nice work, small window 67, what's the story on that?
there's too much room in the engine bay, an old school big block would fill it up perfectly ..... but ya evolve or perish, :)

Yup if it was mine there would not be an LS in there....big block much more likely. If small block, then a 400.
But other than that it's a gorgeous truck!

That’s disappointing. What did you use them for? I’m mostly using them for school and back. About a 40mile round trip every day.
Well, I fought front end issues for a long time. I also have a lead foot. I drive hard and fast, so I push the truck a lot, but it is my Dailey driver, so that's not every time I'm in it. I run 32-34 PSI in them, so the tire ware was somewhat even across the tire, being they are on the OE aluminum rims. Although with the front end issues, I did have ware on the outside edge of the tires, That was more than the middle, the ware bars that are in the middle of the tire tread, were even with the tread. I may have gotten a little more out of the tires, had the edges been worn less, bit only about 5000 miles more. I had a set of Cooper Cobras before the mile stars, and they weren't any better. The warranty on both the Coopers, and the Milestars are 40,000 miles. I had a very hard time finding a 275-60/15 tire with a better warranty. The Hankook kenergy have a 70,000 mile warranty. A Corvette guy recommend them to me,and so far so good. They also ride better than the milestars. My advice is this, keep the tire pressure rite, rotate them every 5000 miles, be sure the front end is in good shape and that the alignment is rite, and keep a close eye on their ware. If you see that the tires are wearing funny, take care of it ASAP.

This wasn't parked close enough to the Burb to get it in the picture, but a 95 year old car that's still running...I thought that was really cool! Even if it does have a four letter word on it(this is from when all cars were simple!). The couple that was driving it came to my local ALDI for groceries Saturday when I was there. Fired right up and sounded good!
It's a 1926 Model T Tudor sedan, and it shows how spartan these cars were even in the later years of the model.

Seen this guy on the way home. Looking a little saggy.

Nevermind the guy up ahead, with the very tall, unsecured load.
