    Default 1983 GMC Sierra 2500 Project

    Well, myself and two friends had a little project we did on my old farm truck. Sold it to a friend for $300. And i regret every dollar... Trucks so much fun. Well anyways back on topic. The truck is stock other then our custom exhaust! Okay, we're not mechanics. We did this in a total of 4 hours. And in 4 hours we did, cut off old exhaust, cut hole in the box for the pipes to fit out. Custom made Y pipe. And two prebent pieces to angle the exhaust coming straight up into the box. Then we went into the quancet and rummaged around in the spare parts until we found a very old combine exhaust. It's a pipe made up of thin rolled metal, so you can still bend it and flex it. Well we found all of that. Then we started on the stacks. two 7 and 1/2 foot pieces of conduit pipe. with 90* angle additions on the bottom. And custom angled peices for the tips. Well, words are useless. Just watch the video of what the truck looks like.

    Also, i would have started the truck, but it doesn't start. My friends older brother came home one day, and tried to start the truck. And the trucks carburated. And i don't think he knows how to start a carburated engine. We suspect he just sat there and help the key in, and just let it turn over for a good time. Burning out the starter.

    Awesome. You can't beat cheap fun like that. A friend of mine used to build up cheap beaters just to beat the crap out of them and then shoot them. He called them the poo rides.
