    Default Hello from Northern Arizona

    Greetings Y'all,

    I'm Bill from Prescott Arizona. I have a couple of "cool Rides".

    1950 Chevy truck named "The Fat Rat"
    It's John Deere Black with 2003 Mazda Laser Blue Mica flames that were pinstriped in orange last weekend. I'm running a GM Performance ZZ4 with 355 hp and 405 trq. 1978 Mustang II front suspension with GM rotors. 1978 Z28 Camaro rear end with 3:73 gears. TCI Streetfighter 350 is what shifts my gears either automatically or manually. I built it from junk yard parts. I have a 1985 Trans Am tilt steering. 1992 S-10 steering wheel, 2007 Ford Ranger 60/40 split bench with a fold down console. I have a chrome horn from a 1971 Honda CB750 and Harley Davidson tail lights. The list goes on so I'll stop here with the fat rat.






    Behind The Fat Rat I tow a 1961 15 foot Northwest Travel Coach (travel Trailer)

    This 1961 NORTHWEST Travel Coach came into the family when my wife's great grandparents got brand new in January of 1961. Christy's parents got it from Grandma Dot in the early 80's and used it for years for hunting/camping and even several trips to Mexico. This trailer has seen Canada, Mexico and both coasts of the USA. Christy & I got it in the late 90's. We have used it for camping & hunting. Then last year (2010), I got a hair brained idea to hook it up to our 1950 Chevy truck. I restored the trailer to somewhat match the truck. Since the truck is a fat fender'd rat rod it was named "The Fat Rat" and the trailer is now named "The Rat's Nest"

    50 years and 4 generations later the old trailer is still getting used on the weekends.

    My 1992 Dakota.

    My truck set up to include a high lift jack mounted in the bed, two jerry cans that mount behind the rear wheels for extra weight, adding traction. 700 watts of KC lighting for that little extra light at night. New limited slip out back and the truck is lifted to make room for bigger tires.




    Dodge with the trailer before I repainted it. This is the area where I hunt about an hour north of my house.




    This last picture was taken just outside of town in the spring of 2011. Yes it snows in Arizona. LOL
