wow some cool projects, i only have a few

1991 acura integra ( no pics, but was heavily modded 99 civic si engine, 3 stage clutch, adjustable coilovers, etc...) learned the lesson about keeping it comfortable to drive on the road lol drove me crazy till i sold it. No pics of this one.

2000 camaro 3.8l v6, 5spd (loved this car had it in highschool and learned alot about cars with it)

2006 cbr600f4i (fun fast street bike, traded in towards my bmw. Its tons of fun but risky on the road with other drivers.)

1995 suburban k1500 (great truck, started my passion for offroading, trucks, etc..sold it to a buddy for dirt cheap so i had someone to go wheeling with lol)

1992 k2500 suburban 454tbi, 4l80e, 14boltff (my current truck, can pull anything, gets most places pretty well offroad. Ill probably never sell this one and just keep upgrading)

1940 plymouth deluxe (current project still a ways to go, going to make it a nice comfortable cruiser for me and my girlfriend)

2000 bmw 328ci (great little car, 5spd, fun to drive and good mpg. Probably going to keep it stock so i always have a reliable dd when im working on other projects.)

I had a first gen. B2200 long bed when they came out in '87, bought it in early '88. Sold it off after 4 yrs and 145K miles, spent all of it's life delivering pizza and playing in the mtn's, I had a 1.5" t-bar crank and 31's. Sold it off when the engine needed rebuilt because it wouldn't pass emissions. Got so good at pulling the trans (5 spd) I could pull it, replace the clutch, and have it back on the road in under 2 hrs.
