Been awhile since I have been on the site but i'm at it again. Finished up my S-10 finally!!!!!! and Bought a luv for my son and we are starting to put things in motion on it. It's a 79 which some of you may recognize from an earlier build thread by none other than HotRod80. Truck is already set up for a GEN1 SBC and TH350 which we will be going back with that combo. Truck is solid just going to put some luv and a little repair in it.

It is a nice truck and we are going to try and improve it a bit more. Going to build a little 377/th350 comb. Not sure on the converter and rear gear yet but will add some spray when he is comfortable with the truck.
