Just picked up this 74 Thursday, guy didn't know what he had said it had a V8 and automatic, opened the hood and there was a new Vortec 350 and a 700R, new headers and dual Flomaster exhaust and a Powertrax no-slip, has a 4"-6" drop done "right" and it is totally rust free, truck handles and runs like a dream. oh, and it has a new modern day A/C unit too. Couldn't pass it up for $2500.. :good

Thanks Aaron, it is fun to drive. :beer But no Mexican wheels for me :laugh 15's are good just need a little more tire though, but those wheels are ugly and will be replaced, thinking maybe some Centerlines??.. Eventually it's gonna look similar to this one.. :good

Wheels are fine to me. But definatly need more tire on them to take the lowrider look away from it.

Yeah, they're only 24 1/2" tall 26" would bring it up to the fenders, and those wheels have too much back space wheels are tucked in way too far. Of course with a taller tire I'll probably have to drop a gear though.. :rolleyes

Nope, haven't touched it since we moved here too many setbacks, and still trying to get the shop done($$$$$$$$;), and I'm also taking a different route on it, I decided I may as well do it right so it's coming apart down to bare metal and start over. :good
