    I've got 2 of 'em. The wife drives a mostly stock '94, complete with leather seats and the works. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif I've got a '90 that is all black, with dark tinted glass. Bought it bone stock last year with a 350 that smokes like a chimney. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif If I ever find the last few bits I need to get the 454 dropped in, it will be on the road again. There's also a 14-bolt FF, 8-lug 10-bolt front and a set of nice wheels waiting in the garage to be stuffed under it. 4-inches of lift and some 35's should get it looking pretty sweet. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    I have an '83 that my wife uses as a DD. 4" lift and 33's. The motors tired, so in the next month, it will be getting a crate vortec 5.7l with a Comp Cams 252 Roller and 4bl Pro-jection. Should tow my 76 just fine.

    1985 1/2 ton W/4" & 35 Radial Claws. 350w/vortec heads. Not as strong as the stroker motor that commited suicide last fall /forums/images/icons/frown.gif , but better than the weak 350 that was in it when I bought it. DD and family transport for now. Looking at switching to 3/4 ton axles. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    I've got two. One is an 83 totaled by engine fire and need to get rid of. The other is an 87 V20 for which I've got a 14bff, D60, 4" tc front springs, ord shackel flip and swaybar discos, ford shock towers, skyjacker brake lines. All of which has yet to be installed. Tomorow hopefully will change that. I need to buy shocks and rear ubolts, and brakepads, oh yeah, and LOCKERS. I won't even pretend to be able to afford tires before BB.
