79 f100 300 six 4 speed absolutly the worst handeling thing ive ever drivin

bumps at speed would put you in the other lane so i had to let go of the wheel and pray it would continue on track , it did btw

clutch so hard it gave me a knee problem im still

dealing with after 11 years , loose exhaust from head pipe to cat would seperate i had to reconnect it all the time if i flexed or shifted to hard it would

let go,it was really fun to do when i saw a ****** in a lexus on the phone at a light and could hear him over my radio (monster truck loud)can you hear me now?

i still miss her though

The truck was not fast but it was strong as an ox.

My friend just bought a 90 TT 300ZX for 2700 bucks with 130K on it. The only thing wrong with it is that it overheats after a half hour runnin it. It's got rust residue where the coolant cap is giving me a clue that the whole system is nastyfied. Very nice car, especially in 2nd gear and the boost hits. Talk about eyes wide open LOL!

That was my buds, he was pushing about 600 out of it, even though it didn't look like it (he liked it that way ). He sold it to some kid who totaled it within 2 weeks of owning it. Such a sad day

that 79 ford i had took good care of me , driving in gravel drifting around a turn (the first and only time)it spun and slammed the rear into the ditch at 30mph instead of the front totally against the laws of physics three more times it spun me or i spun it and nearly died or wrecked in fantastic ways but we both came out unscathed

with the unboosted brakes , manual steering and ultra heavy clutch pedal , saving my life is one of the few reasons though why i miss her.

Those are great looking cars.

Got to love it when people who think they can drive just because they can e-brake slide their civic buy a car that's actually quick and immediately get a reality check. Too bad the car usually dies in the process. Same thing happened to my dad's 383 four speed Challenger when he sold it. People are idiots.
