What do you drive?

Just Curious! I drive a lifted Eddie Buaer Edition Ford Bronco. I've been thinking of finding something else, but not sure what I'd get.

Is it original or a hot rod? My buddy had a '79 that mid 10s in the 1/4.

2BBL 305CI 2dr. Had the dealer installed
Landau but I don't know if I'll keep that.
Nearly all guys under 50YO
ask me if I'm going to make a streeter
out of it, nope.
Some of the most rad streets and pros
I've seen have been G bodies but mine
has been in the family since new in '78
when my mother bought it in Roseville Calif.

Jeep Patriot?

Anybody know about them? I've been eyeing them for awhile. They remind me of the Cherokee.

Sounds Awesome SamD!

I love that body style Elky! Was looking at a '80 model not long ago, but decided to hold off for awhile. Good luck keep us posted on the project!

My cars

I have an '08 Trailblazer and my wife has an '03 Cavalier. When I move closer to work I'm getting an '09 F150 XLT and with 330 days per year of good riding weather here, I'm trying to decide between a Harley Fat Boy and Road King. But I live on a dirt road in the boonies, so my "Going to the gas station for a soda" vehicle is my '08 Suzuki KingQuad 450 ATV. It's fun

a steering wheel and electric cranker. The secret to the startling holeshot ability is an auxiliary set of pedals, but my wife is complaining about having to do that anymore.

Just got back from the range. I killed that paper outlined prick. I wish they would make paper targets that bled...LOL
Took the 2nd son actually my stepson, he has never really shot a handgun before and I think he is a convert now! he loved the Glock.
I took the Camp 9 but didn't shoot it. I have to lube it up and free up the bolt, it has been sitting for a long time and wasn't working free enough. Shotgun ranges tied up so I din't shoot the shotgun. But really needed Glock practice so it was all good.

I took the wife out shooting last weekend. She hated my Glock (smart girl), loved the HK, but the handle was too big and the she had a hard time pulling back the slide. She did a great job with the AR platform, but found that the m4 benelli was too heavy. All in all even though it was 100 degrees, we had a great time.

I was actually

120 miles east inbetween yakima and ellensburg. If you have ever been to tucson, you've been to yakima. I had deja vu driving through tucson 3 years ago...

we were only about 2500 ft so the heat stayed with us. It kept the bugs to a minimum though.

however, back to seattle, my porch read 109 degrees last week for 1 day. No air conditioning. I have it plumbed, but we do not see those temps very often so I spent my money on ammo, a lot of ammo, like 2 boxes!! lol
