The Ghost-Rider/Ghost Runner
History, this one was bought off the showroom floor in 1985 by one of my best friends, it has slowly evolved by his hands and my advice in to a very capable little sleeper rig. Has more upgrades than I can remember but I will slowly add more information as I remember what we have done to it. Sadly my buddy passed away in 2016 but in a very generous act his wife and son gifted me the truck since I spent the last 6 years getting him out and about as much as humanly possible. So goes the nickname of Ghost-Rider/Ghost Runner since he will always be there with me when I take out his truck... funny I still call it his truck!
