Nice combo of parts. That's a pretty unique truck! Nice job on the weathering too.

Very cool and imaginative build, but aren't you short about four exhaust pipes? :D


Yeah, that is interesting. I love the build it looks great. Everything looks perfect except those velocity stacks. They are much large diameter than the top of those carbs and as such look a little cartoony. The truck cab on the duece fenders is inspired though. Really nice work.

Cool Pickup!
I like the Chevy cab on the Ford fenders, mixing up the companies, that's cool. Also like that you didn't chop the roof. Usually I see this sort of thing with roof chops but it's good to see yours without one.

Dusenberg? Looks like the '32 Chrysler engine to me. (I KNOW that's where that grille came from. B) )

But whatever the case, I love it. A Chevy powered by ANYTHING but a Chevy engine is cool to me. :D

Great combination of parts, Neal, but it's not SHINY. Even Dr. Cranky is doing a SHINY build. You to come out from the dark side.
