    Before anyone asks, yes I still have my stang. I bought an 89 F-250 with a 6.8L diesel. I love the truck so far! there are a couple things wrong here and there but I got a pretty good deal on it and the previous owner had been repairing multiple things on the truck but had to get rid of it because he can no longer work the clutch due to knee surgery. So far I love the truck. The steering is amazing I have driven so many older trucks that the steering is amazing loose, but the steering in this truck is awesome!

    well I forgot to take some pictures before i went to work, but heres a picture of the truck a little over a year ago (I bought the truck from one of my best friends so I'v known the truck for quite some time. Please excuse the fact that its on a flat bed haha)

    I love those older body style trucks, as you can see from the one in my build thread. Lol. What plans do you have for it?

    Gotcha, so nothing very extreme. It's good to have a vehicle like that though. It sucks sometimes not being able to just get in one and go wherever/do whatever you want for fear of getting it dirty or scratched etc.
