Old Smokey in Diesel Power Magazine

This was shot earlier in Smokeys build during TPD's dyno day. They managed to call it a chevy even though it says FORD all over the truck.

War Machine

My new toy, a 1991 BMY Harsco M931A2 6x6 Truck. Its powered by an 8.3 litre Cummins 6CTA Turbodiesel engine (we turned it up a few notches already) The government was nice enough to spend $86,000 completely rebuilding it before selling it to me with only 554 miles on it. Thanks Guys!
It will be getting a mobile command center body, MRAP seats, Mrap wheels, 53" Michelins will replace the little 49 inchers, and full RV treatment on the interior. Exterior will stay all business. This monster runs on Diesel, ATF, used oil, Kerosene, Jet fuel, Biodiesel, Fryer oil and more. Almost like free fuel. Wheeeee! 

Old Smokey

Old Smokey will be the new Chuckles Garage shop truck. I'm taking a different approach with this one as I have past personal builds. This truck will be a sort of "no rules/boundaries build. It will be powered by a built P-pumped 5.9l Cummins 12 valve turbodiesel with approximately 800hp and 1600ft lbs of torque. The motor and transmission are being built by our neighbors Total Performance Diesel. Suspension is full tubular a-arms up front, and an adjustable 4-link with watts link out back with Aldan adjustable coilovers at all corners. Will be set up with full road race geometry. Weight distribution will be an even 50/50 split with the engine sunk back halfway past the firewall. Old Smokey will have a full DOM cage and Kirkey full containment roadrace seats. Wheels are 17x9.5 with 255/40/17 and 275/40/17's. More details to follow.....

1930 Ford Tudor

This is a Nailhead powered hotrod I did for a local customer, apart from a faulty fuel pump and battery....he's been driving the crap out of it! Look for it in the upcoming issue of Gasoline Magazine. Paint and body by my homie Brandon at Eastbay Speed and Custom.

Meet Carl Jr.

I just finshed this 1965 Calumet coach for my good friends at Three Twins Ice Cream in Petaluma CA. Its powered by a 5.9 liter Cummins turbodiesel and is pretty much awesome.
