just 5 years ago I had a 94 F150, My dad was original owner, I did little stuff to it. first a 2in drop in the rear, then took that off and did 2in lift springs in the front. of all the little mods I did to the truck; replacing the 3.55 gears with 4.10 gears was by far the best performance mod I did to the truck.
All my friends had new lifted trucks, but I was keepin it real. I didn't know how much I loved my first truck until I sold it for a 2002 yukon(BIG mistake) I still miss my first truck. I don't have a good pic on my comp, so a pic of a pic will have to do

1969 Mercury Marauder X-100

My Dad bought it new then I got it when I turned 16.
That car is to blame for my obsession with the 429.
Wish I still had her.

Oh and the pictures were taken in my high school parking lot.

Default Back in the Good Old Days

I graduated high school in 1965 and had a Red and white 1956 ford victoria 2 door hardtop. It had a T-Bird 312 automatic. First thing I did was get rid of that nasty automatic. I put a 3 speed overdrive with an inline floor shift. shaved the hood and deck lid , then changed the door handles to a different style, got rid of the grill and put in a tube grill I remember drag racing friends and would I would pass someone at 90mph and when I would be right beside them so they could see then shift out of 1st gear and hit second gear and be gone. Yea That was the good old days. That car would start shaking from 70 up to bout 95, then it started to smooth out and it would run up to 140. I thought this is so cool just feels like I am running on air. What I was doing was driving about as fast as my Guardian Angel could fly!! The Good Lord had a plan for me because I gave Him so many chances to snatch my little dumb ass off this earth. Now I just use cruise control set on the speed limit. Yep, Those Were The Good Old Days

I graduated in '88 and drove a '79 Buick Opel. I wish I still had it, with a small block Chevy in it. It was fun and fairly quick, it would chirp the tires going into 3rd gear. I have never seen another one like it.
