W O W ! What an idea. It may look a little strange, but I think it will surprise many people.

So far I have about 4K invested, lots of time, blood sweat and tears with the same idea as you, to make a Hot Rod out of an ordinary truck. I'm 69 by the way.

And I call myself "Old Guy" here. I'm a spring chicken of 58. You guys inspire me! Actually, you guys put me to shame! I'm still enjoying a little wrenching on occasion and was recently considering selling off a couple of projects around here, but after seeing this project and knowing your ages, I'm going to get to work on those projects.
'01 Supercharged Bonneville - I'm going to whip you back into shape! I've got most of the parts I need to get over 300 HP out of the supercharged 3.8L motor. It was my pride and joy for years, but blew a head gasket and I replaced it as my daily driver with the Colorado. So, I'll get to work on it and it'll be a sweet highway cruiser for my wife and I to take on vacations. There's nothing like cruising at 80MPH in a car with incredible ride quality and seats that are more comfortable than my Lazy-Boy recliner!!
Thanks for inspiring me guys!

Man, I'm the same age as OldGuy..Maybe a couple of months younger, but too beat up over the years to do a lot of wrenching anymore.

As far as the spring chicken part, I'm more like the mid Autumn one myself....
