Picked up my first car last year when i was 16 over the summer. 1994 SS s10 173k.. ever since its been a project but ive never posted about it on here. so here ya go.

first time i saw the truck



when i purchased the truck it did not run. we had to pull it home. looked a "little" rough













since it was summer and i had nothing to do.. i decided to sand it



not to long after that we took it to the shop where my uncle works. it sat there for 3 months. the engine and tranny all came out

here it sat for like a month not being touched



time to get to work












while the truck sat at the shop, parts were piling up in the garage



finally getting put back together





and out of the shop!!



got new wheels








did i mention daily?

:D



i had to completely redo the whole suspension on the truck. the guy before me cut the coils up front and heated the springs in the rear.

here is almost everything besides the notch and 3 inch leafs.. i have belltech shocks now.. not the ones in the picture







see the difference.. right and wrong



5/4 drop done





it snowed a little after the drop and did it suck




i didnt get an alignment and here were my tires.



i had to roll around in my stocks for a little bit



i figured nothing was gonna get done if i drove it every day so me and my uncle got to work on it.. sat at his house for almost 2 months















i then put my cragars on there



got striped



then notched for the 5/7



5/7 drop with 17's







what do you guys think.. plans are getting it bagged next year.. i turn 18 next month so ill be able to get a good job with good pay

haha that thing is awesome.
come a long way thats for sure.

other than the green drums and calipers it looks damn sweet (black would look better in my opinion... takes focus off the drums and puts it back on those nice cragars)

Looks pretty nice man! Is this still your daily? 5/7 drop must be intense if it is lol.

What all did you have done to the engine/tranny?

In the picture of you cutting your notch. What's the deal with your leaf springs in the back? Nice truck for sure though.

i dont know exactly, my uncle did it all at the shop he works at.. only things i really know of is replacing engine mounts, brakes and fuel injector.. bill came up to 1800 .. and he only charged me for parts.. not labor!
