About “The Burb”

1988 Chevy Suburban. Has been taken care of delicatley its whole life, unfortunately theres some rust spots on it.

About “The Stroker Project”

This is a project that has just gotten out of hand. I started out with a simple $3000 engine swap plan and before I knew it, I was narrowing my 9" to make room for the slicks. Once again, it's back in the garage waiting for me to put the finishing touches on her. Thanks to my #1 Buddy, Jess at Speedway, I now have a SERIOUS roll cage waiting for my steady welding hand!

The last mod is probably going to be the paintjob. Any ideas?
