    Show us some job carnage

    Some days (or nights) you can't get outta first gear, no matter how many times you pop the clutch.... I remember that line from some 70s racing movie, that I literally can't remember anything else about. Some things just stick in my head....

    Rawhide and The Burb

    Still haven't gotten the codes checked; too busy with the show prep and then the event. Rawhide performed well, but 1 ton truck suspension and very rough streets in downtown Houston are not a good mix! Finished unloading the box truck today, and I had several totes of shop manuals and car...

    Just picked up a 95 k1500

    That sucks, glad you're not seriously hurt.

    Toy trucks for sale

    That's a crew cab dually with a bike, all diecast and plastic. Fully assembled, I just didn't take it out of the package. Apparently this was a line of merch that you could buy at the Harley Davidson dealers. I don't know if that's where he got it, or somewhere else. There are a couple on ebay...

    Toy trucks for sale

    I have an "extra" Coke '90 Chevy C1500, the red and white one with the big Coke bottle in the bed. Let me know by in the morning, cause it's going to the show.... One big reason these are so hard to find....they only made 9600 of them. Two in a case, spread out all over the country, isn't very...

    Favorite beer

    Very interesting, those are cool looking cans. I'll have to research this brewery, seems like something my hot rod buddies would be into. They Chicago area?

    Tray for 2nd battery

    Entirely possible! If these trucks could tell us their stories, I'm sure there'd be all sorts of stuff that'd blow our minds....

    I also got these from him. The Chevy dually is the snapfast kit, but assembled; the assembled GMC C3500 phantom dually is missing the grille insert but otherwise complete. I have another phantom dually kit, in the bag, the decal sheet is damaged but the rest is mint unopened.

    Toy trucks for sale

    Last chance on this, let me know if y'all want this! In the morning it's going to the show, along with the RLC truck. I cringe at the number of these old kits I went through back in the day, knowing what crazy $$ they go for now....

    Tailgate Replacement

    Even in the South it's getting hard to find good tailgates. When I was at the yard recently, every truck that still had one, it was bent or jammed shut. I'd like to put a proper gate on my crew cab, but haven't found a good one when I had $$. Missed one the right color, a few months ago, cause...

    Tray for 2nd battery

    Yes you're correct on the years differences. I've had a couple of these, out of parts trucks at the yards. If your truck was ordered with the second battery (available for the gas truck in addition to being mandatory for the diesel) you didn't get the box, because they occupy the same space. I...

    After listening to Bob Seger and thinking and thinking about American history why hasn't Chrysler gone to path with General Motors

    Yeah what back in the day was a 3 way or in more polite company, an open relationship.....

    After listening to Bob Seger and thinking and thinking about American history why hasn't Chrysler gone to path with General Motors

    When Mother Mopar had her rich German husband who was big on efficiency, then after she spent a lot of his money, she got a divorce and hooked up with a sexy Italian husband. Now she dumped him for a French guy.....

    Any Advantage to a Suburban over a Tahoe/Yukon???...

    Only bad thing about all that space... it's VERY EASY to find things you "have" to put in that space. Changing over from the Burb to CCLB, meant deciding "do we need this/can it stay in the shop?" A lot....I had a couple of plastic totes up against the front wall of the bed, with clothes in...

    Daily truck pics

    These two are "working" at the Auto Rama custom car show in Houston this weekend, just like Rawhide. The convention center is next door to 59/69 freeway, and the vendor and exhibitor parking is under the elevated freeway. The pewter truck is a crew cab shorty, 4x4, hard to get a good picture...

    Got this yesterday from a friend of mine, he says he has some more kits he'll bring me tomorrow. Still completely sealed, ready to build..... $50 including shipping, I will pack in a double layer box.

    Cross-platform parts that actually work in GMT400s

    I hadn't even noticed that the picture isn't a truck! Currently the Burb just has the cable end with the ball on it, sticking out of the kick panel. Looks like a bass string.... I wanted to fix it before it went to the shop, but other stuff kept getting in the way..... I think the one in Rawhide...

    Toy trucks for sale

    That looks pretty cool! My brother had a Nylint K5 Blazer, metal with a plastic hardtop. The top is long gone, but the rest is still in great shape. We used to put his GI Joes in it(the 3 3/4" ones with all the articulation). I'll post a pic in the morning, gotta get it out of the shop to take...

    Considering a 93 K2500

    Sometimes it takes a while, but I believe the right truck is out there.... I looked for a long time before I found mine. Yesterday I had two people ask me about my CCLB, wanting to buy it or telling me what I need to be doing with it. Had the truck a week, first time that happened. Had a guy at...

    Center Drink Holder

    I have a complete tan one.... I'll post a pic later(it's at the show venue and I'm not yet!).

    These are not great pix cause done in a dark shop building. But it's a Skyhawk pinball machine that we got through the parts store business back in the early 80s; been in the backroom till last week.
