That thing looks sweet! I can’t believe you drove it all the way from Nevada!
😂 I was mostly worried about buying the gas, but yeah - I figured why not give it a shot. The truck radio only seemed to pick up 80's rock & country stations... but I saw that as a bonus.That thing looks sweet! I can’t believe you drove it all the way from Nevada!
Welcome to our Big Bronco DIY site!
Yes, your 85 does look great!
Here is some info for you;
Sweet. I guess you've established it runs and drives good.
It’s the lighting. It’s a midnight blue hard top.😂 I was mostly worried about buying the gas, but yeah - I figured why not give it a shot. The truck radio only seemed to pick up 80's rock & country stations... but I saw that as a bonus.
Honestly it was great - just kept it easy and never went over 65 on the drive... just 2,100 miles and five national parks later: boom I was home.😂
(deleted my soft topper question - I was squinting at your avatar and then saw it in full size and realized it was a black hard top just like mine. disregard!)
I'm near the middle just outside of Austin. Luckily didn't have to cross the whole thing...It’s the lighting. It’s a midnight blue hard top.
Are you in west Texas, or did you cross the state too?
You’re 100% right: definitely cheating! 😂🤣😂At least mechanical speaking. I did the plugs and wires this weekend and braced myself for contacts covered in charred oil and metal debris (as I’m used to from other projects) but no…. Just normal wear.Very nice! Looks like it doesn't need much work...that's cheating. 🤣 Awesome way to get it home. That should be a thread of it's own.
I'm in Lampasas but drive to ATX a couple times a week...I'll keep an eye out for it on the road.
