I missed the message that I got approved with the holiday, and all that other jazz going on in this thing called life.
anyhow... here's the long and the short of it.... I've had 3 95 f150 ext cab, short beds, all 4x4, all 351s plus a 2wd 89 for a brief time, and a 92 bronco with a 302 way back when. I'm a HUGE fan of the 92-96 style trucks. My current one is a Black XLT (i'll never buy a black vehicle again) with around 145k on it. it's my daily.
One of these years, I'd love to get a Supercab or Crewcab Dent side.
in between postings on the internet, I happen to work for a manufacturer of restoration soft interior goods for mainly classic and antique cars outside of the Hershey area. It's a neat job, I get to work with car people, sell car stuff, go to car shows, and for the last few weeks get PAID to visit junkyards to search out old cars and parts that we use for patterns.
This is my CURRENT 95 F150...This is actually my 3rd truck spec'd this way... 95 F150, extended cab, short bed, 5.8L, auto, 4x4. I picked it up in the spring, after selling my Rover. It needs a little love and attention, but is still in pretty good shape... I wouldn't mind lifting it and a few other things. Just got finished swapping in a new rear end last week.
This was my FIRST 95 F150. I still regret selling it. 4" suspension / 2" body lift. 15x10 American Racing Wheels, 35x12.50s, custom bent cat back duals, all original paint (Sapphire Blue & Light Opal), upgraded audio
This was my SECOND 95 f150... a 95 Eddie Bauer. It ended up in Ohio, i think.
then prior to the trucks... I had a 92 Bronco. I think I had the top held on with about 5 bolts, so I could take it off quickly
And then this is my baby... I've had it for around 25 years... picked it up as my first car, and have redone it twice now. this time it was pretty much a top to bottom, inside and out redo.
