    I'm still here

    I've got my license now, but I don't drive as my daily driver (1983 AMC EAgle Wagon) blew a rear main seal, now my dad said he'd buy me a new engine, since the current one has almost 200K on the odometer, I'm getting a late 242 HO I6 from a Jeep (AMC Designed the engine, and it is almost the smae block as the 258 which is curently in my Eagle), I won't keep the fuel injection as you can get better mileage from these with a carburetor (or so I hear).

    I still ride everywhere, and when I drive, I drive a big V8 muscle truck (1995 F150 XLT 302 Auto), I blew the trans a while ago and now there is a "new" (junkyard, but well inspected) transmission. I drive her a lot, I want Posi for her, but can't afford it as I barely get any money where I work, and I never get to work even 10 hours a week.

    Still have the Sting-Ray, but she's awaiting repairs as the fropnt fender came off today while I was riding her.

    A 302 in an F150 is not a muscle truck. It barely gets out of its own way.

    That aside, I've always wanted a Sting Ray. And I've always kinda thought the Eagles were cool, even if they are ugly. I'd have an AMX in a second though.

    I know, but she does have some kick, I can spin tires pretty easily when shes runnin well, I will hop her up just a little bit


    I would kill for an AMX, I'd trade both of my Egales for them (truck's not mine to sell though)

    The nice thing about the 302 is it responds to bolt ons fairly well. 300-400 horsepower is not too much to expect with stock internals.
