    I picked up this Suburban back in May for $500. Someone took out the 350 and the 700r4 and put in a 327 & th350 out of a 68 Vette. It wouldn't start when I got it, because the timing was off a notch. So I fixed that changed the pulgs and wires and it fired right up. It already had Edelbrock intake, carb, and headers on it when I got it. It needs some work but it runs great. I have already taken it to Nebraska and back with no problems.
    This is about what it looked like when I got it...

    I'm still debeting on lowering the rear.

    I still need to do the caddy taillights, fix the front seats, one piece windows in front, custom door handles and paint it. there are other little things I am going to do like a Black Ash wood grain on the dash and doors. I want to do four 15" Boston subs in it.

    For $500.00 you did great. The mods so far look good. I would only lower the rear 1", I'd leave a little front rake. JMO.

    I work at a stereo shop here in Albuquerque called Mesa Radio. I have been doing car audio for 15 years the last 5 at a real shop.

    When i got the truck it needed the headliner redone so when i had it all apart i wired it for the drop downs and add mdf to mount to.

    So i went today and bought the parts i need to do the axe flip.
