Well i bought myslef another little project to play with. Theres goin to be alot done to it in time, i just need to get some money together to start buying everything. So i bought this truck for 600 buck with a blown brake line and "not running". got the truck towed home hooked up the booster cables and she turned over first time.

Heres the truck when i first got it home.

Shortly after getting it home the cap had to come off, lol

Quick pic of the interior, its pretty mint
