I'm back again! Like, for the 800th time...

So... I hear you guys like the new Ford Raptor? I was talking with one of your very own, Brad [ThatGuy] and he mentioned that. Well, it just so happens in all of my travels, I got to do this:



and be in a pseudo-commercial for Black Magic car products:



and I got to ride in it a few times, too!



Anyway... What've I been up to? Well...

I'm now living back in Washington, DC. I have a 2008 Sport Trac Adrenalin V8, in which I have done some custom paint work on the hood, shaved the tailgate, custom exhaust, painted the calipers and tinted the windows. That's about all she is gonna get, because I'm going to trade her in on a Raptor like shown above, just in Blue and a few other options.

As for my Mustang, I still have the Mach 1, but it's now got a full suspension setup, wheels, tires, misc exterior appearance things and I'm in the process of researching either building the engine that's currently in it, or getting a Cobra motor, or an Aluminator, or a DSS, or a... The list never ends.

So. Hello to all of my LONG TIME Ranger friends, and I hope I won't keep disappearing.

I have a new job now that keeps me insanely busy. I'm in NYC right now for two weeks, previously I was in NC for a while, then I was in Maryland, then... Yeah, non-stop.

I wonder if someday my Ranger will find it's way back home here, on the R/F.

Hope to catch up with you all soon! I don't have any pictures on me of the Adrenalin, but here is one of the Mustang the last time I was home.

The cars and trucks look good. Too bad my father and I don't share the same taste in cars... He prefers his Chrystler Town and Country to my Ranger.
