This weekend my 68 Camaro was invited to show in the invite only Salem Roadster Show held in the State Fairground in Salem, Oregon. The promoters spend the year looking for top notch show cars all around the northwest and surrounding areas. This years show was again full of all types of cars from hot rods to muscle…
Well I got off at noon and went north to my friend’s garage, he got it at 8:30 this morning from the trucker. We drove it around the back streets, it’s insane! Actually a very comfortable smooth ride. It is a lot of fun with the windshield down. It will be painted and some little issues addressed, lots of old lights,…
OK, so are we all familiar with the OX? If not, it’s a low-cost flat pack truck designed by Gordon Murray (of course it’s middle drive), using some Ford Transit FWD 2.2 diesel hardware, meant for developing nations.
Last week, I saw a comment over on Jalopnik that I think really captured the nature of the American automotive market.
The bulging fenders and slightly higher roof you can see behind the NA Ranger 4x4 is a New Zealand-market T6 Ranger HR 4x2 or 4x4. Behind that, much more prominently, is a 2011 F-150, I don’t know whether it’s 4x2 or 4x4.
A couple of weeks ago, had a little photo shoot with my 33 Ford Pickup. Got the pictures back and wow they came out great! The old paint my grandpa laid down in garage 27 years ago still pops under the lights. The photographer was great to work with and if anyone in the Portland Oregon area needs some nice quality…
After the jump.
Citing no specific recent incidents in particular, Lowe’s CEO Robert Niblock announced Thursday the closure of the Lowe’s rental truck program at all 2,300 participating locations.
To appreciate how nice these wheels look, especially compared to the usual bro-trucky, star-centered, atrocities that are found on 95% of trucks today? Also, black trim is 10,000,000x better than chrome. I give this concept vehicle an 8/10.
The Toyota Hilux is back in Japan. After 13 years of demise.
I don’t think I have. So, here goes:
Drove my buddy’s ‘97 GMC Sierra today. 5.7 with Flowmasters. Jesus, it’s addicting. I really, really need to either put a V8 into my Dakota, or get another truck with a V8. There’s just something about a truck with a V8.
With the purchase of my new camera a couple months ago, I have been using the day lights out of it. Finally had the opportunity to get both of my oldies together for some photos.
This is the work truck for my shift in Alaska on the North Slope. It’s a diesel with a bunch of extra stuff attached to it. It’s about 12 feet tall.
10/10. Would own if able. What a truck!
Over the past few months I have chased down a brake fluid leak, replaced a caliper, bled the whole system, got new tires put on, mounted the spare securely, and replaced the ignitor on my 1985 Pickup. All in it was about $400 including maintenance items and probably a weeks worth of total time. It is ready for summer…
I always forget how awkward the bed on the slab side Studebaker trucks of this era looked. I found this and actually had to do a google image search to remind myself the bed sides really did stick out past the cab.
For only $1000 you can have an old NAPA delivery truck with the hat on the roof.
$1000 1985 Toyota Truck 4x4 5 Speed and $750 1987 Honda XR250
My girlfriend noticed this truck this morning. She figured I would probably get the reference better than her. She was right and this sticker is perfect and the owner is my new hero.
