So its almost 2013 and what better way to enter a new year then with a new project.

so i picked up a 88 honda accord did some work to it dumped money fixing things,

then i traded that for a wrecked 95 ford ranger Plus some cash and another 2000 ranger.. fixed up the white ranger

( rear ended and front end wreck plus it didnt run) and painted it and then traded it for this 97 F250.

The honda i traded.








Damge the ranger had







Shes a beater heres a list of things it needs:

1997 Ford F250 xl single cab, Long bed. 4WD independant axle.

Needs a bed, all dinged up.
tires are too big and rub.
