This was my baby up until I bought the Jeep. After experiencing how good the Jeep is as a daily driver and grocery getter, I've decided I don't really need two trucks.

Whenever I need to actually haul stuff, this old beast is really better for the job anyway. I honestly hardly ever haul anything in the pretty truck. This is a '77 F350 with a 390 FE from a '74 or a '75, and a T-18 taken out of some old dump truck. The previous owner converted it from automatic to manual, and I added an overdrive transmission to get a little better gas mileage on the highway. The overdrive was a gigantic and expensive pain in the ass that probably wasn't worth the trouble, but it's cool having an 8-speed F350.

Also has ridiculously nice dash with actual walnut burl surrounding fully custom Speedhut gauges. I got kind of stupid with that build, honestly.

I would have to agree on the ride.

I know the feeling. When I retiered the first time I got a 2004 C5, Silver coupe. Wonderful. Then I found my C7 and feel in love with it. Unbelievable

Somehow I don't have a pic of the fusion sedan handy...but the below and the JLUR keep the fusion company.

My childhood dream is a '69 Stingray, Monaco orange with black leather interior and those beautiful chrome side pipes. Actually kinda hoping by the time I'm ready to buy one, they have a full electric conversion kit. Would be kinda cool to have a '69 Stingray with the guts of a Tesla.

They're actually relatively cheap nowadays, but I'm not *quite* there yet - still need to be able to haul kids around for a few more years, and I don't currently have a place to put it. Next house will have a 3-car garage, though - specifically for The Orange Bandit*

*Yeah, it already has a name. Like I said, childhood dream.
