No Bueno IDIs

I've noticed this forum is pretty quiet these days. I suppose somewhat due to the newest IDI being 24 years old now there's only a handful of us that are masochists enough to keep at it.
This record breaking winter is probably going to put a few more in their graves too I suppose.

Maby. Or...not:

Got her stuck, pulled her out with a tractor and she keeps on trucking.

I've also noticed that the IDI forum doesn't seem as active as some of the other forums on our site.

I still plan on driving my '88 E250 for another 200K miles. I even have plans for body work and paint this spring/summer.

I already have parts collected for installing the Banks turbo kit I got from Genscripter as well.

Just waiting for the temps to warm up since the van is too tall for the garage.

With all the work/$$ I am putting into the van, when the engine finally goes I may just rebuild it and keep trucking fof another 400-500k miles.

When we thought my wifes mini-van may have been totaled, I was looking around for an IDI for my 16yr who will have his license in a few months. Figured I could get him hooked. Didn't work out though.

Maybe they are all running so good only a few problems are popping up. Naw that was a silly thought there always minor things and mods to do. Since mine became a work truck pretty much just fix what I have to

My 86 F250 6.9 is still running great. The rest of the truck less so. Rust, electrical gremlins,heater leaks, AC clutch shot, HVAC control doors stuck or broken, radio is dead, wiper system is on welfare.


Maybe I need to yank the truck off the frame put a different body on it. Maybe a 71 Chevy body, just to **** off EVERYONE at once! (Those Dodge boys don't count any way. )

Mine's mothballed for the next four weeks; the collector license plate doesn't allow me to drive it in January. Still chasing down a pesky air intrusion problem, and the weather isn't exactly co-operating.....

I let my 73 internation sit for 6 months without starting. Put the charger on it and fired up beautifully. My crewcab I just started driving runs awsome in the cold always starts. Far cry when I first got it and someone called the fire deparment because they thought my house was on fire it was smoking so bad. I just want a bunch of snow so I can try my winch out.

I find I am just too busy to frequent the forum, but I do check in once and a while. I think quite a few people have migrated to the facebook pages, nothing wrong with that I guess.

We got our first shot of winter so the truck has been busy lately. The old beast is unstoppable in the snow, I love it!

It seems forums in general are dying. I dont do social media but i keep hearing facebook is partly to blame. Photobucket doing what they did did not help forums either.

My problem with facebook is I like to talk and befriend people I actually know ot have a common interest with, not people that are a friend of a friend of a friend that some person blindly accepted a friend request.

Guess us old dinosaurs that drive relics will continue to live here
