Another Scrounger, Evan Yopp is down.

Post by Reb Stew on September 16th 2013, 5:02 pm

 One of our Prospects from Kentucky, Evan and a friend were test driving Evan's truck and making sure it was ready for the Rumble. They are both alive, despite a few injuries, it could have been much worse.  This was Evans truck for 15 years. Keep everyone in your prayers please. 




Evan if you need anything let us know.

Thanks everybody. Jeff is still pretty sore, and I'm a little more sore than yesterday. But for what we went through, we cant complain. The good Lord was sure lookIng out for us!

A hung throttle resulted in a sideways slide at about 60mph into an embankment. The rapid acceleration does confirm that we finally did get the timing where we wanted it...

And Jeff is a trooper. He was out cold when we landed, and halfway out of rhe truck. Five minutes later he was hooking chains to my wifes truck to pull it out. An hour later, after floor jacks, redneck 4x4 action, and manual labor, his wife found out and made him go to the hospital! Prioritized like a real car guy!

By the way, this all went down 200 foot from my garage.

Glad to hear you all are ok. This is never good news to get. Hope you heal quickly. Keep us posted. They say most accidents happen within a mile of your house... Keep your spirits up and let me know if I can do anything.

Thank y'all. Ive traded for a 53 GMC, not sure that many of the parts will help, but it is a frame donor if my frame cant be straightened. I'll be picking it up Monday if all goes well. The same guy has a 54 3/4 Ton for parts, and im going to try to buy the doghouse off of it. Next weeks plan is to start pulling the body off and figuring out what to do with the frame.

Are you stuck on using a stock frame? I did that 54 of mine on a Dakota frame. It worked out nice. I like it better than the s10 swaps I have seen.
