War Wagon!

New ride
I picked up my new truck today. It’s a 1957 Chevy panel truck. The engine is a 350 with a Holley 600 4bbl. It has an automatic 350 transmission with a 9″ Ford rearend. The rear suspension is a four-link with coil over shocks. The front suspension is from a Camaro. The rear is tubbed with large Mickey Thompson drag tires. The lowering and frame notching means I can’t put the motorcycle in the back like I had planned. It has disc brakes all around, A/C, shaved handles with power locks and windows.

I naturally have a heap load of buyer’s remorse…

I plan on mitigating that by heading to LA and working with Ryan’s friend Jeff get rid of some of the electrical gremlins and start building a functional interior. If you remember, I wanted to build a vehicle like this as Hack-A-Day’s flagship, so we’re going to cram this with as many monitors and as much WiFi gear as we can muster. I’m hoping the final result will be a mobile work space with enough amenities to put most home offices to shame.

    You do realize, of course, that working from your vehicle is akin to living in your car, and not a goal of most people.

    It is still a Chevy, buy Torq Thrusts!!
    Don’t put monitors in asinine places like on Pimp my ride.
    And don’t worry about buyers remorse, it looks like a great vehicle!!
