What wheels do you own?

I'm curious to know what cars/trucks you have as drivers, extras or project vehicles.

Around here you'll find these drivers: '48 F1, 88 F250 4x4, 96 Jeep cherokee 4x4.

Projects: 73 F100 4x4, 77 F150 4x2, 86 F150 4x4,

My college-age sons living at home - oldest has a 92 S10 4x2, and the youngest has a 70 'stang fastback in pieces, and a 97 Dodge 2500 4x4 Cummins

Matt, I've gotta know - is the 69 'stang in your gallery your's? That's one sweet car! Another of my all-time favorites is a 70 Torino GT!

So what do you guys drive/work on?

Everything I have is in my sig, except for my 2000 Kawasaki Vulcan.

My plans are to restore the Mustang after I've completed my truck... hopefully within the next year!

02 F-150 in my sig....Toreador Red and Arizona beige...it also has tinted windows

matt if you call my friend shawn, you know the number, he has that 67 sitting next to the garage, that car was in mustang monthly just a few short years ago , well maybe a dozen years ago, his dad has a 65 conv too that was in the same mag, i bet you could get it cheap as he has no idea which end of a torque wrench is. he just drove it, never much worked on it, i was surprised he knew how to get gas in it..

Well two rangers in my signature are mine, mine, mine. The explorer is my parent's and i get to use it here and there. I try to take care of it.

The '79 is my new project truck and my friend is helping me rebuild a 351W to drop in it. The truck as a whole doesn't need a lot of work to fix it up. It sat in a shed for the last 18 years, until last december.

The 91 was my first vehicle, and i still drive it. It's been a fun truck. Been camping numerous times, and lots of baja'n. It's only a 2.9, but it gets me from A to B and a little boggin in between. I'm considering upgrading soon.

I don't really drive the explorer much. It's my parent's, but i figured i'd mention it.

I also own a 98 chevy lumina. It's got 15k on the clock, and I use it to drive to work.(Most of my truck wouldn't quite grace the parking lot with their presence yet, although the 79 will soon.

What I have...

1984 F-150 4x4 300-6 4 spd 3:55 gears LT30x9.50R15 298,000 miles (all original to my knowledge), grn w/ white mid-stripe, stock (?) bolt-on grill guard, bug shield (missing a piece and some screws), sun visor (needs re-painted and new bolts), headache rack/tool box (given to me from a friend for free)....paid $210 for it, put a max of another 3-400 into it in a year and a half...

I want to slap a straight axle front end under it out of a 78/79 4x4, so I have a stouter front end for beatin around the woods....

What I Want to Build:

80-86 F-250 4x4 Dana 60's front and rear, uncertain on gearing or tire size yet, possibly 3.73's w/ 33" traction tires, 87-97-ish F-250 ZF 5 spd, 300-6 bored slightly, zero-decked, mild port and polish on the head, holley 390 4bbl carb and matching intake, EFI split exhaust manifolds running into true dual 2 1/4" pipes into a pair of 40 series flows with turn-downs just ahead of the rear axle....

the F-250 is something i'd like to give a whirl, but it'll probably take a good bit of time and money before i get there....i'm hoping to be able to jump my horsepower on that 300-6 from a stock HP of about 125, to about 180, give or take some ponies...

Michael

'89 F-250HD, 460, C6, BW13-56, 10.25" back, D44 front, 4.10's.
That's right, gas be 1.75 a gallon, and I get 6 in town, 8 at MT freeway speeds. I am a poor man.
