Vans are cool... there is an old RG van running around town here. I want it but really don't have a use for it.

I haven't driven it in 3 weeks but have the last two days. It ends up getting wedge in my garage with stuff stacked around it and becomes more of a PITA to drive then its worth but I decided I missed driving it. I only drive it when I can park it some place safe and I can keep an eye on it. Its fun to drive around and I like watching people look at it and try to figure out what it is or explain to thier frineds how it is built to go big at Glamis ( I have never taken it to Glamis)

Parked outside my office this afternoon,

i drive my truck to/from all the races i go to and prerun/chase with it. cant get stupid with it because it has to make it home but i have fun.
drive it to the store and all kinds of errands. some cops don’t think it but after they pull me over they wave at me going by now.

best looks is when i drop off or pick up my daughter from high school. she says all the creepers stalk her.

Here's my current slave. Just swapped in a fresh chevy 350/th400 combo. Runs like a dream now and is a helluva lot of fun cruisin to the beach in. I tell you though, you get some weird looks from people when there's no doors or top on it... I love it. I commute over 50 miles a day in it :D

Thats a great looking truck... pics and details?
Thanks, there's a build thread on here someplace, but I haven't updated it in a long time. It's got Camburg long travel, Deavers, Sway-A-Way Bypasses, Light Racing Jounce Shocks, TRD Blower and forged wheels, 37" projects, Lowrance 7200, custom driveshaft and a few other things. I take my kids to school, drive to races, chase, and drive home, only left me stranded once when the lower uniball bolt broke because it wasn't shanked properly. Other than that it's been bulletproof. Has gobs of power (504 HP/550 Ft-Lbs), and I have an early calibration with no speed limiter, so it will go 135 MPH plus on the GPS (I didn't have big enough cajones to keep my foot in it past 135, but it was still pulling).

You make most of the Score races don't you? I think I've seen your truck at a few races, it is a great looking truck.
I prerun and chase with it for all the Baja races as well as some MORE races, and towed our race truck to V2R and Caliente as well. It has 65k miles on it, about 35k since the build.

Alex, who built your A-Arms?
H&M built the whole truck. I did the interior and exterior paint and body work.

I believe H&M motorsports built alex's truck. Their stuff is all top notch stuff.
You are correct and it has been a solid truck and works great.
