Want to know how to make a cool Challenge car? Start with an Isuzu pickup. Then throw a GM V6 engine in the bed (The engine in question came from a Buick, hence Bu-Suzu). Then break out your trusty fender flare tool: a saw. Forum member crisd is following that recipe to create his race truck for the Grassroots Motorsports $2017 Challenge.

By the way, this build gets props for starting off with an artists rendition. Not sure if that counts against the Challenge budget, however.

I stole my 6 year old son's colored pencils to draw it... $2.99 at Olies :-)
