Other Rides

Here you guys are in the cooler climates at altitude pulling your bikes out for rides this time of year and those of us in the south are putting them away until the fall so that we don't melt lol.
*Reading this from San Diego...* Putting a bike away? Like, in storage so you can't ride it? I'm not following. :cool:

Like leaving it in the garage because it’s 100+ with 90% humidity lol. If you can ride and be home by 10am it’s bearable, but there’s no sense in riding when you’re absolutely miserable, that’s the exact opposite of why I ride.
 
Just found this thread, figured I'd post up. First two are current, summer sunny day ride and the winter beater. 09 ultra with a stage 3 kit and 103" big bore kit. And my 04 6.blow ZF6, stock except for a sinister ficm, straight pipe and the EGR just fell off one day... I keep it around just bc being a 6.0 I doubt anyone would give me what I want for it.

A couple years back I sold my truck from highschool, 75 F250 camper special that I restored over a number of years. 390 C6 2WD. Had the 390 spiced up a little, never had it dyno'd but it sure was quick! Now I kinda regret selling it.

Lately I've been looking at maybe picking up a new triumph scrambler 400 just for the fun of it.
 
Here's my favorite ride. Lots of horsepower, dual alternators, and requires a daily oil change. She hates belts; they come off anyways. Any gear ratio you request and loves 4x4. She's optioned with a spare too!

Does your ride like big ass water areas?
 
Well now I cannot compete with the previous post...so I am not even gonna try.

This is my baby.
Most of the upgrade to the 1955 F-100 came from a 2003 SVT Terminator Mustang Cobra.
2003 & 2004 Ford released a 4.6L V8 (32 Valve 4 cam) with a Super Charger from the factory with a T56 Tremac six speed tranny and independent suspension rear end.
The engine has been bored and stoked to 5.01Ltr, swapped to a 110MM throttle body and has a hot tune with bigger over-drive pulley for the super charger. Dyno 612Hp on the crank. Borla exhaust out the back.

The original F100 frame has been fully boxed and powder coated RED. Front end has a Heidts Mustang ll with coil overs with Rack n Pinion power steering.
The rear end from the Mustang is independent with a 4.10 gear and can be seen through the Lexan mounted in the bed of the truck.
The 4 wheel disc brakes, BBS forged wheels and the gauges came from the 2003 Mustang
It has Vintage Air with Porche Lipstick Red Leather interior.
The paint color is called Tungsten T8. Ford released this color in 2006 on a GT40

Drives like a go-cart but it is way to light on the back end and it is hard to make it hook to the ground.
The truck weighs in a 3665lb. Lots of fun to drive.
I chase car shows with this truck when I can.

I bought a 2004 Cobra "Terminator" when I graduated from college, those were special cars. Crazy to think that's what's under that old truck, pretty cool.

Beautiful truck! In the old days, my father and brothers used to seek 56 Fords. The mods we did was usually adding a Chrysler 383 or 440 when we could get our hands on one (and the gas was still leaded). The Ford 9-inch rear end was amazing, don't ever remember blowing one out. The rear end would fishtail at the slightest acceleration, was difficult to drive, but was a lot of fun. Those were the days.

Thanks...
My Dad gave me a 55 F100 when I was 14 years old. It was canary yellow with a straight 6 , 3 on the tree. it had about agallon of bondo on the front fenders...but the paint looked pretty good. It about a half round of slack in the steering wheel and was some thing you had to drive to keep it in the road. I would have to put a quart of oil in it to got to school and a quart to get back home...rear main seal was pouring it out. My uncle had a 67 cougar and he wrecked it and let me have it if I paid the wrecker bill. It had a 289 HP with a C4 auto tranny.
I took the motor and tranny out of that car and got a old mechanic to help me get that 6 cylinder out put it in that 289 in it. WE put a 9-inch rear in it also. It had a set of Thrush glass packs right off the headers...you could not hear your self think it was so loud in the cab
When I retired I went on hunt for a few years and finally found a 55 F-100 that was in good shape.
