    Default whats your set of Wheels?

    just curious, my garage includes:
    1999 Ford F-150 5.4 V8 4x4 5 Speed Extended cab short box
    1995 Ford Ranger Super Cab 4.0 V6 4x4 5 Speed
    1994 F-150 4x4 351W Auto
    1980 Ford F-350 4x4 505 Big Block 4 Speed
    1978 Ford Bronco 4x4 460 Big Block
    1969 Ford Mustang 429 BOSS

    these are my toys, just wondering if anyone else has the same kind of liking for things on four wheels. the Mustang was a project car for a long time, as was the '80 F-350 was a 351M untill i swapped the biggest Ford V8 i could find in to it, a 505CID Big block out of a L7000 series Dumptruck from the 70's.

    In the driveway is a 1985 Chevy Blazer Tahoe (S10) 4x4 but needs a pump seal for the transmission - so its on the "chopping block" for sale. Looking to pick up something similar, preferably a Cherokee, maybe.

    But what I would really like is one o them Scout Car thingy's from www.forceprotection.net. Even the Cheetah would be nice.

    My wheels:
    1999 Chev Suburban K1500 Diesel, aftermarket 4th row seat, carries 12.

    Wifey's wheels:
    1997 Chev Suburban K2500 Diesel, aftermarket 4th row seat, carries 11.

    Hers has better tow/hauling capacity, less miles, new engine, front buckets, leather, pretty nice.

    And, uh, yeah, we have a lot of kids. One of my fellow firefighters recently found out how many children we have and asked "What the hell's wrong with you!?". I told him, "Apparently, nothing." End of discussion.

    Apparently the problem is your one head has too little control over your other head. So how many little ones you got? Catholic or Mormon?!?!

    Here is FWDbuff's toy........1958 F.W.D. Model F-725 (750GPM/500GWT) serial F80438. 140GZ Waukesha/5 speed Clark trans.......Originally delivered to Bryn Athyn, Pa. spring of 1958. My father (chiefengineer11) was 17 and a junior. This is the truck he learned to drive on. It also happens to be the first firetruck I ever rode on....Dad took me to a parade in Bridgeport, Pa. in August (we think) of 1976. Truck sold to Harrisonville, NJ (Gloucester County) July of 1978. I purchased it from them summer of 2001 and did a minor restoration.

    Also pictured, a faithful friend who has gone into the garage in the sky....My 1998 Toyota 4-Runner, picture taken on the beach at Cape Hattaras, NC. Bought by me as a "divorce present" (from wife #1) for myself. Coincidentally totalled by wife #2 (hydroplaned on Route 22 in Bethlehem, Pa. in a bad rainstorm and bounced off the jerseywall several times. ) Was the best damn vehicle I ever owned, had 177,000 miles on it when she bit the dust. Was a frikken TANK in the snow! Yes, wife #2 is still wife #2. She got the minivan and I took her 2004 Ford Escape.

    these are my toys, just wondering if anyone else has the same kind of liking for things on four wheels. the Mustang was a project car for a long time, as was the '80 F-350 was a 351M untill i swapped the biggest Ford V8 i could find in to it, a 505CID Big block out of a L7000 series Dumptruck from the 70's.

    Wow, so that will give you one car that works while you fix the other 5! Go get yourself a Geo if you need buy american but want foreign reliability!

    I myself own a 2005 wrx sti a 95 geo prizm (ghetto cruiser) and an 05 husqvarna for fun.

    The Mrs. has a the better part of the deal......

    2007 Toyota Highlander Sport (with 3rd Row) in Crystal White. This is like a
    pearlescent paint. Very sweet "truck."

    I get the 2005 Subaru Outback Wagon.



    We will be moving soon...........and part of the deal is that I get to trade in my Subie (after it is paid off by the end of the year) for an '07 or '08 Toyota 4Runner Sport in Salsa Red..........Got all my options picked out too.

    I had a 1991 4Runner SR5. That thing would take on every snow storm we ever had in New Emgland and just keep begging for more. I NEVER once lost control, skidded, or had any problems in rain or snow.

    Now the 1998 GMC Sierra that I traded it in for (What in the HELL was I thinking? ) just plain sucked in the snow.

    Since there is snow in our future.........I can't wait to get my 4Runner back.
