Here is my current daily driver, a '92 Dakota, 2.5 TBI, 5 speed, that I affectionately call "The Duck-ota".
I got it from my friend Richard Brown for some cash and some body work on his '70 Challenger convertible. As you can see from the pics of his car, I should have paid all cash. ;-)
But even still, it's a great truck. Right now it has 170,000+ miles on it, so I'm considering what to do next. I'm starting to rebuild another engine, but of course I can't leave well enough alone. The new engine is going to be a 2.5 Turbo I. I think the truck will scoot along just fine. Here is the block before reassembly.
I was at the dump one day in 2001, unloading some stuff that I didn't need, and all of a sudden a fork lift driver decided to run into me. Needless to say, his boss was real unhappy to write me a check..... :-)
Jump forward in time, and the truck has been "well used", but just won't die. So now it's time to do something nice to it -- paint it!!
RATS!! It came out too dry and rough. Here we go again.......
OK, NOW IT'S PAINTED. Note the reflection of my Belvidere in the Dakota's 1/4 panel. ME LIKES IT!!! :-)
