    Nothing in MD either. I'm about an hour from Philly. The culture doesn't seem to be as big here as in the West. Wish there was something like this in the area: http://squarebodysyndicate.com/index.html. Been following them for a few years. They get together and caravan to truck shows, and do squarebody builds. One of their builds won at Sema.

    We're all pissed we got rusty rigs to work on and if we all got together it would turn into a pissing contest as to who has the least rust and nothing would ever get done.

    Wow that's some luck man. No roadkill-style side of road engine swap right? Hows the new one running?

    I love roadkill!! Lol if i had a lift i woulda swapped it right there on the side of the interstate. I got a motor and tranny from a 75 c10 for 700. The motors doin good, kinda doggish n lazy and the tranny shit itself so now it has another th350. The 4th one since i bought the truck. I wish it had more balls but its a daily not a hot rod so...

    Yea, roadkill is pretty awesome.

    You'll eventually get a tranny that lasts, either that or start building them yourself!

    Take that whole Th350 idea and squash it, put a TH400 in it and call it its forever trans. It's a truck not a car and should have truck trans in it.
