There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

That is a very interesting vehicle Jabber. The paint is typical 70's "blaaahh", but everything else is pretty cool.

Theres a lot going on with that truck. I would like to hear/see it run down the hiway with the Detroit and the brownlite. Would be a cool ride if done right. otherwise the Detroit may just shake the old Ford to pieces.
Started with nothing and still have most of it left.

At least that Detroit isn't stuffed in there so tight that you can't get to anything. I learned to drive a truck in an old Diamond Reo 8 yard mixer. It took me a few days to really get used to the Brownie box. How many people nowadays know how to shift 2 sticks? I had a friend who owned a Ford truck that was built by a Ford engineer that had a Cat engine and 13 speed Roadranger trans. You would get funny looks from people when you pull up someplace and set the air-actuated parking brake.

That's tight. If it wasn't a Ford, I'd have to own it. Screaming Jimmys are the best.

I think that's a 4-53N (71 would be too tall to fit under a stock hood) with Jakes installed.

The advice I was given about driving a Jimmy diesel was slam your fingers in the door before you start moving, so you're already pissed off at it and ready to bang the sticks like the owe you money.

I wonder if you can hear yourself think, at 75mph?

That is different and cool.  Done right it would be slick.
That scalloped box end is one of the few BB features that doesn't make Elroy puke
