    ...my wife crazy!

    Had to give up driving after my 5th stroke upon both my doctors' advice.  Selling my '99 Ford Ranger to my son for $1 to keep it in the family, and will save on the insurance too.

    My weekend ride, (my daughter thinks its hers!)
     
  4. Here is my brother's latest giving mom a ride, he is always working on something and trading projects. This used to be an old mail jeep (notice the right side drive). He completely rebuilt the motor himself and got some help with the majority of the welding from a few buddies. Either way, it is our new woods buggy to cruise around in so we can see over the bushes and such.

    No pictures of our vehicals .......

    Wife has a 2004 Ford Freestar for everyday and a 2003 e450 20+ passenger bus for her preschool

    Me I have a F150 FX4 super crew with 245k miles, reinforced rear suspension for the flush mount gooseneck hitch. Doing what I can to keep it on the road, enjoying the no truck payments :biggrin: if or when it finally reaches the end of the road looking to get basically the same thing in a F250 model.
     
  7. My son's newest ride


    We may trade up to a corvette or a ferrari for his second birthday.

    Fair weather car:  1978 Pacecar


    Latest project: 1974 Corvette


    Why so many Corvettes?...see the other thread "what was your first car to drive"  :D

    Ha ha ha! My first car was a 1974 Pinto wagon and my bumper sticker said "Caution-this car explodes on impact."  It was awesome, swapped in a 350 HP 351 Windsor / full manual C4 and it was fast! Left it parked at my brother in laws house for the weekend when I went fishing with some friends. Out in the country in rural British Columbia and when I got back it was gone. Never did find it and have never found another one in good enough shape to replace it with :(

    Currently drive a 1997 F150 with 86000 miles on it, 1995 Contour with 124000 miles on it to beat back and forth to work and a 1983 GMC 2500 4x4 as a hunting vehicle / toy / truly bad weather vehicle.  I've needed it to drive to work 3 times this year and only once before this winter in the last 7 years.
     
  13. Wife has an '08 Infiniti FX35
    I have an '02 TDI beetle ( 42 mpg diesel since I drive 30 miles one way)
    '02 Chevy Avalanche because everyone needs a truck :)
    And my toy is a 1969 GTO Judge clone with a build LSX motor ( like a new vette) forged internals with a turbo. New elec transmission and a fabricated 9" rear end. The old motor made 535hp/558tq on 8psi. This one should make about 750hp :). Ill know in a couple weeks when i put it on a dyno. It has all tubular suspension, hydro boost brakes blah blah blah blah. Here's what you really care about... Pics!

  15. That is, hands down, the best car I've seen in this post! I know it's a clone, which in my mind means: I can drive her w/o too much worry?!! I had a '72 GTO in high school...no where as sexy as the '68-'69's :77:
