My 76 IH Scout II and my 94 Bronco. Bought the bronco when I was 15 for 700 bucks and I freaking love that thing. Tore it up on the weekends in highschool because it went well and was cheap, but then it just never died. Sporting an open diff (because I stripped pinion splines hooked up to a 90 Bronco) a rusted out Skyjacker 4 inch (I bought it new five years ago and you'd think it was 15) an self oil changing 302 (it burns it faster than I can put it in) etc etc. No I am just picking it is actually a great vehicle. That thing got the frame bent in 2 places, hit a guard rail because my boyfriend can't drive, and even sprinkled rust off when you hit the horn back in the day. I have a manual Tcase that I am too busy/lazy to put in, as well as a plastic gas tank because its leaking. Yes, the Bronco has been reduced to going to check the mail and on the horses, but most others would have hauled if for scrap by now. It has a E4OD tranny which is bucking when I go across the mountains; so she is limited to the valley :)

The Scout has a 345 and is a powerhouse. I didnt realize how much of them were made of Chrysler parts until I bought it. I have a passion for the scouts, willys, first gen broncos, and some weird ones like the Volvo sugga (not that I could get my hands on one) and the old Land Rovers. It has a lot of go for such a little truck. The truck bed conversion is great. Only thing it needs is floors - I havent decided if I want to be lazy and pop rivet new ones onto the existing lip, or do it right and borrow a welder (wooop wooop wooop).

I've always loved scouts!

Lol your bronco sounds like my 91 sierra. Mine's pretty bad tho. It hasnt had the oil changed in years. It burns oil and leaks from just about everywhere. It gets low and i'll add a little oil from a bunch of half or more empty quarts of oil that are layin in the truck bed. Its like im weaning the motor off oil.

The front tires rub pretty bad when I turn at slow speeds. So when I pull into a parking spot at a gas station, it makes the typical horrible rubber hitting fender noises and everybody looks at me like I kicked their dog. I can't get rid of it tho, it been a fun truck

I love Scouts!!! Im jealous! When we were kids my dad had a 42 Willys Jeep, flatfender. So mad when he sold that...lol and a 196? Jeep Waggoneer. Fun rigs. Then when we were teenagers we got our hands on an old Mitsubishi Monterro....we tore up alot of country in that thing. We thrashed it for years and still sold it for $500...lol

Yes, they are fun. I was driving around and saw the Scout for $1200 - it had almost no rust at the time and drove great, so I brought it back from IN. I really need to get on it, but it seems like I always have too many projects or homework. The Suzuki Samari's and The Geo Trackers are also great little asian cars that are fun to tear up. LOL They make the Trackers with pink interiors...been keeping my eyes peeled for one :) Subarus are awsome asians to tear up but its too bad they are all ugly as sin. They will go though, and if they don't, hop out and push it!!

LaineyLou that mini is badass!! My step dad has 2008 Mini S and I just love that car to pieces!

I dirve a 99' Acura Integra. I didn't like it at first, but now I just can't part with. I love my car! It's put up with my cowgirl ways for the past two years and I've had no problems with it except for a few updates. I really wanted a truck but at least I can fit three bales of hay in my car lol

This is the only photo I have of it right now and it's not good at all.
I have some of the greatest friends too, if I need anything done on my car they'll do it for me :)

-Horse racing is my passion-
