    Hello all!

    I'm Roger, I'm new to the site, but not new to Chevys! I've had a lot of trucks (and cars) come and go through the years, but I've had my faithful 75 Chevy since the late 80's, when I was 15. Even though that's when I got it, it's been in the family since it was new. Grand-dad bought it brand new in 75.

    It's not even CLOSE to the same, stock, 6-cylinder truck it was back then. I put a 350 in place of the 250 c.i. inline 6 many years ago. It's got a Holly 750 carb with vacuum secondaries, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, custom tailored Performance Distributors HEI, 2 1/4 inch Heddman headers, hmmmm.....lots of stuff that I don't remember right now. :money:

    I also removed the stock 3 speed manual, and replaced it with a TH-400. I got a great deal on the tranny from a friend of mine, then spent way too much to have it rebuilt using top-of-the-line parts. Among the parts was a stage 2 shift kit, and....hehe...that's all I can remember. Inside, I shift it with a B&M Megashifter. Looking back, I wish I would have found a 4 speed auto transmission for it.

    It's been lowered 3 inches in the front, and four in the back. The local Les Schwab installed new springs, spindles, A-arms and shocks up front. In the back, they used leaf spring hangers and shocks to get me closer to the ground. I also had them slap on a beefy front anti-sway bar. And, guess what? It still handles like a truck. :rofl: But it looks cooler doing it. :great: It has four 15x10 Ultra aluminum wheels, and four P295/50R15. Don't worry, even though all four tires are the same size, they aren't set up to stick out past the fender lip. You know what I'm talking about. :happy:

    Some new rims and tires, as well as some rust repair, are in her near future.

    Here's a few pix:


    So that's a little about my truck, and even littler about me. Just how we like it, right? :money: So, stop by and say hello to me, so I can click on your profiles and check out your rides!
