    ...and I'm thinking, no. I've wanted an old C10 pickup for a while, and found one in the same color scheme I had as my first vehicle/dad's old pickup. It's cool and all, but I think I'm past the rust repair/body work phase of project vehicles and just want something more to tinker with.

    Here she's offering a vehicle, and I'm thinking, well, there's a Gobi rack on Craigslist...for all the overlanding I never do.

    I know! I sold my ‘67 Cougar a little over a year ago and have been antsy for another project.

    Got any pics of the Merc? I've always liked those. I have a father/son project that seems like a mostly father project lately. o_O

    oh, of course! When it comes to the next project, I’m thinking in terms of what car/truck would I let force the 4Runner to lose its garage space. I don’t think the C20 is it.

    ^Wish I could like this more than once! Beautiful ride. XR-7? Love the Torque Thrusts. They look good on almost everything!

    Thanks! Dan Gurney Special. I really liked the Cougar. Fun car, fun cruiser, it was just time to move on. My wife likes Mustangs, so I can see trying to pick one up in the next year or two.
