Mine was similar to yours Dusty. Only I had the F250, 460 big block, 8" suspension lift, 3" body lift and it sat on 44" Ground Hog tires. I had a love/hate relationship with that truck. I loved driving it, but I hated repairing and putting gas in the darn thing! I got 5 miles to the gallon!

My dad and I did a lot of cars together over the years but this one was special. The bond created by working side by side with him could never be broken. Now that he is gone, all I have are the memories but they are great ones. What I wouldn't give to do just one more car with him...
Seriously. Just what I needed today was a punch right in the feels. I've spent a lot of time turning wrenches with the old man, and he's still here, so I grab every moment I can get. Though, these days we're more likely to be chasing white tails across the TX Hill Country.

My first ride was a 1986 Mazda RX-7 (5-spd with rotary engine). It was my older brother's and was ragged out before he had it, so it didn't have much left when I finally got it. It had been totaled by the insurance company after a drunk college kid hit a stack of parked cars, and this one was at the end. I had turned 16 a few months before, and dad's patience with me driving the family Suburban all the time was waning. I remember the day my brother brought it home, we had to use a crow bar to get the passenger side door open, but it had a sun roof (that didn't leak TOO much)! It also had a short somewhere in the electrical system (I never did chase that down), so the battery wouldn't last more than a day, or even less, sitting before it was dead. My buddies' "fare" for a ride was to help me push-start it in the school parking lot (or wherever).

I don't miss that one, but the second one was a '79 Chevy Suburban. Now that was an awesome ride! It needed new rings; the blow-by was only evident under WOT, so it wasn't too bad. I had a lot of fun in both vehicles, but the 'burb was by far my favorite. It would've been a great platform for A LOT of mods, but I didn't have the dough to support them. Sold it to a buddy for what I paid for it. Today I'd gladly pay 3 or 4 times what I sold it for back then.

In 1969 when I turned 16 I found a used '67 Camaro SS 396 that I wanted but my dad would not sign for me to buy it. Too much horsepower he said. So I bought a bright red '66 Mustang with the 200 cu. in. 6-cylinder engine and three speed on the floor. No A/C but I installed a state-of-the-art 8-track tape player under the dash.
