My truck is an '03 "FORD" F-550 4x4 6.0L diesel dually. Custom made color matched contractor's cap on the bed and full extension tool storage drawers mounted in the bed. "That's where I keep my 'on-hand all the time' tools and carpenter's apron."
For the job-site I have an 8 1/2'w X 22'L tandem-axle trailer with a complete mini work shop set up inside.
The left side is set up with my 12" Ridgid miter saw with 10' extensions, Bench top drill press mounted in the front left corner, bench top jointer in the rear left corner, 13" surface planer on the right side, below storage for all drills, pneumatic nailers, hoses, routers, hand planes, hand saws, circ. saws, recip. saws, etc.
Above the miter saw is a bank of battery chargers, a cabinet with drill bits, nail/screw bins, clauking bins, misc. hand tool bins, etc.
On the right side, along the long wall, is the lumber storage rack with various sheet & board stock (mostly to carry what I need on the job.)
Stored above the lumber rack is my brake. Also mounted inside to the roof are my 3 WING ladders.
My TS2400 is mounted on a specially designed roll-around cart, for ease of use and loading and unloading from the trailer.
The inside of the trailer has 9 - 36" - 12v (110v transformer) double tube flourescent light fixtures (strategically placed for optimum lighting.)
Mounted on the front of the trailer is a Baldor DG6E 6kw, 3000watt diesel generator (I use this to power the trailer and tools when building log homes and no power is readily available.
On top of the trailer is a ladder rack which houses my 4 (WING) adjustable scaffold planks and my pump jacks.
There is also a 110v covered plug on the exterior for plugging into an exterior elactrical source.
"FORD RULES ALL THE WAY BABY!!!!!" :cool: :D :cool: :D IMHO
well i have 2 that i will speak of here.1st is my old slow chevy a 1951 chevrolet 1/2 pickup, with all stock body work and paint inside has the stock dash and seat but now has a tilt wheel and costom door panels. under the hood is a 454 with a 5-71 blower and tiwn 425 cfm demon carbs. well maybe it isn't so slow after all :D but most people think it is all stock till i start it up hehe. the 2nd is really just my company advertizment. a 1973 ford f-250 this one have a 390 325 hp c6 auto dana 44 rear restored to 100%stock. i made a ladder rack that looks good on it i found an old homelite generater that looks to be around that time frame, an old porter cable model 315 circuler saw (late 60s early 70s)and a few other hand tools that look the era my company name is on the doors and tail gate. i am still looking for a wooden latter to put on the rack to complete the "look" i'm going after. though not the best looking truck in the world but it always turns heads
I have a 74 Challenger, factory rally edit. It has full instrumentation, inc. 60 second analog clock. buckets and console, and factory slapshift.It also has a twin air induction hood, and powering this sweet ride is a 1969 Hi Compression 340cu in.
I have always had a truck of one kind or another but noyhing beets my 2000 dodge 2500 cummins diesil.
for a car I have always liked 'vettes but that new charge looks like a fun ride orange with an 01 on the sides of course.
I have a bunch of different cars trucks and motorcycles but I enjoy driving my Lincoln Blackwood as there were only 2,300 made and I get lots of looks and comments.
It's not much in the way of a truck but I have other trucks if I need a truck.
I just sold my 72 Eldorado rag top. Needed the room for other things and didn't have time to really enjoy it anymore anyway.
It was a real head turner. The hood was as long as a pool table and that big 3 inch crescent wreath hood ornament really graced the horizon around sweeping curves. The 501 CI 4bbl carb moved that huge slab of steel right along.
Those blackwoods look nice, never drove one of em though. I like the look of Fords new trucks but they are all getting redesigned in 07 again along with the Generals trucks. Have decided to wait and see what they offer before getting rid of my 03 GMC 2500HD SLT.
Here is my "fun toy" its not a car though, but Im sure we can all appreciate rebuilding something that was abandon in a feild in New Mexico, made it somehow to NY and then reborn after sitting in a WI barn.
A 1977 Kawasaki KZ 650, that now has a 1980 750 motor in.
Since we have expanded to motorcycles here are three of my Victory motorcycles. The Red Hammer has a 100 inch motor with a 6-speed tranny and a 250mm rear tire. They help me keep a smile on my face.
1980 that was my dream bike.

I was told I could drive any of the other vehicles except for that one after I blasted by in the opposite direction at 80 MPH.
