Polar opposites....

Who else has a similar setup?

Looking at buying a 2013 F150 with crew cab and the long bed. 4x4. Twin turbo 3.5 6cyl is one strong engine...

After driving that for a while and then the Box, it's actually a bit funny how tiny that car really is.

PS...The giant ad at the bottom of my post sucks. I'd pay for a membership to hide that.

Well, sort of similar. The size anyway.
I had my 78 F350 with a 460 for almost 10 years and always had a much smaller car alongside.
Just sold the F350 and 'updated' to an 86 F250 with the (slow, but steady) 6.9L idi diesel.

I see no ads:

If you guys use Internet Explorer, you might want to look into AdBlock plus.

Glad I could help! It will also make Youtube a bit more pleasant not having to deal with ads every time you watch a video.

I own a 1998 Boxster base and a 6.0 liter chevy silverado in a crew cab and long box. Very opposite.

My winter car is a 99 Legacy Outback Wagon. Automatic.

They both have flat motors, so there is that...


My house is not 100% flat motored with the recent 16 Impreza added.

I switch between the Box and Cayman and for the real crappy days the old reliable 04 Sport trac gets the call. When I drive the Trac I feel like I am riding in the trees.
