About “Black Betty”

I actually went on craigs list and was wanting to buy a old mustang or camarro. I couldn't find anything that caught my eye. So I started looking for an old truck. I still couldn't find anything. I put an ad up asking for a cheep vehicle that needed a little work but that would go up and down the street. I found her in Springfeild MO. Drove her home that night and hadn't had any issues with her on the way home. About 150 miles.

About “Old Blue”

Got my truck October 2010 for $400. After a little work and tuning she runs fantastic...especially after being parked for almost 5 years. My plans are to fix her up and give her a rat rod look...flat black paint, boss 338 wheels, lowered suspension etc.
