This is my family's Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro.
Yeah, I am a 3rd generation San Diegan but my family has been all over the west since I can remember. I want to move to Oregon pretty badly to escape California. I do have some trepidation about it though, because of prevailing attitudes like that.
This is kinda what my 6bt Bronco will be....minus the tracks. He has a cool vid on his channel showing how to retrofit door gaskets from a newer truck into the 78-79 trucks too.Turn the music off and enjoy this golden oldie. If I gotta go snow sled style, this would be my choice.
Truth be told... I've done the same or better with my Duratracs in the old '90 FSB.
Wish they didn't always have to cut them 🙁 i like stock so much betterBefore that job I could say that about automotive work (I've used some long stuff in plumbing work). But at that stage I was a few days in & was ready for a win. And with the long cheater I could apply lots of steady pressure without having to bounce it. I had already broken the stud for the front shock, which is why I was pulling it apart. It actually went pretty easily at that point.
I had used Liquid Wrench penetrant for years, but had swapped to PB Blaster by then. And heat from a torch when needed. But I didn't want to heat front end components. I hadn't found Deep Creep yet. If I ever have to do the other side I'll try DC. I probably oughta start soaking it now...
And for a random pic, how about Big Oly from Fabulous Fords Forever a few years ago?
Well, although that one's far from stock, it's not exactly "cut". It's a glass body on a custom frame & suspension. The body is narrowed & sectioned. It won the Mexican 1,000 back to back (now the Baja 1,000) with Parnelli Jones at the wheel in 71 & 72.
We used to put 2 inch pieces of plastic from our model car trees down the barrel in front of the bb..... until one stuck in my older brothers leg and mom took our BB guns away for 2 weeks.I grew up having BB gun "wars" with the neighborhood kids.
We didn't take it to school though.
That's where we'd stab each other with pencils and breaks the tips off.
That literally made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. I've gotten a treble hook embedded in the meat of the palm of my thumb. Not too bad till you go tugging on it. But that! Uuugh gives me the willies
Haha. We had walnut fights with the kids in the house across the street. Not much pain involved since I was 6 when we moved from there. We were at a disadvantage because they had a tree & our only ammo was what landed after they threw it. Until we discovered the nuclear option of dipping walnuts in what the dog left in our yard. That ended the war right there. Hit a kid with a dog poo walnut & he's just not having fun anymore.Lol we had walnut fights... similar concept to a snowball fight but it hurt more.
