The Story

Ive always been into drifting the slowest cars i could get my hands on growing, and what looks cooler than longbed minitruck goin sideways!?!? I purchased this beater from an older man who wasnt using the truck for work anymore. It needed lots of work when I picked it up, but I knew that was the perfect excuse to replace every failed part with something much better. I'm a huge money concious person who does all his own work on the cheap. Im a minimum wage lube tech here in Reno NV so everything that you see, and will see moving forward is Ebay and RockAuto thrown at this old mini truck. Enjoy the build! I try to update this regularly...
