History
Bought in 1997 to keep miles off my 1995 x-cab delivering pizza. Had a 2.8L V6 that was blown up when I bought it and front clip and engine in pieces. Put an Autozone engine in it at that time and later added a 4bbl Holley, added V6 Cavalier e fan and that ran until 2009ish when it was parked while attending college (for the 3rd time) when the freeze plugs rotted out of the block.

Truck was becoming a serious piece of junk and a yard ornament. Fix it or junk it.

Put 3.4L V6 crate engine in its place and basically replaced every single thing under the hood and refreshed the interior. Converted to serpentine accessories at that time too. Roasted the dash wiring harness and pulled dash and replaced it! Fiero valve covers. Added autolift hood struts. Converted to EFI with 4.3 TBI unit on bored stock intake in 2013. Edelbrock headers. Runs like a 305. Blazer bumper on the rear. Lifted 2" with Rough Country lift in 2018. Full custom exhaust from the headers back into a 1/2 Flowmaster in 2019. Sounds great! Rust free Alabama truck. 300k total miles. Needs paint severely.

Reminds me of Marty Mcfly ?
Good. To be perfectly honest that’s the look I’m going for. Once painted it’ll have some great 80’s graphics too.

Awesome. Nice truck
Thanks man. I’ve had it an awfully long time. Solid. Just needs paint and find that water in the floorboard leak.
