My new ride; 1970 M35A2, able to burn nearly anything you put in the tank!

Hoping to add a crew cab and box in the bed for hauling gear and sleeping.

Please ignore my shack... I have a nicer house down the 'holler, but there's no broadband access there.....



1984 F-150, 300 straight 6, 3 on the tree, 2.57 rear axle, 2wd. 498,000 miles, never rebuilt. Need to rebuild the motor this summer, as the compression is a bit low. $300. Not a rock-crawler for sure, but decent gas mileage paved-road hauling machine, for something of its vintage. It has a Carter YF feedback carb on it at the moment, but I have an old 2bbl out in the shed for converting to woodgas if needed.




1980 CB400 UJM, CB450C frontend, GM automotive coils, old czech sidecar mounted with some bits of scrap metal, converted to dual-sport off-road duty. $450 non-running before rebuild. 45-50 mpg depending on how much of a hurry I am in. Max speed of 60 mph loaded, but it goes through dirt, gravel, rocks, mud, water, snow, ice (with 1/4" sheetmetal screws in the knobs for studs), sand (but not quite as well) with almost vicious aplomb. Hauls a ton of crap in the coffin, especially without the seat.

I'm working on a better highway sidecar machine. Once it is done, I might pull the coffin off the s/c frame, weld together a platform, and try to build a woodgas generator on there, just to see if I can do it. Having two carbs will make the gas feed a little more complex though, I think.

I didn't know xterra's were front wheel drive. I thought they were all 4wd, no?

two many vans right now... one for work (99 Dodge Caravan) for hauling myself, carpet cleaning gear around

Another is a handicap access van, (2000 Dodge Caravan) with a 10" lowered floor and power ramp that comes out the passenger side door.

and 86 25' Class C RV, about ready to get it on the road again, at least to relocate it to a more southern location

and lastly a 97 Geo Tracker, 4wd, standard 5 sp to tow behind the RV and possibly use to get to remote locations for prospecting or ???

Trying to keep them all fueled up right now, just in case..... the RV has about a half tank for now (25 gal) the Tracker is just about full, the others are driven daily and levels are up and down, but trying to make it a point now to keep the top half filled, incase there is a problem, I want enough fuel to get somewhere

I hope/plan to use either the 2000 with the lowered floor or one similar to it to do a minivan RV build, I think if it goes well, I will do a second with an electric conversion.

anyone have any experience converting gas vehicle to electric, contact me... I want to learn more...

the RV only has a Chevy 350, which is a little under powered for it's size and weight, especially if towing another, even a light vehicle behind.

the Tracker has the "better" 16 valve 4sp, is a soft top, but is a little rust bucket, that I basically traded a scrap vehicle for... but runs, so at the very least, I can sell it and put the money towards something else whenever I want.

picked up a 2 wheel, car dolly as well, someone basically wanted it out of the yard. so I help him out.... will likely have to clean his carpets a couple times, just to make sure he's happy with me having it. (although, he delivered it already, so I guess the deal is actually already complete....) just needs a couple plastic fenders replaced and the wiring for the lights gone through (his dog liked to chew.....)

nice El Camino, I always wanted one, but never got around to it, and have since figured if anything, I'ld go with the smaller foreign version, the Subaru Brat, or more recent, even better model, the Baja.... I was dissapointed that they didn't make it for more than three years, and when it first came out, I got a chance to sit in one at a car show... side by side with a H2 hummer.... and found the Baja to be more roomy inside and like the styling much better

it's a shame that GM didn't continue offering the El Camino, and wouldn't mind seeing it being re introduced using some of the newer vehicles, but since they have the smaller pickups, I guess they think it wouldn't be worth making...

too bad they can't actually check with the public before making up their minds (if that's what actually use now days....)
