...NOT my thing.....to me it just seems like a 200k waste!
How many "drivers" could have been built for this much scratch?...
This is from the eBay "auction"......2 bids so far....
"The vehicle has been shown a few times in the local Tucson area but
never for any serious competition... ...excluding a good guys event.
This truck has about 400 miles on the build and is new inside and out.
If you are looking for a show truck ready to go, that needs nothing this
could be your next vehicle.
Hands down it would be a top entry in any Automobile event in the
country. All the money was spent by the builder and the 3 year
construction time was the headache and stress of the owner, all YOU
need to do is buy it!!!
I’m sure the next new owner will enjoy this truck and will be more then
happy with it."
i think i said this last time this truck showed up on ebay but anyways. I can not figure out why the heck everyone thinks they need a 500+ hp blown engine in a truck that will never be allowed to smoke the back tires. I mean come on nobody is going to pay 200k for a truck and then take the chance of throwing a rock into the rear fender and chipping the paint. If i was going to build a motor like that it would go into something that i could actually open up every once in a while when the ricer boys get to cocky. the stock y-block would load it on an off of an enclosed trailer just fine. Then there is the polished chassis and axles and stuff apparently none of these guys grew up on a dirt road or anywhere that it snows. It is purdy tho and a very nice build but not for that price.
That is simply 'over the top.' When I get 'Rusty Red' runnin I'd like to park it next to something like this. They would not let me got close, I'm sure. Even with the 'see through' fenders on all corners and custom ventilation through the floor of my cab, I think ole Red would have greater utility than this dream boat. Hey, I don't want to be too critical. Everybody needs to do and enjoy their own thing.
Soon for Washington State west of the Cascades

assuming I ever had that kind of disposible cash, I might build one like that. But like everything I own, it would get driven, tires smoked ect. Course with that kind of cash, you can repaint the bumpers fenders ect as needed if running it hurt anything. shrug People say I am nuts cause I have 50k in my trike, it will smoke the tires, bring the front end 3' off the ground and is doing well in shows so far. I drive it back and forth to work every chance I get and everywhere I feel like riding. never owned a trailer queen never will

Its not that I want it or anything. And I'm not a "show car" guy myself, but as a home builder when I see this kinda top quality stuff I really admire their craftsmanship.
For sure these things are not practical--although this could be used on the streets for riding around--but I wouldn't want to have to clean that chrome undercarriage--even once.
Its a total show car to me, but it actually runs--some show cars "dont'".
So I'll givem credit for that.
My only criticism would be that I just can't unerstand how they could think that the air cleaner sticking through the hood--fits with the trucks overall "theme" so to speak. To me that air filter is a glaring item that doesn't fit with everything else they've done so well.
I'd like for them to cover that air cleaner with a nice shapely painted hood scoop as part of the hood. Maybe a nice painted sheet metal scoop with the air opening at the rear? Something like that? Something that was contoured to fit with the hood etc. I could live with that.
But overall they did a super clean and great build.
