Some of the toys

Few of my other vehicles besides my '88 Bird.

Wifes '12 Focus. 5 speed manual with sport package, fun little car, and y POS 2005 Pontiac Sunfire sitting next to it, only a winter car to keep the Tbird away from the salt monster, not worth taking pictures of. You can't keep a strut or wheel bearing on the thing for more than a few months, but hey it was free.



1988 Ranger getting the 5.0 treatment, currently for sale to fund other projects.




Old DD, 1991 F150 shorty. 300/6 M5od combo. Made out of probably 11 different trucks with over 500k on the clock.



1979 F100, 300/6, C4. What was supposed to be used as a cheap truck for running errands/hauling stuff around the house after buying my first place quickly turned into a frame off rebuild.






1980 F150 Flareside, built for bombing around in the woods. 302, T18, NP208 combo. Solid axle swap Dana44 with leaves.



1992 F-Superduty, 6.9 IDI, ZF5. Took it on a trade, going to set the body from a 1955 F250 on the Superduty chassis. No pictures of the '55 unfortunately.

I also had an addiction to Honda 3 wheelers, had about 12 at one time in parts. Most are long gone now.

My favorite is your '79!  I think 73-79 is the best looking Ford truck body style.  I'm probably biased as a grew up riding in a '78 F-250 4x4.  I've got a '73 F-250 4x4 in pieces I'm trying to restore...gonna be a long haul I'm afraid.
'88 'bird, 10.9:1 306 w/TFS top end, forged rods/pistons, T-5 swap & bunch of other stuff, 1-family owned, had it since ‘98, 5.0tbrd88 on Instagram and YouTube

I love em too, only downside is that it's only a 4x2. They pull a premium price around here so I grabbed this one, It's a Southern truck with not too much rust.

Yeah I hear you on that.  Around here most of those all rotted away years ago.
