    on the muscle cars years back but I've had 2  67 Coronets, a 65, a 69 Sport Fury convertible, a few 70's Darts and a 72 Satellite, the roadrunner body with the 318.....

    Now my little Toy 4cyl 4x4 just keeps putting along and crawling over or through anywhere I want to go so..... and my F-150 is the perfect one, the first of their port fuel systems which is just simple as heck and works very well..unlike their CFI systems just prior to this one.....and it will tow my airstream (24' ultralight, only 3k dry) if my back ever gets any better,  and I'll head a bit east for some of that pork on the hoof y'all have so much of.........

    my brother is currently having a bit of a Duster episode....He's gone through about 4 this year buying and trading or selling up looking for an original V-8 4 speed car he found one and is almost there.....currently has a very pretty 75 with nice og Crager SS Mags, nice suspension height, straight and clean...At the tranny shop at the moment but should be nice enough to get the cash he needs for the 70 he wants for himself.......

        it had so many poor repairs and patches and such I never thought I'd get it straightened out...for the first year, every trip to town it left me stranded or tried to...last couple years it's been perfect.....it took replacing every bit of the rigged fuel system and a complete major tune plus lots of junk wiring removed, some replaced....

        Need to put tires on it and the trailer, pack some bearings and take it for a local test drive...oh yeah and a Master Cylinder...once I got the Toy, I drove the Ford so little the Cyl went bad from sitting....I have it, just need to install it.

          but then again it ain't a Chevy, so it's all good.

          Yeah, I'm a chauvinist.

          I have been set afoot twice in my life by 318 Mopars and once by a slant six (I broke the frame that held the brake and wheel and hub assembly in line -- not the axle, the A-frame, sliding in deep fresh gravel -- hit a 16'' kerb; never got that front end quite right again).

           NEVER had a Chevy stay running with me -- altho I did have a Ford, in high school, that tried real hard. ;7)

          I had a 360 in a pickup that was the mother of all lemons... you likin' the Toyota? Which one is it?

            with no luxuries but A/C...nothing power inside, even manual hubs...everything works like a champ, get's somewhere around 25 till I add a bed full of feed and it drops off quick....

            True goat, will creep anywhere and isn't half bad at buzzing down a dirt road either.

            Even came with a nice stereo, I've had to put a battery so far, nothing else and I don't see anything coming.  Everything actually checked out well maintained.
