Re: Project Underhaulin Update?

Hmmmm ... I'm not sure what to think about all this ... trying to remember details about all this from several yrs ago. However, I do remember calling & actually talking to ?Russ? (he put phone # in post on original thread about truck build). I had a WTF frame of mind when rang him, because I had bought a new dash pad for the project & had it drop shipped there. He was appreciative that I called instead of just trashing him on the forum. He thoroughly answered every question I asked him (I had written out a list of them) & had a genuine concern about the whole situation, only wanting to make it right. In the end, about 30+ minutes phone conversation, I felt pretty bad for the guy and could come up with no real advice or answers on how he should handle it all. I remember just thinking "damn what a mess".
I'm over it all now ... a bought lesson is the best kind ... thankful I only had less than $100 in it all; I know some are not that lucky.

Re: Project Underhaulin Update?

It is a bad deal, but would be nice to see it completed and let the people in control do what they need to with it. People shouldn't be throwing stones. They obviously have no idea what all goes into a build like this in these circumstances. I'm sure this truck has became more of a heart ache for all involved lately rather than joy and happiness.

Re: Project Underhaulin Update?

I know this is probably not my place to say and it is been said before but, a few pictures of the truck in it's current state would have been nice. I realize some people don't have modern cameras an such , but this has gone on a long time , and Im sure everybody would just have been happy to have seen the progress of the truck . I only put in a few buck towards the truck a very long time ago , but I have watched this fall apart slowly. I would be very unlikely to donate or participate in a donation for a cause for somebody if there is no end result. There is almost no reason for somebody to not be able to produce a pic of the current truck condition( ask a friend/relative to take a pic if you don't have a camera) to prove the work that was done. I get that life gets in the way , but nobody is literally that busy.

The point is many promises made(even a simple pic) but never any action shown. That is how you separate a line of BS from other circumstances. Is been a decade on this project, when will those saying "dont thrown stones now,give him a break" wake up? Not even one of his local supporters can get an update or pics, hmm?

I believe a civil, respectful discussion is in order here and should be had. People need to be held accountable and give answers, The time for latitude has been eroded by broken promises and inaction.

Re: Project Underhaulin Update?

After all this I don't believe the truck exists anymore. If it does prove it, a couple simple pics of it in it's current state would suffice.

Re: Project Underhaulin Update?

Russ, sent me a few pics today of the progress. The truck will also be on display at the 2017 Southeastern ALL Chevy/GMC Truck Nationals on July 15th in Goodlettsville, TN.

Re: Project Underhaulin Update?

That is a nice color. I hope for his sake those are old pics and he is farther along than in those pics to have it done by the 15th other wise he's going to have to pull some all nighters.

When I asked the truck was complete (or just needed stuff like the trim put back on) but basically done, but they didn't know what to do because Dawn didn't leave the truck to anyone in particular in the will, but they were sure one of the older grandsons was meant to get it, but he's still a minor, and I guess from knowing the family/situation, the guys building the truck knew it would just get sold immediately for cash if it was given to a family member of age before it could go to a grandson that would cherish it.

That's where they were stuck at and why the thread was closed.

That's all 2nd hand info (maybe 3rd) and to the best of my recollection.
I'm glad to see a picture of the truck, and it must be an old pic because it was supposed to be just ready for trim . Thanks

No "Thanks" needed. That person was mistaken on the progress of the truck. If you would like to see it in person you are more than welcome to come to Nashville this Saturday and see it.

Bryan, is it going to Nashville as a complete/drivable truck, or on a trailer with some body panels bolted on?

I was actually planning on attending the show, but kinda forgot it was my wife's birthday weekend, and she wanted to go to Raleigh, NC to see Dierks Bentley for her gift.

This is the text from Russ that I got this morning when I confirmed he was still bringing it.

"Yes sir. I don't think it will be done but it will be close enough for display. I have been working my tail off on it but it has been an uphill battle."

No apologies needed or expected from anybody as far as I'm concerned. Main goal is to get the project done like it was promised. There is no one here that has donated time, money, or parts to this project who isn't disappointed that the road was longer than expected. We're almost to the light at the end of the tunnel and ultimately that's the main thing.

Russ is probably sitting back and wondering how he became the bad guy to a bunch of people that he never even met.

Depends on who you ask. I would have personally never taken on such a task, so I have a ton of respect for him just for trying to take it on and see it to the end.

Been following along since the beginning. I'd never consider Russ a bad guy. Clearly his heart was in the right place. Maybe a little too ambitious in his plans (who isn't guilty of that?) and I'm assuming he was embarrassed because of the lack of progress so he "disconnected" from the community.

I just don't see the attempt to deceive here.

Re: Project Underhaulin Update?

I didn't take too many pics yesterday but we were parked right next to him (and stole some of his canopy space during the downpours!). It looks really, really good. In talking with the guy that came up with him, he is WAAAY more financially invested in getting it finished than most people seem to realize. I hope for his sake they can get finished quickly and that wrapping it up with the family goes smoothly.
