you are correct
I haul asphalt for paving roads, but also (winter time mostly) a fair amount roofing for another customer

That's a cool little truck. I had a 62 Falcon Ranchero for a while years ago. It's funny, I remember who I bought it from, I remember driving it but don't have a clue as to why or when I sold it, man this mind of mine.

1996 C2500. 5.0L Vortec, with a 3/4 drop and some minor suspension upgrades. 3.73 rear, stock G80 locker, 4L60e and 240,000 hard-working miles. I couldn't bring myself to get rid of this thing. Bought a set of 16" Z71 "slicers" that I'm polishing to put on it:

Don't you remember?, that night we hit the bars and you got so drunk
I had to drive you home, and you were so appreciative that you told me just to keep it as your way of saying "thanks man".

love that awsome lookin front clip. paint scheme complements it

I just handed over the 05 Infiniti to the wife for the summer while I drive my 76 C10 with a 350 TPI/700r4 combo.

Early spring here, so I will get a good driving season this year.

This is my DD as it fits me better then the '12 Ford Fusion. Since gas passed $4/gallon yesterday, the 10mpg '06 F350 V10 will be garaged more and the DOHC I4, ~30mpg Fusion will be getting more miles added to the odometer:



No, it's not lifted, just has the off road package, which puts it at 85" tall and clears the garage door top frame by ~1.5 inches

Is that the fx35 or 45? I've been looking at those. How's the gas mileage on it?

It's an FX4, Off Road, F350 Super Duty Crew Cab, 8000+ pounds, 416 cid, 4.10 gears
As far as gas mileage - before 10% ethanol it was close to 12mpg, now, 10 around town. Open road trip, 14 plus if you keep it 2100 rpm or less. Not an inexpensive truck to own as far as maintenance and parts tho the diesel version is higher regardless of what their owners say in defense of that choice

What's your driver

Sorry guys, I haven't felt well the last four days and I haven't been on the computer but I just read all the post and there are some great rides and pictures even. Sounds like we are all getting concerned about the cost of fuel, it will really affect the cost of my trip to Ohio at the end of the month. My truck gets around sixteen mph, I filled it up one day last week and it held $90.00 0f 93% octane. But I would not miss the trip if it was $8.00 per gal.

I'm retired, so I don't drive daily. Over 30 years ago, at a rate of 100K miles per year, this was pretty much driven daily, parked in my girlfriends driveway and her behind the wheel.....


Also, the same time period......


But today, my old fart side is showing.....
