  1. Petetrucker07 added a post in a topic 69 F100 Custom. update..11/27. interior begins   

    I decide to get a little done this, this weekend. I started getting the Mustang interior roughed in. The door panels were close in height, a little trimmin, I think it'll look good once I get some seats put in it. A little more trimming needs to be done on the console, but same thing, once some seats are in, it'll look good. I may try to fit a mid 90s dash in this cab, not quite sure yet. I do want low back buckets for this, I need to figure out what kit will have right lookin ones to steal from. Here's a shot of how things are lookin so far. Any help or comments are welcome. Thanks

    Like I said on the bench. You've done an outstanding job on this. The engine was an awesome piece, this all came together very well.

    That K104 looks like a nice piece. I may have to get one, one of these days.

    To answer your question, yes. Mainly owner operators will spend the 1000s to 10s of thousands to hop up a diesel engine. If you search on youtube, PDI performance, that will kinda get in to it. They host Diesel Dyno Days, or something like that, every year. Their show truck has a 2000 horse C16.

    Here's a couple more sunrise with trucks I was driving.
    This Pete has a very strong, hopped up 3406. Oversize turbo. It's a first year 379. I really liked this truck.

    This truck is a 386 Pete. It's a last year CAT truck. It has a C13 in it, all stock, but ran with the big Cummins.

    Once you've been driving long enough, you kinda have a rough idea how long it takes point to point to point. 
    Micheal, I live in the Mojave Desert. I do most of my truckin through the desert in the middle of the night, but sometimes in the middle of day. During the summer, I really do my damnedest to stay inside the truck in the cold air conditioning. Same in the winter. This morning for example, it's 28 degrees, in the Mojave Desert. If you ever get a chance to look this up on the map. I leave my yard in Victorville Ca. I drive north on highway 15, east on highway 40 to Amboy Ca. Then I keep going on east on 40 to Needles Ca where I take highway 95 south to highway 62, take that east to Arizona. I run across highway 72 then take a small road down to interstate 10 east, run that in to Phoenix. 
    I used to run it during the sunrise hours, man let me tell you, there were some amazing sunrises out there. 
    Here are a few sunrise and sunset pics from travels in Southern Ca, Nevada, and Arizona. This one of the many reasons I love my job. Some of the sunrises were never seen anybody else.

    And finally, an ocean sunset, sittin in traffic.

    There is also a new, released Jan of this year, Pono Music. It was developed by Neil Young. I've heard mixed reviews. I never attempted messing with it. But just another option to look in to.

    Parents first car? Any stories remembered?
    After the revisiting of the first ride. I thought about this. The stories or the moment, of your parents first car.
    My mom, her first car after getting her license was a rented 78 Pinto, white. Her and 2 of her friends went cruisin Whittier Blvd.
    My dad... he built this before he had a license. It was 64 and 1/2 Mustang fast back. 351 Cleveland dual 450 Holleys on top of a tunnel ram, 4 speed and a set 4:56s. He drove this car to DMV to take his test! The tester asked him how he got there and was gettin home. My said drove it here and drivin it home. The tester said I guess I'm over lookin all the hot rod stuff and passing you. 
    I remember the stories on they both told of cruisin Whittier Blvd in the mid to late 70s. My dad hanging out with car guys. He had a buddy, he remained friends with him till dad passed 9 years ago. This friend had a Super Stock Valiant, named Prince Valiant. He had another buddy with a 56 Chevy Bel Air, built 454. Named All Show, No Go. I saw this car once. Orange and white, white tuck and roll bench seats. Tubbed with wide rally style steelies, 4 inch wide pizza cutter steelies up front. They used to go drag race at Irwindale and OCIR. Drive to the track, then drive home, Super Stock and Prostreet cars! Sounded like a great time to be livin in So Cal.

    Any time bud. I know it kinda peterizes the KW, but I think it looks better, a little custom.

    I can't wait to rebuild the 406 in my Camaro, have the 2.05 valves put in the camel backs that have sittin on my bench for the past 5 years. I love settin off car alarms in the grocery store parkin lot. I sure miss drivin it.

    I'm guessin it's time to let the ghost go. With only a few days, no motivation to do much of any modeling lately, I'm gonna bow out.

    My parents never let me forget that car. It was a prostreet vega. My dad made it carseat friendly by mounting eyebolts in the right places. My car seat fit perfectly between the wheel tubs. The first 6 months of my life, I was driven around, almost every night to get me to go sleep, IN A PROSTREET Vega! My mom has the Polaroids of that car, one of these I'll scan them. The car was similar to this pic, ex ept it had a single Dominator on top of a high single plane intake. And the color was a basic red.
