"The Black Truck"


I bought this truck new off the lot in Feb '96, and I've owned several other trucks that I used for work since then. This truck became known simply as  "The Black Truck" in reference. It has remained as the focus of my creative outlet, and is used as a daily driver, for Truck Pulls, Drag Racing, hauling mulch, towing the drag truck, whatever I need it to do.

"The Drag Truck"


I bought this '97 2wd to use as a daily driver in 2004 with 225k miles on it. I drove it almost everyday for 3 years, then when my family grew in 2007 I didn't have much use for a second regular cab truck. Since I didn't have any luck selling it the truck got parked.


Spring of 2009 rolls around and I decided to rip into the truck, gut everything possible while investing as little as possible to make a reliable, fun drag truck.
