Here's my wife's ride - 2000 Nissan Maxima SE that just turned over 106,500 miles.  I did pads, rotors, and braided stainless flex lines on it last week.

Here is my Work In Progress - 1968 Plymouth Sport Fury that came from AZ last January.  It is in Ohio to be media blasted and painted soon.

Nice Fury! When I was a kid, Dad had a '73 Fury III. I always wanted one from the late '50s or early '60s.

I have a 81' Chevy C-30 with inline 6 cylinder, hoping to put in a diesel combine engine one of these days (have the engine it just needs to be put in)

Now the pickup has a really big and heavy pipe back bumper!

Still driving my Ol' '55 GMC. Got new wheels and tires last week. The wheels are original ones from my Mom's '70 GMC Jimmy that I won't be using on it, hubcaps were rescued from a crusher pile, and the trim rings came off a '91 Sonoma I have in the yard. The wife informed me we will be pulling a float in a parade next Saturday but the junk tires I had on it wouldn't have made the 160 mile round trip. I probably would have kept the crappy tires longer until this made up my mind for me. Sure does drive and steer way better and straight as an arrow down the highway at 65 mph!

This was my daily driver until the transmission broke again. It's a 89 GMC Sierra heavy half ton. It has a 350 and a auto trans. Being a northern truck the most of the paint is still in surprisingly nice shape but it needs rocker panels and the front fenders are also starting to get bad. If I can find a cheap parts truck I am thinking about converting it to a 5speed since I can not win with auto transmissions in this truck. I was with my dad the day he bought the truck back around 2004 I think. In 2009 my step mom gave it to me for my birthday and I plan to restore this truck one day since it is one of the few think I have left that was my dad's.

I bought this truck last summer for a guy I work with for 500. It is a 88 Chevy K1500 with a 305 and a turbo400 transmission. Once I have time I am going to repair this one and get it back on the road to use as my daily driver/ beater truck. Don't let the picture fool you it doesn't look as good as the picture makes it. Somehow there is at least one dent in every body panel lol.

I also have a 2000 Chevy Cavalier that my uncle gave to me a couple years ago needing some work. I replaced all of the brake lines this summer and overall it is a good little car and gets decent gas mileage too.

Here is my 1977 F-250. Put a 6.9 twin turboed Cummins in her followed by a NV 6500 Tranny and a NP 205 Transfer Case riding on Dana 60s front and rear. Added a set of 38" Thornbirds and blasted it with rattle can paint. She gets me to work and back and can tow a house if I needed to and gets roughly 26 mpg when I am not getting heavy and rolling coal.

Our new toy.  A 1998 Lincoln Town Car.  She only has 37,000 original miles on her.  Runs and rides like I am driving down the road in my recliner.

I have a one of a kind, but not in the sense that most people think. I bought this 84 Dodge for $300 7 or 8 years ago as a spare for my boy and I. One side was beat up from rolling downhill into a woods. As things go wrong with it, I just fix it with whatever I have or as cheaply as possible.

 

The ignition started giving problems so now it has an 81 Dodge distributor and a '73 GM ignition system. Same with the alternator. It's a GM one wire now.

 

My boy T-boned a guy that ran a stop sign. Got a $1000 check from that guys insurance, beat the fenders off the tires, and put in a radiator. Bungeed one headlight in place. ( it even stays aimed right!)

 

I left it out of gear in my yard a couple months ago. Rolled into the ditch 10 minutes later. Beat the fenders out again and had to re-aim the other headlight.

 

The wipers and heater fan run on household light switches. The hood safety latch is a piece of stiff wire. Installed a cheap battery disconnect. Completely rewired turn light switches.

 

I run Lucas hub oil in the tranny to keep it from leaking. Its a bear to shift in the winter.

 

There's more that I cant think of now.

 

I have a '78 Chevy heavy 3/4 ton I bought new in '78 that is my workhorse. I put a flatbed on it about 25 years ago.

always a Dodge or 2 in the driveway...

I actually have one of the few Lean burn units that still works on my 78 Sport Fury  318, true duals (added by me)  still a 2 bbl 51K original miles been on 2 Power Tours  I have the "Lean burn-ectomy" parts on hand as I have done my share of those back in the 80s...

my daily is either a 93 Dakota Club Cab  318 5 speed ( auto to stick convert by me)

or a 97 Wrangler with an inline 6 that I have owned since Y2K...

my wifes daily is an o1 Durango with 219K on its 360

my kid daily drives a 90 W 250 heavy 3/4 ton 4WD pickup he also has an 89 Ramcharger that we drove X country from Vegas home to Chicago about 4 years ago, paint "sun burnt" but NO RUST needs paint NEVER driven in salt or snow. , both of his trucks are 360's under the hood/// their 88-91 TBI is worse than Lean Burn, both his trucks are to be swapped to a 4 barrel carb as the weather starts to cooperate (the TBI is by Holley, OEM system on these trucks,  both going to Carter 4 barrels) I never have had any luck with anything Holley.

He has a 440 sitting here trying to decide which truck to put it into
