Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

Cool thread!
The prices here in sweden are ofcourse higher, but I like budget builds better, since lack of money seems to spark ingenuity...
Mine will be on that note definitly when I start with it this fall

Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

Yea I agree buget builds are more fun for me because u don't have alot on the line. Like my truck motor I have gotten my moneys worth many times over I have around 1100$ in the long block and it has about 50 nitrous passes on it and alot of motor passes and still runs great. On the other hand my camaro engine has alot of money in it and it would be alot to loose if it came apart.

http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=592186 Here's a square that is in the works. I'm watching this one. Though very new I hope it stays the course of a driveway build.

Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=562692 Another square that I really really like. It's more of a show case than build thread, sorta, kinda. But it is really Kool and if you are all about stance ( I know I am) then you'll dig this 3/4 ton turned 1/2 ton in the weeds hauler. Plus it doesn't hurt it looks just like my '76.

Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

Something to think about is that a lot of these threads are being constantly updated. So check in on these guys time to time. You'll be surprised at what may be done......

Here's one for the '67-'72 Crowd. I don't find as many '67-'72 trucks as I would like. So if you see one or have one going on post it.

Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

It won't be too much longer before winter will set it's sights on us. So for the sake of staying motivated let's keep this thread motivated with more builds. Because we don't want a long boring winter do we? Lol. Thanks.

Old post but very well put. Probably the biggest thing that some of the guys on here are guilty of is assuming that anyone asking a question about something has an unlimited budget.

For some of us a Scott's front end setup, Porterbuilt dropmember or Currie rear axle assembly just takes this months build funds or is a couple of payments on the card while for others the same piece is equal in cost to the total annual build budget or some guys total build budget. Still spending a bit more on quality items in some places on the build and saving money by going conservative in other areas can still come with a build that is well within budget that can be added to later when funds become available.

Spend the money on the critical pieces like the front and rear suspension and brakes and wait until later for the trick pulleys on the engine or the trick valve covers or other bling that can be bolted on in a short period of time. That set of steelies and good tires or that set of custom wheels you picked up at the newly divorced gal's yard sale across town for pennies on the dollar will work fine until you save for the rims you really want.

Re: Low Buck Build Threads Help or LBBTH

Here was mine, the rust got the better of it and the frame was weak so it was sold for dirt cheap I only had about 700 into it not including the borrowed 35's
