Badass! That place looks familiar. I think it's near Ardbeg trail, no?
2003 ford f350 crew cab long bed, non dually. 6.0 Powerstroke connected to some 4 speed auto. bone stock except for the emissions delete and new heads. Makes the loudest turbo whistle in all of Wyoming (dont hold that over my head just quite yet)
yes this is basically the only good photo i have, im lazy
I still have the 99 GMC, 105,000 miles on it now, still running good. After 3 Northeast PA winters, it’s starting to rot pretty bad. It had very little rust (or so I thought) when I got in in February 2019. Now it’s going to need rockers and cab corners for inspection this year, and probably front fenders, a tailgate and a rear bumper for next year.
A few months ago I bought my grandfathers 02 Silverado. He had it since 2007, and besides the normal Chevy issues, water pump twice, fuel pump, brake lines, fuel lines, and maybe a few other small things, it has been pretty reliable. It had 152,000 on it when I got it, now I have about 158,000 on it. The tranny grenaded exactly a week after I bought it, I found out after the fact that those were one of the worse ones Chevy ever made. I had it rebuilt, and besides the drivers window motor, I haven’t had any other issues.
The day I got it:
After a much needed wash and wax:
And a project, a 1976 Triumph TR7, which was my dads first car. I’ll post more about that another time.
Haven't seen you here in a while. Nice TR7, I love those.
Raglan sand pits near Oshawa, Ontario. Haven't been to Ardbeg yet, planning to go on May 24
A little update to my previous post from months ago:
1995 GMC Sierra C1500, has around 150k miles at this point. Original 5.7l v8 and 4l60e.
2" RC suspension lift with 33x12.5 tires on 15x7 AR62 Outlaw II wheels. Still a rock solid truck.
01 f-150 xl 5mt 4.2 v6
That's a shame. I own one! mine is a '00 that looks almost identical, but it's white. Been around in my family ever since it was new, so it's well-maintained. It's great fun on windy roads, as it's a manual, hydraulic steering of course, and it's really light and agile. But only as long as you go downhill, since it has the 12 valve 1.2 L four banger, which used to make 62 hp when it was new, about 22 years and 200,000 km ago. So uphill can be rather... umm... un-fast, shall we say? Also, it recently started to develop some coolant issues which I need to fix. Still, I love it.
One day when I'll have the cash and the time I'd maybe upgrade it's engine - it's surprisingly reliable for a rather old Renault, but it can struggle to keep up with traffic uphill :/
What engine did yours have in it? Was it the 1.4? I assume it's a higher trim, as your mirrors are body colored
It was a 1.6 and (i believe, could be the previous owner replacing the trim things) a higher trim. The car was already kinda halfway to deaths door, loosing some power every once in a while. The car could be repaired, but after that incident it was too uneconomical to fix and was decleared a write-off.
this with different wheels
just today put these TE37 reps (AVID1 AV6's) on my 03 Matrix XRS 6MT
had this car going on a year and its almost at the big 200'000 mark, not a single hiccup yet.
picked this thing up last week and have completely fallen in love with it. the best car ive driven, so much fucking fun. it's a 2009 fiat panda 100hp with the skydome roof that's been immaculately maintained. i have named him Milo
(also kueso your matrix genuinely looks sick i love it)
