Seeking Out A Small Block Chevy 350 Motor Reveals More In Eastern Carolina

Some days when you are on a mission to find a certain part of piece that you need for a build, too much hops in your path and you just have to scratch your head and consistently think on, why those items didn't cross your path before. Par exampla, rolled over to the coast today to link up with Mopar Rob to go and check out a lead on a 350 Small Block Chevy Motor and while waiting for our contact to show up at his shop we found all kinds of randomness. A 1950 Chevy 3100 truck that was being sold for 20k. Could easily see close to 10k but the rust spots and melted parts of dash were not a good sign. Then we happen to roll by a late 50's Chevy 4 x 4 longbed truck which was perfect for a shop truck, gotta check back in on that one. Also cruised by a shop called Combat Cycles which had quite a few builds out front but some just seemed to be a parts depot, compared to really though out for a killer ride.
