OK - 50 yrs on this planet. In that time, ford I own(ed):
'67 British Ford 105E - first car, gone (Harry Potter movie car)
'73 Merc wagon w/460 - gone
'71 Mach 1 - still have since college
'79 F100 2wd stepside - still have, for sale! good project truck, fast!
'59 British Ford 100E Anglia - still have, working on restoration
'59 British Ford 100E Escort Wagon - Still have, next in line to match the pair
2000 Excursion - my daily driver/farm truck
More importantly, between my rigs & bikes, my wifes rigs, our tractors (3) and the D4 dozer, we have 105 cylinders of engine! That's a lot of oil and spark plugs! (there are other brands in the mix of course - (no counting mowers or weed wackers, please!)
Hah!

1. 78 F150, 2WD, 351M, C6. At 260K, I Converted to 460 with dual pipes. Pass anything but a gas station. Truck nickle and dimed me to death so I sold her. She's my first true love and I'd buy her back in a heartbeat if I could find her.
2. 92 Mustang LX, 4 cyl, 5 speed, no ac. First new car. Finally sold it year before last with over 200K miles.
3. 93 Ranger XLT, 3.0L V6, AOD, X-Cab. Paid $1000 for it because it had over 200K miles on it. Rebuilt the tranny and drove it another 70K before someone in a van decided to drive over my engine. Got $7500 for it after it was totaled
4. 86 Bronco EB Edition. 6" lift 35x12.5x15 BFG MT (pre KM). 351W, AOD, LOVED to beat the **** out of this rig. MUCH FUN!!! Traded it for a jeep.
5. 95 Explorer EB Edition - 4.0L, AOD 4x4. Grocery Getter. Nice ride but, fell apart after a short couple of years owning it.
6. 97 Expedition EB Edition - 5.4L, AOD Power EVERYTHING. Super Fancy stuff for me and my X.
7. 98 F150 X-Cab 4x4 - 4.6L, 5 speed. LOVED this truck but, traded it for...
8. 01 F350 Lariat PSD, CC, SB, 4x4. Truck lasted < 2 weeks. Damn deadbeat dealership selling me a lemon.
9. 71 Bronco - Drove to Denver CO to pick up this rig. Sold it to a buddy of mine for what I had in it. He still has it.
10. 69 Ford Bronco - Bought a rust bucket to salvage good parts. Sold the rest. Trashed what needed to be trashed.
11. 73 Bronco - OLD YELLER. Original NM Bronco was virtually rust free. Took it apart to do a frame off restore. Funds fell short and so did my X wifes patience. Ended up selling it off in parts. VERY SAD!!!
12. 71 Bronco - BIG RED. Some of you may remember seeing pictures of this rig. Bought it in Portland OR from a mechanic who told me I'd be able to drive it home (To NM). Rig lasted 30 minutes and had NO BRAKES. So, I trailered it home to find out the engine was also blown. Buyer beware...
13. 84 Bronco. Parts donor for my new 71 POS Bronco. Took the 351W and had Buddlongs build a SICK 300+ HP beast. Sold the rest.
14. 72 Bronco - ROLLED YELLER. Picked up from a buddy of mine who rolled his BEAUTIFUL Yellow Bronco. He had LOTS of work already done to her. But, the body was a complete total. So, I pulled it apart. Kept what I wanted for my 71 and parted out the rest.
15. 99 Ranger - 4.0L, AOD, X Cab 4x4. Just wanted something to drive to work and back. This truck had a strange life on it so didn't drive very nice. Sold it to X's cousin.
16. 05 F150 Lariat. CC, 4x4. I LOVED this truck. But, traded it for my current rig.
17. 08 F350 PSD, CC, FX4. This is the rig in my pics.
18. 69 Bronco - Project rig I traded for # 19.
19. 72 Bronco - 302/3ott/D20/D44/9".
20. 94 Ford F250 X Cab 4x4. 5.8L V8 / ZF 5 speed tranny to be donated to the [b]72 Bronco project.
21. 73 Bronco - I picked up in San Diego as my BEACH CRUISER. Just SOLD it.
22. 04 Mustang Convertible - Traded for #25. Gets 22MPG and it's a fun little ride...
23. 93 Bronco Custom - 5.0L/Auto. Picked this little guy up for $800.00 this past weekend for my GF and her kids to have a ride in. It's leaking from everywhere but, slowly but surely, we'll get it all fixed up for her...
24. 2000 Excursion XLT 4x4 - 5.8L/Auto. Seats 9 w/ cargo. GF and I have 8 total so we needed something BIG!!!
25. 94 Bronco XLT - 5.8L V8/E4OD. Stock for now. Have ProComp 6" lift in garage. Need some 35s on rims so I can get it installed. Gonna be my driver for a long time!!!
26. 2006 Ford Explorer 4x4 V8. Replaced the 2000 Excursion with this. Fits almost ALL the kids and is more reliable and better on petrol.
27. 2000 Ford F250 Crew Cab Lariat 4x4 V10. Just picked it up this past weekend. Traded my 94 Bronco for it.

My mom still has her 03 7.3 Powerstroke. I'm not a fan, but I appreciate the torque. I'm an NA gasser here. My F250 makes about 440 ft-lbs. I'm planning a 351W build for my Nissan that makes at least 400.
