Looks like a fun project to get started on, I love those '78-'79 trucks. I am also not a stranger to doing some body work.

Awesome, I've got a 73 f100 with the 390 I'm working on. I love these old fords they just on going and going and going. 110 is pretty good also ;)

Yea, Ive only ever been on the west side in the rockies. But it is awesome. Me and my dad have been talking about an expedition trip that we are going to do together into the yukon or to Alaska. It will happen at some point, I just have to have the right vehicle

felt a bit of motivation today so i hauled the truck in the garage. all i got done was hauled the bed off her. need to get another one for her because this one is far beyond repair. heres a few pics of her.
