very first one was a 1962 chevy long bed pick up with both front fenders rusted completely out along with the floor boards.had a 283 v8 with a granny 4 speed and was slow as molasses . dad gave me the truck with one stipulation , I make it run ! little did I know that his dad had spun a bearing on the crank and continued to drive it until it seized up.  that is how I got it and learned a lot that summer , built another 283 for it and learn to lower the front end the old school cheap way as long as you re aligned the front end after lowering . that thing looked like it had 2" of shims shoved in the A arms to push the top of the tires back over straight ! ran good and was a lot of fun after I learned how to change a transmission out , ended up with a little 4 speed rock crusher muncie stuck in behind it. hell off the line and damn good for about 300' then that old slow ass rear end slowed ya down lol sure would like to have it back.

the 32 chevy when finished brought a cool mint and the real car love of my life , still to this day ! a 1955 chevrolet Bel Air , inline 6 with a 3 speed on the column and a real true joy to own and drive. it was already cherry when I traded for it. drove it till my freshmen year in college. needed money to help with school so it went on the auction block. even back then they brought big money. it gave me cash and another sweet cheaper ride that wasn't as sought after just yet but a blast to drive.

next toy was a 1965 chevy Impala SS big block, 4 speed fast bitch in ice box white , red crushed velvet diamond pleated interior and true spoke wire wheels , 60's on the back , 70's on the front and air ride lol (air shocks on the rear) cool as hell and real old school set up with a tunnel ram and 2- holly carbs shoved under the mail box hood and a set of lake sides with dumps. fast mofo and a blast to drive and did not care how much it cost to drive it cause fuel was about .55 cents a gallon. 

this could go on for days..............................and days

My first truck was a 1991 nissan hardbody 4x4 when i was 16. It was a nice little truck. Since then i have had 16 trucks and one car, am only 23 and have had more trucks then most grown men. My favorite was my 1988 ford ranger pictured below it had a total of 12 inches of lift. I Have been really wanting to do a Bronco 2 like my ranger was but with a straight axle and a 4.0 v6.
