Hm, not one 4X4. Think I'll have to remedy that soon.

I know there were a few more, but they'll come to me later. I've owned some vehicles a couple of days and the longest about 10 years.

Wow I havent had that many and I can barely remember these...

'40 Ford Deluxe Coupe.... Still have it, but never have gotten to drive it, some bastard stole my carbs!:mad:

'80-something Chevy 1/2 ton pickup
'81 Pontiac Grand Prix
'73 International 1110 1/2 pickup... The greatest vehicle ive ever owned, bought it for $300 and drove it for years, I still have it and it runs!!
'97 Cadillac Seville..... My first and last "nice" car... Bought it off a old lady with 50,000 miles on it, killed it by 100,000 :(
'92 Honda Accord.... Was told by "everybody" Toyotas and Hondas run forever... Killed it in a month, so much for that... :confused:
'73 International Scout... Always wanted one (it was the reason I got my first IH) I love it, but doors and a roof would be nice....

The 1980 was my daily driver for over a decade.
Great memories of road tripping in the sunshine with my Grandfather in his later years with the convertible top down. :D

Neil, actually my plan right now is to sell the 97 Ford p/u and one of the Towncars and pick up a Scout.

I think that's a fine idea.
I really enjoyed my Scouts.

My best friend had one at the time too and we would often *Go Scoutin'* after work, meaning we would hang out at his farm and work on our trucks.

We also scrounged in bone yards every chance we got looking for old IH vehicles and buying spares of all types by the truckload.
That was back a few years when the junkyards let you have free reign with your tools to pick and pull whatever struck your fancy.
Now its mostly *cover your ass* from liability.

I've traveled all over God's green pea patch looking for parts and abandoned trucks or to chase down a Scout sighting. It paid off once in awhile but was mostly just plain fun!

NAPA gals knew me by my first name, the used car lots called me if an IH came in and old farmers pointed me toward more parts than I can remember.

Good times. :D

Did you like the "old" style Scout or the Scout II better? Right now I drive a Scout II but have a scout 80 I want to fix up (it has the folding windshield, which I miss from my Samurai)
Crap! see I knew I forgot something.. Add a '86 Suzuki Samurai to the list... It was never really a driver, just a toy for out in the desert...

Same here Im known for collecting IH's "dead or alive".... Ive saved a few from the crusher.. The last 2 Scouts I got were from a scraper, and I had both running in 15 minutes. I cant believe they were going to be crushed!! :eek: I parted out the 800 and kept the 80 for a future project..
