It's to bad I can't enter my own. My son rolled it yesterday after I spent all summer fixing and painting it from a roll over I did last winter. It's a 90 Ranger and still runs and drives true. But really looks bad like totaled. Had all new glass in it till yesterday. I aint fixing the body again. Just a ranch rig now.

Almost $500.00 in glass gone in sixty seconds. Sheard one rear axle plumb off. Lit upside down on a rock the size of a Kenworth Cab. Missed the roll bar and smashed in the roof where the dome light is. Needless to say the new back slider did not make it. Still rubbing Ben-Gay on the boy. He is hurting but alive and not broken. THAT is the main thing right there. It's dark out right now. I'll take some pics tomorrow if I get back from town and have any gumption left.

Kids 12 years. Was with his 17 year old Bud. Kid was driving and 17 year old was telling him how to drift. They just picked the wrong worst loosest corner to do it on. It will be awhile before he gets to use a rig again I think.

81 Ford Courier, paint peeling everywhere, uses about a gallon of oil per tank, front fenders are rotted off on the rear edge, doors don't close right, windshield has 11 chips and two cracks, overheats, and the front tires rub since they are way too big. I also just drove it 900miles with about 1500lbs in the back and still use it as a daily driver, it got 28mpg on the trip and gets mid to high 20s in town.

And since it qualifies under your rules:

Just got this yesterday, it's a mid 50s David Bradley Super Power tractor. No engine, obviously one tire is gone, the rims are rotted to death, and i don't have any implements for it. Looks cool though.

It's ok, it's not for sale. It's getting about 9" of lift, a D44 front from a Wagoneer, a Toyota rear axle, and a Mercedes OM617.951 turbodiesel. I've got an adapter to put that engine in front of any transmission that fits a Ford small block pattern.
