been watching on Facebook and never noticed it on here but will pay more attention on here. i have always liked the chevy luv and this is really getting good, what engine is that by chance?



Thank you hope to get her done soon.....the motor is a Cummins from trailer trash kustoms resins (Rusty McBride) its a really nice piece couldn't think of anything cooler then a turbo diesel motor for her :)

Chevy Crud... Rare to see one that ain't rusty in real life! This is looking EPIC! Great quality on the turbo! I'll need to steal a study hall every week at school to lathe some stuff in the metal shop....

 

Keep it up!

Have access to both on the Fifth of next month! This is why I've been looking forward to school all summer. We don't have a big enough house for all the cool machines we want.
