Boo! And you said that, like, 15 years ago.

Back on topic. . .

0 projects! My '06 LJ-R and '03 Mini R53 are both done, legal, and driveable. I'll just ignore the '63 Ford that I've been storing the past 18 years for my dad.

However, I am casually looking for a YJ for my son. . .

Kind of why I keep my POS chevy. It's nothing special. It's not rust free ( ), it's just a 96 chevy with some odds and ends i've added or done over the years. But it's my first truck i bought on my own, and I'd like to have it for a good long time. Always thought it'd be cool to drive with my kids in it


My best friends dad is the king of this. He has a 30x40 garage that you cannot get into. Thereís I think 6 vehicles in there. And they havenít seen daylight since the 80ís but heís gonna start on em soon lol. Plus the many more heís got outside. Heís got some cool stuff if ur a Chevy guy. Heís got racking full of parts motors and trannyís. Heís still accumulating more to this day lol. I call him the possessor cause once itís on the property he possesses it Heís got a 57 nomad wagon and a 57 4x4 pickup. And a 30ís model Buick and a 396 nova.

97 Cherokee. I've got a 5 speed to swap in it and plan to redo suspension and make it more offroad worthy. I've had it since 2012 and daily drove it for about 30k miles. Body has 340k and motor/trans have around 200k.

The projects:

1989 V3500 Crew SRW

Lol, might have helped...just reading through other build threads, meeting other folks.....we all have the same sickness

I also forgot
My 02 7.3 superdutys going under the knife this summer, going to fab a flatbed (damn superduty box rot!), POR the frame, square tube the rockers, plate steel cab corners, new rear springs....yada yada yada, gotta make this rot box last 3 more UP winters of wood hauling/snow plowing/dd’ing till I can steal the wife’s Cummins and tell her to get a new one.

1990 38’ Fountain fever, twin 454 mags, been our summer toy the last 8 years, hoping to swap surface drives and a pair of 540 ci bbcs in in the next 2 years....or just sell it and a by a 41 apache&#x1f601;

I also have the Chidder (my Chevy log skidder/firewood hauler....hitter in da Chidder!) not a project but I spend more time working on it than most of my projects, probably the most abused square body out there, 1987 Chevy k20, 8 lug 44, welded 14ff, mildly built 427, sm465/205, 38’s, garbage bag for side windows, vise grips for exterior door latches, steel grate/ OSB flatbed and a gas pipe front bumper.....yeah she’s a beaut Clark!

My dads pole barn was 50x100, same way, probably 20 cars inside and many outside. I once counted and the total was in the 70's.

They all got sold in an auction when mom's health issues led to them downsizing.

This! I want a 94-95 Mustang GT convertible with 5 speed because it was the newer body style with the old 302. I am in the same boat though, I am so busy now I don't think I would have time to tinker with it and enjoy it.
