f-150 2wd that I never use. This is the only one that I didn't build, it is a low mile original truck (the only thing I did was paint it the original color, the original paint was faded) that I can't bring myself to sell so it sits in storage.
I got another offroad bronco that I am building but don't have any pics.
I also have a 48 f-1 that I am restoreing and an additional complete 48 f-1 that is a parts truck.
here is a pic of my old 76 f-150 that sold after I built the orange 79 f-350.....oh I built the trailer too.
Welcome JPB222, love the trucks. Always wanted to take an ol F series like that(or even an old champ) and put an IH IDI diesel in it!!!!
Thats the one in Hazelton? I'm lucky enough to be friends with the owners of the property next to there. I got to go 4 wheelen there last year. Right now the guy who was leasing the land is suing the owner for breach of contract. He only terminated the lease early because they were attempting to build an airport, but that fell through. Hopefully he'll win and get the park back up.
I am glad that an offroad park opened on my side of the state. Unfortunatly I have not wheeled there yet due to my band having shows every weekend and that taking up all my free time.
I did help clear trails at the new park and there is some great terrain there and a lot of potential.
I was actually quite close to putting a 4BT cummins in the green truck when I was building it. A friend had one out of a bread truck, but I decided to go with a gas engine since gas has been cheaper. I am glad that I did cause the truck gets 26 MPG with the little 6.
They sure would look good parked with the Mid-Atlantic Ford Truck Club-FTE in Carlisle this August. It would do the chapter proud to have one of it's members win one of the trophy's. Thanks to the efforts of glruff (George) of the Delaware chapter and now our resident moderator, FTE took third place for club participation our first time out in "08" and Pennsylvania received first place for chapter participation. I may enter one of mine for the worst POS that actually drives. You guys can start signing up your buddies and other members from your area. It's a great time you shouldn't miss.
Took a lot of nights working in the driveway to build them as well as lots of busted knuckles and lost blood.. I am yet to buy a vehicle that is in running driving shape
Being 6 foot 8 inches tall prohibits me from beeing able to fit in any newer cars or trucks (they keep making lower and lower roofs and slopeing the sides in more and more) so I will be runnin old fords for the rest of my life.
As long as it is your rig and you did the majority of the work on it, it makes no diff whether it is "show quality" or not. It is the pride we take in bulding it ourselves rather than paying someone to do it for us. I am like old Norm on the tv show Cheers who did his work not on how much money it cost, rather how many beers he drank doing it. Just dont drink and drive.
