What I'll be building is using the 1993 Ranger STX kit, along with parts from a snap-tite NASCAR and engine from the Revell Mustang convertible, I'll be building a faux-stock truck, similar in style to the Monte Carlo from the Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.

I'll be using the rear axle/suspension, wheels/tires, steering wheel, and the roll cage from the NASCAR kit.

Here's the chassis so far.

That project was called "Rolling Thunder", and actually a Mazda B2000 that was reskinned with a Ranger front clip. Of course, the Mazda is still just a Ranger in disguise! :unsure:

I still have to do a little more bondo work, but I added the bodykit from the Monogram '91 Chevy S10 kit, along with a modified front airdam from the Revell Acura Integra. Rear end had to have a filler panel made as well. Also opened up the rad core support to allow for the full effect of the kit see-through grille shell.

Well I finally got some more done on this build. Just about finished the chassis/drivetrain (only have to finish the exhaust) and I finished the interior as well, in which I added a simple rollcage from the NASCAR kit.

'Tis actually a 'Stang 5.0, the #1 spark plug wire is just hidden behind the alternator (which just so happens to be the same color as the engine). :P

As far as updates go, I just started school again for the fall, so it will be a bit before I get back into the swing of things. I do have the body painted though and just have to put on a clear coat which I might try and do this weekend.

Hopefully I'm not ruining a joke or anything :P but I'm referring to "stock truck" as NASCAR does to their vehicles.

Basically it looks fairly stock, but of course has a modified drivetrain and engine.

Actually I do plan on using the lights since it's meant to be a street legal truck (well...save for the non-DOT approved racing slicks :lol: ).
