If you're anxious to get to the starting line, buying an already-built truck is the way to go. You can perform upgrades later on. Be careful: You might end up re-building everything if the truck wasn't built correctly in the first place. Matt Towery was fortunate to purchase one of two F-100s originally built for Frank "Scoop" Vessels: a solid build that was worthy of upgrades. This photo was taken at the '04 MDR 400. Matt later sold this truck and commissioned C&D Fabworks to build a Class 8 F-150 from the ground up.
