No I haven't but glass or steel would be my first choice.

That sounds like some fun there

I didn't even look at this one. 34' glass.

https://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/au...11&trackId=292

This auction is closed and didn't even bring the $1k minimum.

I like the I6. It has its quirks but it is very reliable.

coworker of mimne has an F-150 with the I6 and i think 330,000 miles now(maybe more).. the truck is rusting out around it.. the dash is falling apart from sun rot.. the compression is so low that you cant park it on a driveway in first gear anymore without it rolling down.. but the thing still starts and runs great, doesnt smoke, and the A/C is ICE COLD. (never been charged).. the motor has never been opened up at all.. just valve cover gasket replaced a couple times..

The Dodge slant six was the 300,000 mile machine when I was growing up.

I'm partial to the Molars. Slant six vans are rare mostly cause it was an option. But that magnum 318 (5.2) is very reliable and fuel wise as well

I was raised as a... cough, cough... Ford man. It wasn't a choice. We just seemed to have fords and that's what I learned to work on first.

I grew up with a variety of vehicles. My personal choice of wheels when I was old enough to drive was aircooled veedubs.
One of the best vehicles I ever had was an International Scout II Terra. That thing was built like a tank.
