Does it have weaponry and cupholders?

1987 Bronco II that is about to have a 400hp 2.3L turbo I4 dropped into it. 7" of lift on 33's. At the same time, a 1987 Ranger standard cab short bed with another 2.3 turbo in it. Both were complete frame off restorations, everything done at my house.

then the XR250/277/284cc rebuild I am starting this weekend.

Yes, I am indeed the village idiot of my area.

Post some pictures,

Just picked this up, i will eventually be doing a full updated/upgraded interior.  Not positive or sure about paint scheme yet, but i have a long way to go with it.  It has a 400m motor in it now, in 2-3 years i'll drop a 12v cummins to repower it.  And yes, it is 4wd =D

What's wrong with the interior it has now? :p  :lol:

67' mustang fastback...289 3 speed all original everything. Motor is finished, starting the body soon. I'm helping my old high school autoshop teacher with it, I go down to the school when I can and to his house to work on it. Wish I had some pictures.

71 GMC k2500. It's got factory AC, buckets, and even a tach(was a rare option in these trucks). While the outside is a little rough, the truck is completely original, the dash hasn't even cut to replace the old AM radio. I haven't even started the project let alone finish it. My goal is to (eventually) restore the truck while keeping it almost completely stock.

 

Get a Jeep.

 

Jeeps are good project vehicles because they almost always need work.

haha :rolleyes:

I love mine had her for over 20 years. I treat her like a $20 dollar hooker. Constant project.

Jeeps, old Range Rovers or pickups. I just got an Isuzu TFR LS pick-up truck as a project. 2.8 litre turbo diesel, 4x4 and runs well.

I saw that on Craigslist and was lusting over it. Glad someone here got it. 

 

Big Coon I've got a cool vehicle for sale that just needs the finishing touches done to it.  http://nashville.craigslist.org/cto/4073436014.html

I have to pass. You're a 1000 miles away!

That's just a hop skip and a jump. The car was 1,750 miles away from me in Utah when I bought it. :)

1968 AMC AMX - Full tube chassis - a ways away from completion

If its a first restoration get something simple IMO.

 

Jeeps, Landies, Toyota pickups and suzuki 4x4s, such as a samurai all get my vote.

 

Why suzuki: mechanicals don't really get simpler, and the parts are small and easy to manage on your own. They are also very effective for 4 wheeling.

 

I'm pretty biased though.  :devil:

 

Other than that, carbed RWD v8?
