Get the stock wheel back on the Riv, anyone can slap a set of aftermarket rims on. The original wheels are so cool.

Quoted from Elvisinmypants:

Trailer park background is a nice touch.

The early ones with the 1600 Kent motor were pretty good

If they would only make the new Bronco in a total stripped version it would be killer. No carpet, just rubber floor covering, hand crank windows, removable top, fold down windshield, etc. i had a 1970 pickup version that had 4:11 gears, factory no radio, bench seat. What a great rig that was.... would be worth a lot now!

Quoted from willbeEM:

enough dreaming, another picture of my '81 chevy C10 pinhauler all ready for another summer of cruising, haulin stuff, car shows and drive in movies. New for this year is brand spankin new 16" Rally rims with shiny trim rings, center caps and B.F. Goodrich Longtrail T.A's

Finally, a real pin hauler. None of this "will it fit" crap. It WILL fit.

However, you do need a canopy for all weather pin hauling...

Quoted from Yelobird:

Since I wasn't seeing much Love for the great AMC I thought I would post a picture of my 1970 AMC Gremlin. Levi interior and to the dismay of most of the high $$$ cars at the show it wins most every time. It's parked next to my recently sold 1965 Mustang. Love that AMC, sad to see them all gone. So many memories for So many people I bet....Lol

There was a dealership back in the day that was putting 401's in Gremlins. Talk about an X-package!

Quoted from girloveswaffles:

A stone bridge on the Oatman Hwy in AZ (original Rt. 66) where you REALLY want to obey the speed limit signs:

That's a cool road. Oatman is tourist trap to the max, but still great. the wild donkeys walking around town looking for handouts is hilarious.

My new toy. Thanks to Brandon ford and a very cool pinsider.

Now that is what I call a pin hauler. Nice truck. none of this "will it fit" crap.

Quoted from mikehay1:

The brothel was a cool little cabin at the campground in Moab. There was also the Jail, Bank and Mayor cabins in our little corner. Only a double bed and bunk bed with a fridge in them but then again how much room do you really need in a brothel? The red light out front didn't cut it, I was hoping for a disco ball

Moab rocks.

Quoted from gliebig:

Picked up a 17 taco today.

I have been longing after one of those for a while now... My good old '93 22RE 4x4 pickup @ 300,000+ miles is due for retirement.... but the damn thing still runs great.

Looking at a 2017 4x4 Tacoma double cab, long bed, TRD sport, automatic. Probably Charcoal metallic.
Though I do like the cement color too, but that's available only in the high zoot model.

Quoted from c508:

Compare that to this one!

I had a 1992 Previa. One of the most useful car that I ever had. My wife wants another one, but they are NLA in the U.S.

#1003 1 year ago
Quoted from pinmister:

I just picked up a new pin-hauler, it's a 2018 Toyota Tacoma TRD in cement color.

Cool, been eyeing that exact Tacoma to replace my trusty 305,000 mile 1993 Toyota 4x4 pickup.
The damn thing just won't die.
Love the color "cement" - is that a long or short bed?

#1006 1 year ago

That color is my 2nd choice behind cement. Looks sweet, but I'm a bit concerned about paint fade over time with it. I tend to keep my cars forever - bought my '93 new, still driving it.
That & my wife said that I would look like an old guy trying to look young (?)

It is a bad ass color though.........

#1018 1 year ago
Quoted from danisme:

Love my Tacoma. This is my third one. Had a red 2005 4x2 then upgraded to a white 4x4 in 2007 and this one is an "inferno" color 2017. Gotta be able to haul the toys around.

Toyota pickups rock!
Had a nice stock 1983 SR5 4x4 22R 5-spd, then bought a new 1993 Dlx extra cab 4x4 22RE 5-spd.
About to pull the trigger on a new 2018 TRD dbl cab 4x4 automatic in Cement w/ 6' bed....

