About “Pace Truck”
My truck was one of those great screamin deals you hear about but never believe actually happen. I saw it advertised in the local "Penny Pincher" at $4,500 o.b.o. by such-and-such a date. I really couldn't afford a whole lot, so I made a lowball offer of $2,000. It turned out that mine was the ONLY offer... Believe it or not, the guy was so desperate for money that he took it!
(Sorry it's so dirty in the pictures. I don't have a camera anymore since some lowlife stole mine!)
About “The Yoder”
Paid $300 for this truck when I turned 16. Wrecked it twice, first time rolled it 2 times into a creek. put a cab out of a junk yard on it and got it back on the road. The second I rear ended a Neon and messed up the radiator support.
Currently parked, timing chain guides are gone and chain has been slapping the timing cover, maybe that was the wierd noise that annoyed the hell outta me all the time? But the motor is out and tore down, found out it was worse than I thought, rod and main bearings were at the end of their life, valve seals were leaking, cam wore down, cylinder walls are wore and lots of carbon build up. Got big plans for the motor, will update when finished, but I will say Im gonna have some help from LCEngineering.
