You know what they say. grass is greener on the otherside. you get there and you found out it wasnt green grass but a trickery, just easter basket grass.

so you are wondering WTF is this nimrod talking about?
I'm talking about that one special vehicle you had that you loved and adored. But for whatever reason you got rid of it. Now in hindsight you cannot figure out what posessed you to get rid of it. Maybe it was the thought of a new car, or maybe it was a very temporary money issue or whatever.
So what was that vehicle? you dont have to discuss the reason you got rid of it, if you dont want to.
For me it was my 1982 Bronco that i swapped out the lil 302 for a built 460 big block... god i miss her.

A 1969 short bed fleetside with a 68 front clip, chevy C10, 406 smallblock, 400 B&M trans,4:11 posi,3/4 drop,disk brake conversion,shaved bumpers,filled gate.We built this truck in 8 weeks for a weekend cruiser/show toy.I bought this truck for the motor trans to build a camaro but never found one good enough to build so after my wife said do something with it or get it outta my yard we built it.I showed it from 1990-1995 then was working so much it sat in the garage till 1998, i tried to give it to my son but he did not want it so i sold it and built another car.My son to this day is kicking himself for not taking it.This truck did mid 11's in the quarter all the rollpans and tailgate fill was hand formed from flat sheet metal, i still miss it but it is what it is.

Here is one that was very recent like December 2010. 2000 7.3 8 inch lift on 38's when I bought it(Only vehicle I bought already built). I had to get rid of the chrome 20's and 38's so I went to XD addict 17x9 with Toyo open country MT 37's. She was a good looking truck messed up the tranny and transfer case also.
The day I bought her.

Now the rims are on it.

As you can tell the name has stuck.

I miss the pit bike in the bed also. Hey Rattlesnake I could still ride that even with my weight. HAHA
