Getting a little closer all the time.

I hooked er onto the camper for the first time this year to move it over by the house and prepare for the maiden voyage this weekend.




The dogs are ready to go.

A fellow V-Rodder has hosted several parties at different ralleys with a Raptor just like that. An excellent rig.

I keep meaning to mention that I really like the look of the white letters on the rear tires. Any plans to do the fronts the same way?

Oh yeah!

I just got the tires swapped from the steel inner rear wheels(which had new tires) to the fronts which are rounded.
I think the way the fronts were worn was contributing to the shimmy of death.

Anyway,,,yes the fronts are going to get the raised white letter treatment.

The maiden voyage was a success ,,,we made it too Sacandaga lake with only a blown trailer tire slowing things down a bit.



The offending tire.
