Yeah I just watched that. It will probably be Edelbrocked out. But we'll see.

Anybody watching? This should be interesting, they are building a '79 Bronco with a 460 and C6 trans. It's and old Bronco they dragged out of a field and going to do what they call "A Bronco on the cheap"! Let's see if they screw this up :lol:
What are you douing watching TV , when you should be in the garage, finishing that car !! :roll: :p :wink:

Man, I'm sorry I missed this. I would like to see how they screw up a bad *** truck like that, and gvos is right- it will undoubtedly be hooked up w/ all the coolest Edelbrock parts :roll:

He actually did a descent job on the early Bronco he did though- except the paint job. I always wanted them to do up a "real" Bronco. :D

I can see it now, they'll rebuild it with a later model retarded timing chain, unported D3's and bitch about how it's hard to make horse power with a bbf.

I hope not, but we'll see.

I guess we should feel lucky they're not just slapping a SBC in it like they did with the early 50's truck they just did.

I was watching it yesterday and made the girlfriend suffer through it. Turned it on midway through and saw just the frame. Told her it looked like a '78-'79 Bronco frame so we had to watch. She just couldn't understand how I knew what it was and thought it was funny when I was talking to the TV criticising about how they'll surely screw it up, and then the echo of me saying something and the dude on TV saying the same thing. :lol: Hopefully they don't screw it up too bad.

:lol: like the car craft build? every GM fanboy ford basher uses that as an arguement in the ford vs chevy discussion.

it seems like they screw them up on purpose.

Were they painting the frame and everything too? Doing a total body off frame?
When I tuned into the show they were allready into the build. Body off.. They were'nt doing anything with the frame, Still all rusty, but get this they were putting a lift kit on it and big *** 44" tires!! SO I'm not sure if they painted it or not??? When I saw that crap going on I had to turn it!! Started watching "How's it made" Neat show!!

cheers

Damnit! I thought it was coming on at 10. I had to work graveyard shift last night, so I got home at 8 and was gonna stay up and watch it, but when it didn't come on at 10 I had to go to sleep.

Oh well- stupid night shift...

78-79 Bronco

If it was the yellow bronco, it looked like 35" tires and they said they were going to do some 'old school tricks' with the heads and engine. I guess we'll see next week. Also this is two new guys doing the show now that Stacy guy is gone !
