Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.
It's like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.....

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol.

Re: How to: Ruin a perfectly good C10

I know your truck, seen it here before and on instagram, but this is the first time I've gone through your entire build thread. In short, wow! Awesome truck, and awesome incremental progress with details along the way to get it there. This is a top notch build thread and build.

Re: How to: Ruin a perfectly good C10

Chris I made a round trip to check it out today but I did have to work on the GTO as well. Man you realize the last time I saw your truck was before you went out west at the RR streetrods show in Bossier, a really long time ago. I've seen you but not the truck since then. Wow it's come a long way. It's in good hands now. Wish you were here today.

It has come a long way since then. Feeling like I might actually be finally close to being “done” with it, though I always have ideas and plans in mind. Wish I was there hanging out, too. I need to get a glimpse of Castro in the flesh.

On hold?

We worked on the GTO & Ratchet's Blazer, all while waiting for various coats of primer or paint to dry. Can't leave out my wonderful wife Brandi either, she kept us fed (very well!) and supplied with beer so that we could keep going without stopping. We were multi-tasking like I've never seen before! I just haven't had time to post up pictures.
