It started as a $45 rolling turd pulled from a scrap pile, motor turned over had some redneck compression, so i loaded it up. me and my 6 yr old son tore all the ugly shit off. He had an absolute blast and has helped a ton during the build, picked up a mustang tank at a garage sale, cut a little over 3 inches out of the middle and added a small tunnel. Continue Reading →
