- I had all 4 wheels off the ground before the truck had 100 miles on it.

- I've driven in water that was over the hood of the car.

- The engine was running hot because the radiator was packed with clay.

- My engine compartment is still covered in mud.

- I've gone four wheeling and removed 3 and 4 inch rocks from above the frame rails later on.


Any questions?

Haha. Since you bring it up, yes the stang is in great shape. The guy I bought it from rebuilds wrecked Mustangs. He buys them from the insurance companies then puts them back together better than original. So mine had an R-Title when I bought it 3.5 years ago. Well when we were bringing it home my dad was driving it to get it insured and opened the door on a narrow street and got clipped by a pickup. Crunched my door the first day I had the car. Luckily this was post insurance. We got a new door and had it fixed. Then a year and a half ago when I came to the Academy for plebe summer, a week after I left, my little brother was driving it and showing off and did a 180 and crunched the front end. Once again the car was owned by the insurance company. The same guy that rebuilt it the first time rebuilt it again. Since the front was rebuilt, I got a new R-title and lost the front license plate black thing since PA doesn't require front plates. The first time it was wrecked was in the rear. My dad and I joke that the only thing original on the car is the passenger side door. It's a great car though!

My nice weather driver is a 2002 mustang gt convertible, once it's paid off I plan to get a chrome bumper c3 vert, preferably big block.

I also have my trusty full size 89 bronco xlt. 125,000 miles and runs great. Burns almost no oil either.

I don't know how I ended up with 2 fords, I've always been a GM and AMC guy.....
