    Well I may be out of the contest, but I'm back to it now. After not touching it since July, I started fabricating the rear suspension. I also fabricated the tag axle. I hope to start making some progress now.

    I've been wanting to build an early 70's one of these myself. I'll be watching this one close, especially the fifth wheel lift. Great start so far!

    Lexington is closer for me than Concord. It may be this weekend, but I'll check them again to see if they have any.

    That car spent most of it's life in a box forgotten in my basement. I'm glad to see it finished and spending some time in the sun. Great combo!!

    I'm not sure if there is an Olies near you, but I'm pretty sure that the one in Lexington and the one in Concord had several of the Crunch trucks for $7.99.

    I would like to build one of these myself. We use to keep up the maintenance on one of these (F600) that was a garbage truck. We called it the maggot wagon. I always hated working on that truck, but would like to build one now. The cabs from 67-79 are basically the same as the cabs of the pickups for the same year model. The dash is slightly different in the larger trucks and a little more industrial looking. The one that we kept up had a 330 engine in it. It looked very similar to an FE (352, 360, 390) but slightly different.
