James Yaws 1985 Dodge Truck

James has worked on his 1985 Dodge truck, in Neosho, MO for the past 4-5 years. During this time family, friends and even people he met at local auto stores have had a hand in helping him fix, push and pull his old truck. His truck has come a long ways from the farming days when it pulled the cows to auction. It has a built big block 440, built transmission with a 3500 stall torque converter, a high rise intake, a 509 Mopar cam with 248 degrees duration. It is very thirsty but he loves it.

James also owns a 2006 5.9 Cummins Turbo with a chip in it. He uses it for his work truck. He says, "It's a mean Mother Bear".

UPDATE: James bought a new 2011 three quarter ton 6.7 Cummins, but his 1985 440 Dodge Truck is still number one in his book.
