             Ken adds a 1955 First Series GMC COE Bookmobile and says the '54 GMC COE is progressing --hopes to have the cab back on the frame in the next 6-8 weeks.

October 2000 Update

From Ken:

            Well, I spoke to Clyde Moslander of Moslander's Rod & Custom, today. I was fortunate enough to receive good news... they got my cab, fenders and doors back from the having them "plastic blasted" and apparently there is very little rust in the truck. Very good news! Clyde did mention that they have already begun prepping the cab, doors and fenders to for body work. At this rate it is very possible the my truck may very well be featured at this years Seattle Roadster Show.

            Lastly, I now have the completed CHEVY BIG BLOCK 502cu with 540hp (Dyno Certified) sitting in my basement. I hate to say this but I believe it has already contemplating its first Ford notch on its new ceramic coated headers. I'll be sending out a few pictures of Big Red's progress in the next week or so.

            Well, my '54 GMC (C.O.E.) Car Carrier is coming along. I dyno'd the motor last Thursday - 502hp at 5400rpm - 593ft lbs of torque at 3900rpm - 570ft lbs of torque at 2900 rpm. 1985 Chevy dually 502cu turbo 400 power windows. (I am looking for a good 1954 GMC COE cab and other parts.)
