She might have..but the the tranny took a crap on her old truck while she was out of town. She had it towed to a dealership up in Dayton, and just had to have this Black Beauty when she seen it on their lot. Its really nice, and rides nice for a 4x4. Gets alot better mileage than my Dodge....

I saw a few American trucks over there, near Spangdalham. Of course they probably belonged to US service members, and I don't know if they'd sell them. I also saw some decent Toyota trucks out there. I'm kind of fond of the Toyotas.

I stopped sinking a lot of money in customizing vehicles after being unable to get any of ghat money back after a resale or after one other idiot on the road wrecks the work you did.

is the engine in or out? looks like a good foundation for a mild street/strip car to me. as much as i like that body style of Camaro for a drag car, their frames, or lack of are their weakness when building much more horsepower over stock. i havehad friends before that ran those body styles of F-bodies with lots of cracking and breaking of the frames and such.

but seriously, a nice looking car!

Thats one of the reasons im building a new mud truck. My old chevy has had the frame welded too many times. 5 times around the steering gearbox...The welds never break, but the frame will break next to a weld, im told it makes the surrounding metal weaker. My new truck will have a roll cage, that will be part of the structure of the frame. ...

When he "back-half's" it, the 4-link, and roll cage will actually become the Camaro's frame. So no worries.
