Yeah the first thing we did was pull the gas tank and move it to the bed in the form of a fuel cell. Gotta love the idea of keeping a fuel tank next to your driver, lol.

Ive always thought that a toolbox would make a neat place for a fuel cell.
 
This reminds me of this one Chevy I see at the cruise nights. Its a shortbed a few years newer, maybe late 70's. Im a ford guy so I dont study them. But anyway the guy has dragslicks, and a drag ready 4 speed with beer boxes for a center console. He also has bondoed holes in the side. I kinda love it.

Bowtie before I "customized" it:
 
 
After some good ol' spray paint and clearcoat:
 
 
No valve covers as of yet, you wouldn't believe how pricey a set of Bowtie valve covers is for Vortec heads. (Around a couple hundred bucks Confused) Air Gap intake is Professional Products, chose it over the Edelbrock because of the hundred dollar price difference. Hopefully I'll have the carb kit and valve covers ordered this week.
 
Now I'm on to the interior. I'll post pics after the swap meet in two weeks, hopefully by then I'll have the seat, carpet, windshield, and back glass.

Lookin nice.

My dream builds are a 1980-86 Ford F100/150, regular cab shortbed twotone black on red, similar to my truck. Either a 300 i6 or 302/351w torquey enough to beat most stock cars off of the red light.
 
OR, a Corvette C3 with the early style notched tail(made until 73) and the urethane front(so most likely a 71-73). Then I want to build an aluminum Boss 302 to drop in, because I am crazy. Although I will never have the money to do this, and I will be murdered by a Corvette enthusiast before I started it anyway.
 
And as for 3000 GTs go, try driving in one first. My 60 something year old uncle has a worked VR4 that is scary fast, but I could never drive. Im 5'10'', 170 lbs and my head is in the sunvisor while riding shotgun.
