Well, the boys had built themselves a race car. Once the car was built, they needed a way to haul it and all the race related tools/parts and what not to the track, but needed something cheap ( blew the budget on the race car) After some networking, they found an old ford race rig, problem was, the cab got crushed by a tree years ago. Well, they set off to go look at it. The hauler body was in good shape, but the cab and hood were toast, but a deal was struck, and they dragged it home. After some junk yard searching and internet surfing they found a cab on a dump truck in decent shape, but missing a door. Craigslist turned up a good door, and a local town auction provided the hood. The boys got it running and patched back together , it’s ready to roll again......

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I was quite disappointed when I originally started this build, as the paint job just went haywire, but I’m pleased with the way it worked out in the long run. Originally this was going to be metallic blue, radical departure I’d say, haha.

That looks great Tom, not everyone can show up at the track in a $150,000 toter home setup!
