    Nice ride Mike! I came pretty close to buying the same setup when I was back in CA but after letting in run for a few I could hear the bottom end thump of a rod knock. That would be sweet if you could find a wrecked newer truck with a Hemi drivetrain in it!

    No broken bones :cheers::cheers::cheers: it was pounding like my foot was going to explode as soon as I sat down this morning 5 days on crutches and they want me back.
    This happened last night as I walked out the front door to fast and it just folded forward on me
    tore ligaments on the top of my foot and one up to me nea was burning this morning.
    That is why I thought I better take my but to the hospital
    I slept most of the day :happy10:

    Allergic to aspirin..... must be because I was raised on real food and fresh fruit:-D Not even going to unwrap my ugly foot for a picture so don't ask :-D

    Mine is on top of my foot and in front on my ankle, Treva unwrapped it this morning about 5 am so I could lay in the whorl pool tub :-D
    She said it looked like a balloon :cheers: and made here make a weird face and handed me my meds with a class of water :happy10:
    This is my second one Tony :happy10: I had one when my two sons was 12 and 14 years young :happy10: They loved driving it on the back roads, it was a hard removable top that I took off one time and sealed it back on.
    This one is in much better shape and I will leave it white and do some black call outs on the hood I have for it that say RAM WAGON on the sides


    Thank you Keith :happy10:
    Victoria is still setting where I parked it so I could listen to some music that evening when I was enjoying a few wobbly pops and dreaming of the day I will have him on the road with this hood on HIM :-D
    A friend said I should name him the white goose :profilel: lamo!!
    I thought about badging it up like a Harley Davison package Ramcharger 8)

    Still looking for an engine!! But I do have a van spotted with a LA 360 and a overdrive in a van Creed and I will go look at it this Strongend 8)
    The trans in the ramcharger works real good but we are thinking it might be a good idea to go with the overdrive trans from the van, he said I can drive the van and check it out and asking $400 and we pull it and bring the van back so he can use it for storage :happy10: I forgot what year he said the van was.

    Moving forward today and hobbled out and vacuumed half of the ramcharger out 8) It sure felt good to get out and do something :cheers:
    My son's are going to let me have my 360 back that I had in my race truck
    Creed is going to be real busy for the next two weeks playing music, He will be in Little Rock Arkansas tomorrow night at the state fair and then back here to play at the Side lines Club Friday and then to a couple more gig's, They did a privet party for the Harley Davison Dealer in town Saturday night.
    The hood is sealed up and ready to wet sand the chit out of it and do any repair that needs to be dun before it get's painted white

    This 360 is warmed up real nice and would push my old truck with 3.55 in it down the 1/8 mile in mid 8's till it burned up the tran's.

    Creed has the engine ready :cheers:
    The plan was to put this 360 in there stock car, I told them they could have it when they need it :happy10:
