2000 Suzuki TL1000R. Best bike EVER! Sold to buy the DMax.



2000 Jetta GLS. Sold to buy the Dmax. Blew up a few times due to some bad decisions.

Then I bought this POS rot box. Second worst truck ever, but only because of the rot, ran great. Traded in on the F-450.



And my first business truck. 2004 E-350 Ext cargo XLT. Awesomest van ever.



Sold it to my father in law in this form just without the ladder racks, called "The Coroner".




THE CURRENT LINEUP.

You've seen the F-450.



The Mustang



The wife's FISO



Post em up!

I've had mine since December before last. Rims on that truck are shinier, the running boards are different, and last but not least that truck has straighter sheet metal.

That rot box pictures is taken at a place that looks familiar. Is it in Toland across from Dance Express?

First car I bought myself. Fun car, but would have liked to have the quattro. Couldn't find a picture with the rims on it, but I will put a picture of those up as well. Sister killed it.



Second car I purchased after giving the a4 to my sister. Then, while working on the a4 for her, I let her borrow it, and she tore the front bumper off. 2 years later moved here, and a lady ran a light and totalled it.


First ford of my own. Aweful, aweful purchase. Paid 800 for it, put 400 in it. Then it wouldn't run at all. Junked, before I met all you guys that may have been able to help it some.


And of course, now I drive clyde


I thought I might add my farm vehicle in.

These are the only vehicles i have ever owned and still have them all.
Here is my 83' which my dad gave to me. it has a body life to fit those huge tires in the front of it. There 33x12.5. The 2wd's don't have much room.

Here is my 91'. I've had it about a month. Got it for $1000 with fisher speed-cast plow. Runs great. Needs exhaust. Brakes. Rear Shackles and rust repair. The cab is black and the bed is blue. The crap under the door is the plastic trim for the door. It has nice rust there.
