'Good' old fashioned hard work

I friend of mine and a member of the MoonShiners Car Club with me and has been working his ass off on his new project. A wild and interesting hot rod truck...

The truck he started with is a 1935 international. Built mainly as heavy duty farm vehicles, international trucks seemed to survive in greater numbers then their Ford and Chevy counterparts. Notoriety may have something to do with it, but no can deny that stock or custom, they cool trucks.

This is what the truck would have looked like rolling out of a dealership.
Heres the truck he started with. I had to hijack this photo from his Facebook page.

Travis Good a.k.a. "Goodlum", the man behind the truck in the works, is a talented dude. He had a vision for what he wanted, and its coming along nicely. Bare in mind he is in the middle of a mock up before he paints the frame. I will be sure to update when he has it completed.
 Travis did full air bag suspension, 
allowing him to drop this truck all the way down (literally) to the ground

1963 390c.i. Cadillac V8 will move this little truck down the road.
factory 325 horsepower
I'll bet that its going to do some serious burn outs.

Travis is going to keep the full fendered look,
as well as the hood and grill, giving the truck a low sleek look.
Large whitewall tires on steely wheels will keep with that vibe.
too me the truck screams, "you don't want to run into me in a dark alley"

 the chop he did is perfect!

The Goodlum himself. Like the title of this post, he is a hard working dude,
remember than he is doing all this himself. like a real American. 

and of course... he's rocking 307 Warbird sticker on his welding helmet.

Like I said, this is going to be one bad MoF'er when its done and Ill be sure to blog about it!
