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 “RAGE”

In Feb. 2004, I bought the '72 Mach 1 for $10,000 in a small town in Geogia. Her name is "Rage." Someone I knew at the time had told me about the car and said the owner was thinking about selling it. One weekend, I went over to the guy's house and asked about it. He opened the garage door and I couldn't believe what i saw. It was love at first sight! I knew I had to have this car. About 2 weeks later after I bought it, I had someone come up to me and offer me $30,000 cash for it. Of course, I turned it down. I am the 3rd owner.
