Truck of the Month July 2013

Sorry for the delay in the announcement.....

The July 2013 Truck of the Month goes to... ROLLING THUNDER - Congrats!!

Here's a pic of ROLLING THUNDER's truck!

Here is R/T's write up this month......

Here I go again. I am now in my third childhood. How many seventy year old folks do you know who are into hot rods. My old slow truck can’t keep up with the group on the track anymore, (Can’t go any better than 12.023 in the mile), wait, is it the truck or is it me) so, anyway, I decided to dress the old gal up a bit.

Let me introduce you all to Rolling Thunder III.
First a few background words for those of you who never met Rolling Thunder I or II.
Rolling Thunder I started life as a stock 2004 with a Hemi. Most of the mod’s were cosmetic, and the only performance mod was a Superchip and a Flowmaster.
Rolling Thunder II started life as a stock 2007. It was decided that all this modification was just a waste of money and the truck would remain stock. Well, it did for a while and the mod’ bug jumped out and bit me. First it was exhaust, then some vinyl stripes and then the race was on. I could not stop. After many performance and cosmetic dollars were spent, I had no where to go. Hence RT # III.
Rolling Thunder III is a complete re-do of TR # II. I decided to spice things up a bit, add a little color to the mix. I say a little but, actually the truck is now six colored, (red, black,silver, grey,copper and pink) and as we speak, the finishing touches are being made on a new 440 Six Pack along with a EL180 tranny that will help us go a little faster.
