Well I'm not that old but I've got an old truck. Can I still join the fun The truck was my grandfathers and it got passed down to my father after he died and I've basically got it now. I've included 3 photos. One of how it was about 22 years ago and 2 of it as of 2-3 years ago lol. Also for any of you out there wonder.. Yes there is a story behind the Orange -.-' xD
Some of you will notice the ranger grille lol even though its not a ranger it was still a replacement at the time being. haha. I have way more images that I collected over the course of me and my fathers short lived restoration of the old beast if anyone wants to see them.
Looks like a good start on a truck.
I do have a questin on a car in you sig, you list a 87 Bird turbo 2.5, I had 2 matching 85 turbo coupes and they were 2.3 engines, did Ford jump up to 2.5 when they add the intercooler? Did you put on a turbo from a 2010 SHO?
Wow, I just saw the date at the bottom. Hard to believe I've had her this long. Every time I fire her up, she still makes the sweetest music through her headers and glasspacks, and she will still spit her U-joints and pressure plate bolts when I make her angry. Whoever said old trucks have alot of upkeep is dead wrong in my opinion. I've only had to replace a ballast resistor and change the oil (u-joints, spider gears and pressure plate bolts were pure abuse and wouldn't happen if it weren't so fun) since I paid $750 3 1/2 years ago. She was kinda mangled in the face, but in the bed was a '65 fender and grille, new looking C6 with convertor half dozen headlight bezels and other asst'd stuff. The rest of the sheetmetal was not so bad I couldn't straighten it out. I also added wheels and tires I had collecting dust. Here's a fresher pic from the south end of the farm. She's the pic whore, not me,. Rich
