And after I moved several of my nicer pieces, I got a new Kuat rack and carbon Trek bike, so it’s being used a lot more. This will be my last big purchase for a while, until the wife gets back to work...

SO COOL! Keep it if you can, looks great.

Those older Tojo's are becoming collectable these days and the prices are on the way up!... Here in Australia they have always been at the top of the 4x4

They made those about 10mi away from where I am. My g-pa joined IH after Korean War and retired from there. Never saw him have a scout- too bad he didn’t get one.

American history! I always wanted a Scout, but never made it happen. As I recall they were using the AMC powertrain.
Nope!... Only a few were offered with an optional 6 cylinder and they used an AMC 6 but they are pretty rare, mostly they had an International V8 304,345,392
Truck Motor and in 1980 you could order with a Nissan 6 diesel !

Meet my new girl, Sally.

My GLI spent half the time I owned it in the shop, so she went back to VW. The “Made in Mexico” VW wasn’t up to the quality standards of my prior German build VW’s.

After a few months, the replacement is this Mustang. I went with the Ecoboost model and she’s darned fast as it comes from the factory. I negotiated some upgrades from the Ford Performance division; to include their performance pack and sport (Borla) exhaust. She’ll have 345 hp & 425 tq when these are done. It’s a fantastic car.

Thanks fellas.

Jason - here’s an excellent comparison of stock vs Ford / Borla.

Thx. 10 speed auto. The trans was developed in partnership with GM and used across both companies. So far, from what I can see, it’s sturdy and efficient. Shifts are crisp and the auto is better in shitty traffic.

If that's the same 10-speed auto they use in the Camaro, it's excellent.

Febreze doesn’t sell a car air freshener with Poon scent.

Have you seen the back of the Mustang? I’m 6’3 280 So there will be no backseat shenanigans.

Ya, they're fun, considering the second hand market prices.
IS250

The guy before me had a muffler delete and cold air intake installed. It makes a nice noise hehe.
