As you can tell by my name I'm a bit mechanically inclined. Any one got any cool rides or hot rods out there?

I'll start.

I got a 02 mustang GT with cams/longtube headers 4.10 gears, bolt ons, tubular k member with tubular control arms coilovers with strange adjustable shocks. Getting ready to install a 4200 rpm  circle D stall converter.

Daily driver is a 99 v6 f150 with 4.56 gears(towing camper).

I do all my own wrenches except on wife's van, it's under warranty.

My uncle has a bunch of old cars in his barn that he hasn't even touched for several decades. I know there's at least one Mustang, one Camaro, and something else in there. He also refuses to sell them or let anyone see them because he's a hoarder and also generally a terrible person.

 

When he kicks the bucket I'll let you guys know what's up.

I'm not, but a friend is. He is actually having a car show soon, and I'm helping. I forgot the actual date, but if you are in Wisconsin, in the Fox Valley, in april, come on to the car show. If anyone has a reasonable chance of attending, ask for more info, and I will have my friend send the date and time.

This is my current Road Racing car. I have had several others. I turn most of my own wrenches. Some jobs are too big to do at home. I work in the Industry at Strange Engineering. Thanks OP for using our products. Shoot me a PM if you need anything for your current project.

wow, cool!.  I gotta say I like the shocks, they were reasonably priced. I can hook decent for drag or adj them more firm in 30 seconds I can have almost road race handling . Only complaint is they are a little noisy but function perfectly fine.

Getting my uncle's 1995 F-250 in July/August. My IGN should be enough of a hint as to my preference.

I plan on making about 600hp with the 7.3, and buying another OBS350 that I'll swap an IH DT360 into and sled-pull with.


Stats

I write fanfiction and watch anime. Deal with it.

I'm half tempted to fix up the old plow truck, it's an old F250 with a 351 Windsor in it.

That's pretty boss. I'm rather familiar with diesel, at least testing. I run engine dynos at Cummins tech center for research and development . Mostly mid-range stuff, Isb/qsb,isl,Qsl, sometime isx and the v8 for the titan. A lot of emissions stuff. I've ran some Chrysler ISB like 30,000 hours and these are not easy hours, a lot of snap throttle and high load points. They are some robust engines.

See I prefer to run the old stuff. 7.3 and DT360 are both pre-emissions and are mechanical, so I dont have to worry about that stuff. Not a Cummins fan to be totally honest.
