Well, I figure we've got a "projects" thread so we may as well have one for "toys" (although I suppose they could be one in the same). Anyway, I'll go first.....
1975 Scorpion Whip 440 snowmobile.....been enjoying that lately (when it runs). We need a little more snow though.
2004 Honda Foreman S......been enjoying that whenver I please. It also comes in handy to pull the snowmobile back to the shop. Usually used for farm work.
My brother has a 1990something Yamaha Exiter II 570 snowmobile that is out here at "the farm".....hopefully will be running soon....
I would just like to say......2 strokes are my weak point.......
What's everyone got?

I actually don't have a "toy" right now. I'm looking at getting a 66-67 fairlane sometime in the future. I'd like to build something subtle, yet monstrous. You know, a nitroused 427, but muffled like crazy. just a little something to eat the rice grinders...
I have a 2005 Sportster 883 Custom that's my main form of transportation in the summertime. The wife has a 2006 sporty. Had a 1969 Falcon 2 door sedan with a warmed over 351C and C4 auto I sold awhile back to get a 1939 Ford Tudor Sedan. Finished up the chassis on the Tudor and sold it to get the house we are in now. Also sold a lot of the parts I was going to put in it, all that's left is a 460, Lakewood steel bellhousing and toploader. I hope to find a cheap project to put it in someday, like a late 60's mustang, 66-67 Fairlane, or another falcon.
Almost forgot, the wife had a 1965 Falcon 2 door sedan also, "Nora" was her name. She was a nice little car, had a 200 six with 3 speed I put on the floor. Fun little ride also
I just joined the forum here a week ago or so. Just saying hi I guess. My "toy" is my 1995 Mustang GTS. I purchased my truck so I can actually go somewhere this winter. The "moo-moo" (mustang) has only 23000 miles on it.
Hey NEBFRD, welcome to the forum! I guess I forgot my two toys (I actually own them with my three older brothers). They are a '68 Mustang coupe, 302 auto, and a 1939 Ford coupe deluxe, that has been totally restored. There, now I feel better!
Hey, when you get a chance, post up a few pics of your truck and toy in your gallery. Let us know if you need any help with that!

That mustang is sweeeeet!! I had a 1995 Mustang GT 5.0 5 speed without a flaw, I had to sell it because I only drove it about once or twice a month when it was nice out, I didnt even attempt driving in the snow with it. Those are awsome cars but it didnt pull my race car to the track....man do I miss that car now....your car is wayyy faster than what mine was though....thats a neat ride!
hmm. toys well I have my 90 Lincoln LSC SC, fully balance and blueprinted 302 bored .030, with lots of goodies, and a vortech A trim, would like a bigger blower, but 9.9:1 compression already is a little high, and a "manumatic" Art Carr full manual aod, 366/365 at the rear wheels, and
my 89 cherokee, 8pt cage, custom front/rear bumpers, and soon to have rockwells and 42" TSL's warn M8000 winch,
also the real toy is my Tmaxx, with a full roll cage. just no room to run it around here.
