After following the build of Broke Bastard Garage’s Chevrolet LUV, we’ve been waiting with baited breath to see how the truck handled the Zip-Tie Drags and the $3K Hooptie Challenge in Tucson. Going from a little four-banger, dead-nuts stock and worn truck to a shortened, small-block, manual trans ripper in a short time frame isn’t easy, and the last few days have been a bit of a rush project…in addition to work and the build of the LUV, these guys have jobs and in the case of your narrator, he had one hell of a winter bug hit him in the last few days. Would you want to be out in the shop for hours on end, coughing your left lung up with a headache going? We wouldn’t. But that’s why we’ve been watching this build in the first place…the LUV wasn’t so much a thrash build as it is the beginning stages of a project that simply had a deadline to meet. The truck made it to Tucson…so what happened at the track, and better still, what happens now that the race is over? Hit play to find out!
