Scott, your handiwork is incredible! It serves to remind me that I need to get my butt back in gear with my '57 Chevy 3100. I started out with a shell and a good rolling chasis. I put in a 350/200-4R and a disc brake / PS conversion on the straight axle. Bump steer was scary at best, and I decided on a Camaro subframe.

After the Camaro subframe was done, I wanted fuel injection and went with an old Crossfire system from an '83 Z-28. I never did get it quite right. Now the bug has bit me to make mine NAPCO-esque.

I need to replace some of the cab floor, and the thought crossed my mind to mount the body on a 1994-2001 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD chasis with a modified wheelbase to match the body. I have a Jeep Cherokee with a 4.0L 4X4 drivetrain that I am going to use instead of the 350. I want to enjoy driving this, not filling it up everytime I turn around.

Thanks for the motivation to get my butt in gear again!
