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.

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!
