About “1 wild truck”

i bought this truck seven yrs ago was a drag truck at one time still have the same motor that in it that i run today sometimes it scares me when i have the urge to get on it.

About “#The Sleeper#”

I found this about four blocks from where I live. It was parked on a gravel lot and had about six For Sale signs in it. As soon as I saw 350 motor and $1,500 obo, I gave the guy a call. We met up the same day and I gave the car a good look over, and test drove it. I agreed to the 1,500 the next day and he took the For Sales signs out of the car. The car was up for sale for only one day.
