Here is the story behind the 75 buck truck. The tranny went out in the buick , and my mother in law mentioned a friend of hers had a truck that a junk man was scheduled to pick up for 75 bucks. Well i had every intention of paying 75 bucks and selling it to the scrap yard for 300-400. But when i got to the owners house , he said it runs , but its pouring water everywhere. A shop quoted him 1200 bucks for head gaskets. So i decided to crank it up and see what this truck was all about. Come to find out it only needed a freeze plug!!! So i shut my mouth and gave the owner his 75 bucks in exchange for the title.
Now another "need to know" tidbit about this build is so far i haven't spent a dime on the install. Everything was aquired through multi item trades , or hand me downs from local buds after i had to sell off the buicks equipment. So its pretty friggin special if you think about it to have a vehicle that slams nicely and have under $150 invested in the entire project.
Heres a picture of it the day i bought it. (BTW , this isnt a before/after thing. I WILL NOT BE DOING ANY EXTERIOR UPGRADES BESIDES SOAP AND WATER! LOL)
So here is the current rundown on the equipment installed in this beast.
Headunit : eXcelon X592 w/80 gig ipod connected
Front Stage Amp : Audiopipe AP2004 (thanks Zade08)
Front Stage : Diamond Hex 6.5" Woofers , Midranges and Tweeters From A Decent HT Set (active)
Subwoofer Amp : First Gen Earthquake PH-D2 Modded For More Power And Lower Impeadance (Rated 1150 @ 4 , 2000 @ 2 , and said to do a little more at lower impeadances when modded)
Subwoofer : 1ST Gen PowerAcoustik MOFO 12" (Thanks Phatboi)
Enclosure : Home Built 1.85 CF @ 32Hz (Someone told me the truck is a redneck truck , so the white trashiness of the box is irony at its best. People look and laugh , then jaws drop when i spin the knob.)
Heres where the "use whats laying around mentality" came to me. The day i got it legal i realized i had no tunes , so i went rooting through all my stuff and came up with an iPod connected to this
And here they are installed
But the polks didnt last long and that passive just wasnt my style. So i pulled it all and went back to the drawing board.
ended up with this amp (thanks again Zade08)
And doors that look like this (thanks yet again Zade08)
And the A-pillars (i cant believe the imaging and SQ i get on some songs with these cheapo's) it will get a different treatment in the future but here they are now
