Since it was mentioned in my project car thread and sounded like a good idea, Let's have a vehicles show off thread. Should try to keep it to vehicles we own or at least have regular access to drive. Anything beyond good-natured banter on the fanboy front will just be edited out. This is for fun, keep it that way. I'll start, since I've probably spent more on gas and diesel throughout my life than anything else and loved every second of it: My first love, my '89 Ford F-150, 5.0L V8, 5 Spd manual. Chopped the entire exhuast off at the manifolds and drove it around like a retard for a year. Found out by accident that it could jump no problem, launched it almost every day after that and never broke anything. I miss that thing still....but 3 MPG when you're 19 hurts a lot... After that (kinda at the same time, really) I came to own this glorious ridiculous monstrosity, my '00 Dodge Ram 2500 work truck. It was a 5.9L Inline 6 Cummins diesel, 4x4, automatic (rebuilt twice because that engine chewed up shitty Chrysler automatics). And yes, that big thing on the back is a utility body. It was a plow/work truck its entire life. I sold it a couple years ago because the rear end was going out and because of the gearing/trans/engine combination, the specific rear end for it would cost more than the ting was worth. Also having been a plow truck in New Hampshire most of its life, it was rusting to shit. Oh well: Then in 2008, as a dumb PFC in the Marine Corps, I got my first auto loan and bought one of the most fun vehicles I ever own; an '04 Dodge Dakota 4x4, 4.7L V8, 4 door. The power of that drive train with the small size of the truck made it a blast to drive on and off road. I loved it. And now my ex-wife loves it because divorce is fun, kids: I did a hackjob exhaust on it too, and it sounded great. Here's a friend of mine recording me going through the tunnels in West Virgina: Then I had another '89 F-150, same as the first but this was a short bed. Everything else was the same. I loved this thing too but it wasn't worth much and when I left California, I gave it to one of the dumbass kids that worked for me: And lastly, my project car detailed in my original thread, the '01 Lincoln Town Car:
