Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound! The fire-truck red, painted by Dean’s Paint Place in American Fork, Utah, was selected because Chad wanted to be noticed. Mission accomplished, Chad! Most of us were shaking in giddy frivolity just looking at the glorious red paint, beefy axles, and massive rubber. Flying over Smallblockville, Kansas, the Chevy small-block has a Crane camshaft, an Edelbrock 600-cfm carb and intake, Hooker headers, a Flowmaster exhaust system, and MSD ignition. The engine is mated with the truck’s third Chevy TH350 tranny. According to Chad, the engine wears out the weaker transmission. Both Chevy 350s work in the dirt with the NP205 transfer case.
