Azn (Farmtruck and AZN) is gettng tired of playing Sidekick and wants to get back into racing.

After years of Racing with FarmTruck, He now knows nothing beats a Good Healthy V-8 and now

has lots of Inside information to build his own truck.

He has do this on the side and the only cheap Old chevy Truck he can find is a 1 ton.

Well, a 1 ton must be better than a used up 1/2 ton and should have a  better axle and stronger frame, he thinks to himself. (story may change as other wheel options are found  ;) )

AZN knows he wants Bigger tires than his current Partner Farmtruck, so he sends it out to make room for bigger tires.

This is cool! Just my style, I will be watching this one very closely. I've watched those Farm Truck videos on YouTube many, many times. Those steel wheels fit perfectly to the look of this car. I'm tuned in.

Thanks. see if this one hits the finish shelf or finish wall..  :D

 

AZN knows he needs a Good Motor and knows that Farmtruck runs (what he said) a Nascar motor.

Soo off he goes to an out of town Engine Machine shop to get his motor.

 

(out of the Monte Carlo Nascar, Looks too big or about right?)

Back in the corner of the Engine shop, AZN spots a canopy he needs and while loading it up, he finds an almost

complete 615ci ProStock engine..

So he ask for a package deal and gets the canopy for 5gs with a free engine..

Dang!! what a smokin deal he thinks and grabs them both.

(The model motor is getting de-chromed at this moment.. )

I can't wait to see progress either..

 

O, That's my part..

 

 

The shop managed to get the motor shoe horned in and fabbed up a set of headers and cut down the intake so to keep it

all under the hood.. 

 

Knowing that AZN isn't that much of a tuner of carbs, he wonders if going single carb would make it easier to

tune up and more drivable.

I like this. It would be unique to build it pulling one of those frame-twisting wheels up starts.

Thanks Thanks Thanks..

I'm just surprised nobody else is doing one. Firsties!!!  :D

 

While AZN is off with FarmTruck Racing in Texas, the shop decided to get the Tranny hooked up.

Guess AZN don't need cup holders, Just hope he knows how to drive a Stick..  :D

Since the Motor is at the Machine shop, the Truck heads off to the paint shop.

So far it gets a thumbs up from AZN.
