    After finishing a rotisserie rebuild of my 1964 Plymouth Valiant I've had since I was 15, I've set my sites on a new project, a 1977 D100 longbed with a Slant Six and a four speed. I know a lot about Slants, but not a lot about trucks, so this will be a new adventure for me. Hopefully I don't mess the truck up too bad.

      Hello from Minnesota. Dude, you gotta show some pics of both. That's a less taken route with a truck, usually someone yamks that six and drops in a big block. Sounds like a fun build.

        Oh, hi! I didn't realize this actually made a post of my About Me. Sorry for not responding sooner. Here's what I'm starting with. I'll try to post updates as I go. It's rough, but it has potential to be a great daily driver with a touch of rat rod.

            I like having engines that work.
