Daily driver : 2016 Mustang GT , it has about 17k miles on it now, I plan on keeping it at least until the new S650 Mustang comes out which should be around 2021/2022. At which point, I’ll decide if I want get a new one or keep this one, add a supercharger and turn it into a weekend cruiser and maybe get a more grown-up car to daily.
Beater : 1997 F-150 , it has about 86k on it, doesn’t get driven much, just mainly to the dump, and when it snows. I has low mileage for it’s age, but it’s age is starting to catch up with it, every year it seems to need some manner of evap line replaced, I suspect that the critters chew on the rubber lines while it sits for weeks on end, and there’s a small amount of visible rust on the lower sills. I’ve had the truck for about 15 years now and didn’t pay much for it when I got it. I’ll replace it when it starts nickel and diming me constantly, With another 5-6 year old truck. I’d love find a low-mileage 2005-2007 F-250/350 V10.
Ongoing Project : 1974 Triumph TR6, it’s been in the family since new. My father and myself have been restoring it off and on over the past decade or so. We redid the interior, rebuilt the seats, new carpet, new dash pad, new wooden dash,etc. We took the body off the frame and fabricated two new crossmembers to replace the ones that had rusted away. New front shocks, new rebuilt lever shocks in the back, new brakes, chased down (but did not fully eradicate) some electrical gremlins, new clutch a few new trim pieces and so on. Right now, it needs paint (it’s not in primer or anything, it was repainted in the mid 80’s but it needs to be repainted again. it needs a top that’s the right color, the original lasted until the early 90’s the replacement top is still in working order, but for some reason my dad got a tan top instead of the correct black top. The carbs are leaking air (they were rebuilt in the early 90’s but could use another rebuild. The car has 95k miles on it, so the entire engine could likely use a refresh after 40+ years. These cars have been steadily appreciating over the last decade. So throwing $15k at it for new paint, rechroming the bumpers, and an engine rebuild wouldn’t be a totally irresponsible thing at this point. I plan on keeping this car forever.
