Just picked up this gem. I just want the frame off of it. It was a V8 mini truck. I got it home and had to get it off the trailer by myself so I put it on dollys and got it off. I got enough parts to actually put it into a rolling state. While I was doing it my smaller boys were busy getting into trouble. Here is were I found them. If you look at the last pic of the LUV you will see the trouble they were getting into, focus on the orange burban in the background-

WOW, I see a great foundation for a real fast truck.,. down the road bud.
You got a fine pair of boys there Fabian, they look like twins and I bet they'll fall in the same groove as pa, building cars and going fast, some day, nice.

This frame is just so I don't have to strip a truck to get to the frame. I'm going to do the frame the way I want and then transfer a truck body over on it, that way I don't have a truck sitting all apart while the frame is getting done. I got the pink so when I'm done I'll get it inspected and get a new vin so I have no troubles later. Yeah I got a few LUV trucks, there are not expensive, great parts gopher truck (go for this go for that) get 30 mpgs and people ask all the time what kind of truck is that never seen one before, or people are blown away and say you don't see these trucks anymore. The black on is a V8 truck. I'm going to get that one done before I even get started on this frame.

Cool pics! I bet you will have them boys doing doughnuts in the yard soon as they can see over the wheelSmile  
    I let my kids drive around the fields now and they love it!
 

  those lil luvs remind me of the one my grandpa had back in 1988 or so, It was a red super clean 1977 deluxe model fully loaded (for a luv)  I remember riding to school in it.  

It didnt last long cause my uncle crashed it by swiping it down a power pole. it was just the beater truck after that, you had to crawl out of the pass side to get in and out of it.