#1089 1 year ago
Quoted from pinmister:

Well the family sold the 1969 C10 with 77K miles years ago because it was not an ideal vehicle for the modern family. It made the garage stink like gasoline all the time and was not very practical. Sold it to an owner of large ranch, now it gets used the way it should.

Umm, that's a Ford F-series....

#1104 1 year ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

That's what I thought, thanks. Here's my buddies Mustang at Daytona this past December, I shot video and was crew for him and the ride along was unbelievable.

Love the color - my dad bought a 1970 F150 Ford pickup in that same color. Always liked that...

Quoted from PW79:

They see me roll’n
They hate’n

Love our '07 Toyota Sienna. Three of us pinheads roll to the PNW show every year in it. Comfortable, decent power, & room to bring home a pin or two if need be.

#1204 1 year ago

2018 tayota (Medium) (resized).jpg

Newest pin hauler -- 2018 Tacoma TRD Sport, 4x4, double cab, 6' bed.
Canopy to be added shortly for all weather pin hauling

#1207 1 year ago
Quoted from MrBally:

Here's a cast, versus forged, connecting rod failure and associated engine block and bevel gear case damage when a connecting rod bolt fails and slowly allows the rod to fatigue and snap.
VW/Audi 1.8L Turbo engine.

I used to look forward to seeing that kind of stuff come in back when we had a machine shop. Made it easy to decide what cars to stay away from once you saw a pattern of destruction.

#1218 1 year ago
Quoted from pinmister:

Best truck ever made!
I do have a word of advice...my 2018 Tacoma windshield just got hit by a rock on the highway and cracked the windshield. I called my aftermarket windshield guy I have used in the past to inquire about a new windshield. He told me that it is too new for aftermarket and that the lane changing departure radar system on the windshield requires re-calibration. Long story short it is going to cost me nearly $1200 for a new factory windshield with re-calibration. I about shit my pants, I am used to paying $250 for a new windshield. I also found out that the dealer offers a windshield protection plan for $399 for 5 years. After I spend $1200 on a fricking windshield I will fork over $399 for the warranty. If you have not gotten the windshield warranty-call the dealership and have it added on before you are in the same boat as me ):

Good to know. Does not your insurance cover that?

Fiero GT. So much potential!!

They had bad engine compartment fire issues with those Fieros. Good-looking car though....

#1464 1 year ago

I have driven a manual transmission car daily since 1978 - until this year. Currently in a 2018 Tacoma TRD Sport 4x4 auto & loving it. Manuals can be fun, but I'm done with them in a daily driver.

#1481 1 year ago
Quoted from pinmister:

\. I also have a 2018 Tacoma TRD sport and I would never buy a truck with a manual transmission. Why would you? Both of my trucks are automatics, but to me a sports car should be a manual to maximize the enjoyment while driving.
Still loving my STI, rowing through the 6 gears with turbo boost is what puts a smile on my face (;

On a side note, what color did you opt for on the Tacoma? I went with Magnetic grey metallic, but now wish that I would have chosen Inferno orange..... wife says the more subdued color is more fitting for an older guy such as me (59), & that the wilder orange would make me look like an old guy trying to look cool.

Quoted from Atari1977:

It's not capable of hauling much of anything, but this is my 1936 Dodge D2 coupe that's been in my family since it was new.[quoted image][quoted image]

Love the 30's cars. Such style!

#1681 10 months ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

Wow, that sooooo cool. That has got to be a Pinside record for ownership. I'm waaaay behind you at only 48 1/2 years.

Had my '64 Thunderbird convertible since 7/5/78...

Just sold my 1968 Galaxie 428 GT

All it needed was a set of factory steel wheels & hubcaps

Quoted from robertmee:

My 68 Firebird[quoted image]

I swear EVERY '68 Firebird was that green color. Had a buddy who bought a '68 Firebird 400 (in that color), 4-speed, manual drum brake, manual steering. Would go pretty good, but just make sure you have room to stop.
Oh. he paid $870 & it still had the factory hubcaps. This was back in 1979 or thereabouts.
