I don't have any of the cars in my signature anymore.

Postby Red0ktober » Tue Mar 29, 2016 11:21 pm

Hey guys, it's been a while. I got an email when someone posted to an old thread, so I poked my head back in here.

I finally sold my first and last Trooper.

I also traded my Range Rover.

Technically I still own the Volvo I sold 11 months ago. The current "owner" (not the guy I sold it to) just contacted me. It was recently rear-ended and they want a bill of sale from me to get an insurance settlement because the title is still in my name. :roll:

Now I have a '98 Volvo V90 that I'm swapping a Ford Explorer 5.0 and 4R70W into (with speed parts). I traded the '96 Range Rover for an '03 Discovery. I had a wrecked '97 Explorer as the engine donor for my Volvo, so naturally I bought a $500 '97 Explorer so that I extract more parts from the engine donor Explorer. I still have a '71 Opel Kadett wagon that I would like to jam together for the inaugural LeMons Rally this year.

So, that's where I've been.

Ooh... lots of Ford Explorer stuff going on there!

In my spare time (HA!) I'm keeping an eye out for an 8.8 with limited slip to put under my Fairlane.

I see a lot of sigs with notes beside the vehicles like Sold, Wrecked, Traded, Donated, Killed by... Mine included. I thought about adding all my favorite cars I've owned to my sig with notes on how they died or what I traded them for but it would be way too long.
2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP
1990 Trooper 2.8 V6 Auto (Wrecked... sent to the crusher)
1993 Shortbed, regular cab Z71 (Donated to step-son #2)(deceased, parted out)(Forums for GM and fullsize 4X4s suck... so I'm still hanging out here)
1965 Ford Fairlane 500 Sports Coupe 289 & 4 speed (some assembly required)
1968 Kaiser M715, Chevy 350/700r4, stock NP200 and 5.87 gears... prepping for Ford 390/T-18/divorced NP205 transplant.. .just because.

I have one of those. But I'm sure you can find one closer to you. 8.8 LSD are very common in Explorers.

Sounds like you need another Zu!
These links have write-ups and pics of most anything you ever will do on a 2.6 Isuzu. Engine, brakes, suspension, interior, you name it! Enjoy!

I've had several different types of Isuzus for lots of years, but I think I'm done buying the same car twice. I don't see myself buying another Isuzu. There are too many other cool cars out there.

How about a Ford 5.0 in a Volvo.

Don't mind if I do.

I'm wondering how many folks will get that email and check in. I know a lot were subscribed to that thread.
