Just wanted to start a fun little thread to see what all "toys" everyone enjoys in the meantime while we wait on Bronco.

Im a big motorcycle guy myself. I really enjoy building them and tinkering with anything powered by a small engine. Currently I have a 2012 Aprilia Shiver 750, 2002 Honda Shadow 750, & 2016 Kawasaki STX-15F. Also have a 14ft Jon w/ a 20hp Mercury for chasing fish when the kayak can't get me there. Past toys include owning: 1991 CB250, 2011 CBR600RR, 1996 Polaris SLTX 1050. Building: 2001 Shadow 750, 2000 Harley 883, 1968(?) VW rail buggy, 1973 Bellanca prop plane.

82 Bronco, 513 ci; 71 mach 1, 351C; 06 F-250, 6.0; 56 800, 172c.i. gas
Well, I am currently trying to fix my daily driver, been off the road for 6 months now. 2006 F-250, 6" lift, slightly built engine (turbo, bored, 130cc injectors stock nozzle, EGR delete, bulletproofed, few other minor maintnance mods), on 37x13.5s

next project is to wrap up a 2 month project on the bike I started 2 years ago, 2002 roadstar 1600 I am bobbing.

next project is to rebuild the 56 ford 840 tractor, swap to a diesel engine. she flooded in 2016 and has been sitting on the back of the property since, also needs a new hood...thats gonna cost.

after that. THE BRONCO. my 82. 513 ci stroked 460. 11.5:1 compression, very build top end, and well built bottom end. 0.080 over, roller cam, worked the heads and studded them, ported. big ass carb, lots of power, and turns 7k RPM. sitting on 4.56 geared 1/2 ton axles, those can't hold. she needs 1 tons or bigger, in which case she's going from 38s to 44s or 54s depending on what axles she gets.

Then there is the mustang. 71 mach 1, needs a full rebuild. the stroked 460 in the bronco is a test motor for what goes into the mustang. Except the broncos motor is an 87 250 block, the mustang will likely get an ARC or similiar stronger aftermarket block that can be better balanced.

And somewhere in there I need to fit building a 60x80 shop. I will be fixing my current 40x30 this weekend, some of the roof blew off this winter.

while my DD is down I am driving a 2002 T-bird, top down every time if it is over 65F and not raining.

Also have a 2016? 4runner, she'll get traded in in 2023 for a 4dr bronco. plans are to add a 2021 mach 1 and 2022 2dr bronco in the mean time.

Currently driving a 2012 Jeep JK Sport ( will be my daughter's ride soon) and a 2006 Dodge charger RT (will be my son's ride soon). Giving both of these up for a Bronco as long as it turns out as sweet as it's sounding to be.

1970 Mustang Coupe, have had it 20 yrs or so, i'm 41 now. Original block 30 over, aluminum pistons, motor rebuilt myself. Originally an auto C4 converted to standard with a World Class T5, hydraulic clutch. FI Tech fuel injection. Nothing too crazy but a fun driver and completely home built....

built not bought! I'm proud to say I've never paid to have any work done on her.

I play with 1/10 scale toys. It’s much cheaper that way. LoL.


PS, check out that great IFS performance on the Sierra at the end!

Toys...I like toys...lol

I like pew pew noise makers. Have somewhere between not enough and too many. Built a awesome 1911 using a wilson combat in the white frame and slide as my base then added/fitted wilson, brown, C&S components. Came out awesome and pew pews amazingly I am most proud of this one in the pew pew category. Not sure on the pew policy but will refrain from posting images to be safe.

My toy I have had the longest as an "adult" is my 1994 mustang gt I bought in May of 1999 at almost 22yrs old. It was stock when purchased. It ran a stock 1/4 time of a sleepy 15.3. Added 3.73 gears, bumped the timing to 14*, under drive pulleys and dropped the tire pres to 26-27lbs and ran a 14.3...then added a 125 shot of N2O and ran a 13.1 @107 with a 1.92 or 1.93 60ft on street tires...no DR's.

Current setup is a DSS 306 pro bullet short block, GT40 heads off a 95 cobra milled .065 portedrunning comp springs, ported explorer GT40 intake, TFS stage 1 cam (.499/.510 w 1.6rockers), 80mm MAF off a 96-98 GT/Cobra, 24lb injectors, MSD ignition, compucar wet kit noids using a N.O.S nozzle and 150hp jets, Tuned by myself using a TweekerRT, full length weld in sub frame conn, lower trq box reinforcements, UPR upper and lower control arms, Bullett shocks/strust and springs, 99+ twin piston front PBR calipers, 03 cobra front A arms, and recently added Caster Camber plates. NA it runs with 12.8/13.1 cars...on bottle...just smiles... No valid 1/4 times as last time at track was sorting out some issues and narrowed it down to the valve-train...ran a 13.9 @ 101 shifting at 3,500rpm. Replaced the lifters and properly measured for custom length push rods and much better.

It's a rental, but this is where most of my transportation budget goes:

These are my daily drivers when the weather is decent:

But this is my best time, which is why I want the Bronco. It's who you get to spend time with while enjoying your toys:
