    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.

    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 **** 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..

    @Boatme I see you had a '77 caddie too, I grew up in one of those... My dad use to race horses, and wanted something comfortable to pull horses with and me being a young lad, something without rear doors to fall out of. You should of seen the looks we got driving up in a 2 door Cadillac pulling a 2-horse trailer...

    BTW... '77 was Cadillacs 75th anniversary....;)

    '69 Chevy C10, ended up with the Nova motor after a timing chain incident.
    '79 Chevy Z28 Camaro, lost in divorce in '84.
    '74 Ford Pinto station wagon to get by after losing Camaro
    '84 Ford BroncoII
    '86 Chevy Camaro

    @ Trez: The Scout II's are...well...*modern* by Scout 80 standards. They both have their merits.
    You would be a rare bird (probably a desert rat) if you drove a Scout 80 on a daily basis today. I was a rare bird when I drove one! haha
    I did love the Comanche engine but the 304 is a real good power plant too.
    I guess it's rare (at least around here) to see anyone drive a Scout II on a daily basis.
    I know of exactly 1 that I see parked in a driveway, registered and on the road and it is a cream puff that I missed a chance to buy years ago by about 1 week. It was a barn find and a Texas truck. :)
    My Scout II had near 300K miles on it when I sold it, so you never know.
