    Look what followed me home yesterday

    Slowly but surely clearing off my Dad's estate and part of it was towing this Jewel back to my house so I can clean it up and fix a few small things that are safety related until I decide ultimately what to do with it. I would have driven it but the back tires were sketchy and it was also 100 degrees out... 1964 Chevy C-10 with a 230 inline 6 and standard 3 speed.

    I'll take it.
    Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

      That thing is sweet!
      Flock of Hawks | '13 Tacoma | '69 Falcon (currently getting reassembled!)
      I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.

        Sweet like molasses. That is, slow.

            That inline 6 can be hopped up, if it’s the one that has 7 main bearings.

              Agreed! I've seen the build shows. That said, I'm not sure rob needs any more engine out projects untill he finishes up the 20 or 30 he has going already.

                That's a real classic - from a time when pickup trucks were simple tools, instead of the folks driving them...

                  True but at least 4 are Hawks so really that's just like a couple weekends when you think about it right? LOL

                    Guess that depends.. how much time do you put in every weekend?

                    Couple weekend for some, couple decades for others. ​​​
