    Surely that's a mud drag truck with slicks right??

    Love it though. My first truck was a 74 Hi-Boy with 37's on it 8)

      Love it.

      Check this one out. Put a set of slicks on it and your there. Not to mention, change the wheels to a set of Weld Typhoons and it's a dead ringer for my '76.

        LOOOOOOOVE IT!

        I like the weight reduction plan - who needs a hood or a bed?

        Not every day you see a big honkin 4x4 leave a sport bike in the dust!

        WELL DONE!
        There's always something new to learn.

                Modern-day gasser. :D (And probably just as unstable over 120 m.p.h.)

                I remember a Hot Rod magazine article back in the dismal 1970s that predicted that trucks could be the bracket cars of the future.

                  You can bracket race anything. All your doing is going up against the clock. I love me a good drag race just not bracket racing.

                    I wonder what he has for a trans? The one-two shift sounds like an automatic, but two three sounds like a stick shift power shifted.

                      Common for a C-6, late 2-3 shift. A big servo spring and a good manual valvebody cures that. Imagine that thing with an 8", 4800rpm converter.

                      Add flaps and taillights, that thing would be killer on the streets.

                        Love stuff like that. Reminds me of a 70's Ford mason dump I saw run a high 12's at Reading, PA track.

                          I remember seeing an article about that truck. It was called "Brickslayer", I think it had a Paxton blower.

                            So, Uinta County, Wyoming - population 20,000 - has it's own quarter mile drag strip.
                            Los Angeles county - population 10,000,000 - has how many full time quarter mile dragstrips? Zero >
                            (fontana is technically in San Bernardino County)

                            sad state of affairs..

                              It looks like there isn't a return road and the vehicles have to come back the strip. It looks like the bike has already turned back towards the starting line and the truck is turning around.
