    i drove a bran new 389 for a little while around 2012 right off the showroom floor i was never that impressed with that truck, i thought the 379 was a nicer truck. id take my 359 over a 379 or 389 any day

    You should.. I've watched you build that 359 time & time again...
    The last 359 I bought the pervious owner said the exact same words as you when I was getting ready to leave his driveway

    two things that are almost never copied and make it really easy to spot are the air cleaner elbows vrs straight into the cowl on the later trucks and the tow hooks. let alone you can spot a 389 grill from a mile away. most these drivers don't even know what there actually trying to copy anyway they just think it looks cool and don't even know what a 359 is.

    thanks, been a lot of work a lot of hours but man its a pleasure to drive.
