    New guy from South Dakota

    Hey there evrybody. New to the site but not new to the car/truck game. Im from Sioux Falls, Sd and am picking up a sweet little 1979 D-50 from my dad in the next week or so. Its the black and orange paint scheme that was the sport model. Not much if any rust and a 2.6 with a 5 speed. She will need a little love but it should be a great dd/project for me.

    I currently have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 lifted 7 inches and 37s on her, a 2011 Mitsubishi Evolution GSR slammed on some 18x10.5s with 285/30-18s and a 2009 Kawasaki ZX-14 Monster Edition Bike.

    Plans for the d will be to get her mechanically sound and then possibly switch over to fuel injection from a starion/conquest and turbo it.

    If you are going to turbo it, I would go megasquirt instead - it gives you a tunable system that is multiport, verses the starquest system which is a 2 stage tbi setup prone to problems. Welcome to the site - we need pics when you get it.

    bringing this back from the dead. Finally getting going on this project truck. A little more rust than I could see from the outside. Removed the carpet and there are a couple smaller hole in the floor of the cab. Going to weld some pieces from a donor floor into this one and get some newer interior for her. Need to get it going very soon as I just sold my 01 dodge ram so this being without a pickup sucks.
