    Just in case you aren't sure if you like my '99 GMC, maybe you'll prefer my other ride ... it's a '48 Chevy truck powered by a '68 Oldsmobile 455 / TH400 (Toronado drivetrain) in the bed! Here's more pic's and write-up here: Unreel Chevy truck

    What a great looking ride! I've always wanted to stuff an Olds fwd in something since I saw one in the back of a 911 Porsche! Man, that car went like stink! I was a teenager and driving a VW at the time. I dreamt that I was the king of the boulevard with a big 455 in the back of my dub! Later in life I ended up chasing that fantasy with the mid engined Pantera.
