Old is out In is kool
« on: February 18, 2019, 07:59:20 PM »
I traded the 51 for a 1966 Chevrolet C-20. The brakes are jacked up. The motor was timed at 30* after TDC. WOW how did this even run? Had to reset the distributor. Needs a ton of TLC. Motor is newer 350 and a turbo 400

Plenty of room in there for a big block!!  I built one like that for a friend about 30 years ago with a 400 turbo and a 468" Rat motor!!  It was one bad Toby!!

Cheap build. No BBC around here. People who don't know WTF they are doing should not mess with brakes! Somebody put a anti lock brake proportional valve in a brake system that didn't have one. 1 in and 1 out on the same side. I managed to get 1 front brake to get pressure. Gonna redo the brakes old school style. I need to find a residual valve.

Hello State of Illinois . It's a 1966 c20 not a 2019 Silverado. I didn't steal it. One small "mistake" by the previous owner shouldn't void the title!!! WTF I'm not doing a bonded title on a $500 truck.

I hate dealing with the dmv. Act like everyone’s out to screw the state. Hopefully you can get in touch with the old owner and get the title fixed.
Good luck on the brakes.

Went to a different DMV office. They were much more helpful. Said it should go right thru . If not it will be time to find a new birth certificate for it. The place out of Florida said $499.00 plus tax. WOW that's highway robbery. Didn't check with Broadway Title.

Yes it is lace. It was a spider table cloth that I bought off Evil bay. Coarse lace type works best. I tried intricate lace and you can tell somethings there but not sure whats there. This pattern has spiders in it. When it's done I'll show some close ups.
