About “Full Metal Jacket”

I recently bought this truck from a car collector in Overton, NE. He bought this truck for $3000 in 2004. The guy he bought it from put in a 327ci engine from a 1968 corvette stingray. About 2 months before I bought the truck from him he took the three on the tree and put it on the floor because the linkages had been worn out on the column shifter, and needed replaced. He also put Rally wheels and tires on the truck as well as a little interior work. This is a fun truck to drive and I hope you guys like it.

About “The Mermaid”

For starters, I am going to say this; this is my sister's car and she has graciously allowed me to show it on this website. It is a 25th Anniversary car that is extremely hard to find. We found this car at a repo lot, called and the next day we bought it.
