so my dad bought this truck back in 08 for i think it was $1000 it was running it had a 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine with a i think it was a four speed trannny. it was a fun truck... a real gas saver to.until one day the engine overheated and the head cracked we got it towed home and there it was left to rought for about two years and a half...until one day i asked my dad what are you planning to do with the truck he's like idk....of course i asked if i could have the truck hes like sure... so it offically became mine... i thought to myself (now what) i started by jst wanting to rebuild that old engine... then i thought a v8 would be double the fun.... i bought a chevy 350 with transmission for $300(pretty good deal huh?) i started doing all these mods to the truck engine compartment...then i decided i wanted it a little bit lowerd. and from wanting it lowerd it came to i wanted it slammed.its still under construction but in a couple months if you live around ventura county keep a eye out for the LUV!
