Parents 2008 Ford F-150 FX4

Went over to my parents house today and while I was there I snapped some pictures of their some what new truck.

They got this a couple months ago for 16k, it has 52k miles on it and just about loaded with every option one can get on it.



Came with Linex Bed liner already in it

Black leather interior with floor shifter.

Sorry I got tired last night and said f it ill upload them pics tomorrow lol.

This is my dads 87 GMC 2500 with the 454 Big Block, Automatic. Originally came with manual locks and windows. But since the bottom of the doors were rusted out we replaced them and the new ones had power locks/windows. The interior we have installed suburban buckets and center console. New dash pad, repainted interior trim and recovered headliner. Body work on the exterior is almost complete and should be going to the paint shop next month. As the for the engine all we've done is install a new carb and a complete tune up. Truck sat in a field up in Greeley for 10 years with the windows wide open, my dad got it in a trade back in March and been working on it non stop since. It even drove itself out of the field after some gas and a new battery.









And his 1984 Buick Grand National. It also had been sitting in a field out in Kansas from 1991 until 2009.The engine, tranny and rear end have all been gone through. The engine has a performance cam, piston, rods, and to much for me to remember right off the top of my head. Eibach 1" lowering performance springs. It'll be going to the upholstery shop and paint booth by February, hopefully sooner.







And here's a pic of the 84 Buick Regal T-Type he built 5 years ago.

Actually 85 and older Grand Nationals and T-Types were not intercooled. They were hot air turbos. In late 85 or early 86 can not remember which. GM added the intercooler, changed the turbo around and added electric fans.

As seen here, this is the engine compartment on an 86 and a 87 Grand National.

I know. I've got an 87.
Many die hards won't call anything not intercooled a Grand National. Most times we just call them T-types when the club i roll with gets together.

LOL, don't worry by the end of the next summer it's going to have a bigger turbo and will be intercooled.
