I'm sorry, but you've been misinformed. This truck does not belong to me. I put it in my "odds and ends" gallery, as I had taken pictures of it at a car show this last summer. The truck actually belongs to a guy that lives in Valley, Washington, who has his own custom shop. I believe the name of his shop is Valley Customs, but I could be wrong. He's a nice guy, and has a very nice family. I got to speak to him for some time about the truck...if memory serves, it's a 75 crewcab, that's had another crew welded onto the back. I think the chassis is a F650 two ton 4x4 (or something similar). The engine is a Cummins, but I don't know specifically which one. The interior is all transplanted Dodge truck, dash and all....don't know why he did that, but it looked like it sort of belonged there.
This kid did all the work himself, and said he managed it for under $10k, which was impressive to me. He and I chatted for some time, and I told him about my project "Buford".
Anyway, I want to apologize for any misunderstanding, but this isn't actually my truck, and I couldn't in good conscience claim that it was. The accolades should go to the young man in Valley, Washington that did such a good job (and no, I can't remember his name...sorry).
When I finally get Buford finished this spring, and get him on the road and to a couple shows, if by some miracle I get ride of the week then, at least it'll be my truck.
I might have to wait until next year's James Dean Days to see if he shows up, but if he does I'll try to persuade him in our direction. I did tell him about the site, tho....so, I'm sure he's probably been lurking around here already.
