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 “Big Red”

Been looking for a car for my son to drive and finally found one that we both liked and at a good price. We just got it today 6/7/08. He is happy with it and I am happy I dont have to drive him around anymore LOL.

Specs for “Big Red”

It has a 351-2V with over 80,000 miles. My dad did most of the looking, I just drove it and liked it though I think it needs shocks/springs as it has a slight sway when turning or driving on curves. Seems like there is a bit of play in the steering as well.
