..err... three actually.

‘96 F-350 crew cab dually with 460 big block, for $1k? Probably worth that in scrap metal.
Just rode this little guy home, it was really hard to find a notary open on New Years Day. 2008 Yamaha WR250R. 40 miles on a 55mph highway, and it doesn’t like to go much over 65 with the aftermarket shallow cog that’s on it.
Ready to drive and inspect with just a replacement wiper motor. $7k? I’ll take this over a 3500 Bro Truck Duramax.
Last night around 7pm, I hit a deer in the Volvo. Stupid thing was just chilling in the road right behind a hill crest, completely hidden from view. This road is a 45mph zone but I was only doing 35 because genre savvy. Yet I STILL hit the bastard, probably around 25 after I slammed on the brakes a moment before…
For $16k, this thing is worth the asking just for the chassis and drivetrain. Looks in reasonable shape to live in too, costs about as much as a year of rent in a lot of big cities. I’d be all over it if I had a place to park it.
We start off with a strangely specific section of frame cut out of a mid-90s F-250. Moving on...
For anyone wanting a compact lithium-ion jump box, I was recently sent this Suaoki U18 to review by a manufacturer representative. Thought I’d put it through its paces to determine if it’s worth the asking price of $90, or about $72 after a 20% off coupon available now on amazon.
It comes in this great little case…
Came across this while riding my bicycle to the D&L trail the other day. It was so clean I just had to stop and take a photo. Cleanest 1980s S10 I’ve seen in the past decade at least. It had an automatic, sadly. But it has “Durango” written under the S10 badge, must have been some kind of trim package.
The new Hot Wheels casting vs the Tomica Limited Vintage Neo from last year, direct photo comparison. This is after I used the hot water trick to mostly-straighten the wing on the HW casting.
Found this guy (along with a few other survivors) amongst a pile of my old toys that have been sitting in a wet, moldy root cellar for the past 13 years. She weathered it remarkably well, with just a few discolorations on the frunk.
Just found this guy on the mainline pegs today while trying to track down the Circuit Legends cars, boy what a looker. The graphics, the wheels, the roll bar with light bar, and that trophy truck reverse rake. Love it. Probably my favorite new mainline casting of this year.
...Yeah, that door ain’t scrubbing itself. Rain just makes it look dingier.
I saw this driving in town today. YES, that is a dually missing one of its left rear wheels:
I want this and I don’t know why
Watched it pull into the parking lot. The engine sounded just like the m10 in my old E30. Clattery valvetrain and all.
A rare opportunity when my Volvo wasn’t parked adjacent, so snapped this pic of a very long truck taking up most of my available driveway length. Takes a lot of practice to back in with cars flanking both sides, given that the connecting alleyway is only about 9 feet wide.
Took 10 seconds to load it, and about an hour with a shovel to unload it. But now I have a nice, low maintenance front ‘yard’
