    Ok, so....
    Maybe it's just me.... but it's pretty darn kool to own a classic square.. BUT,
    it's even kooler to put that sucker to work!!!!

    Being a truck owner,... getting asked to move stuff is par for the course, I suppose..... Oh well :)
    I usually charge a nominal fee of a full tank of fuel when I'm done (depending on how much I like ya... maybe a few extra bucks more..LOL) :waytogo:

    My pastor asked if I could move a washer/drier for him today...

    Who's got some pix of working squares, or boat/toy pullin' ones..........?

    mine are cell phone pix... sorry if the quality is poor

    BTW... somebody was asking about the quality of the ride/support with the way my truck was lowered...(can't remember which thread it was) I had one coil cut off the front, and the overloads yanked off the back... this is what happens though, I put anything in back, and she sinks right down.. bit of a pain.. should I put heavier duty shocks?

    The way it sits in the back.. is really how low I would like to take it... flip kit, or bags.. i imagine

    Ok, in the second pic I see a white truck just sitting there?? Why'd they ask you to help if they had a white truck just sitting there?? :think:

    I always enjoy seeing your truck man! The fact that it's that nice and it's your DD is awesome! :rocking:

    Ahhh.. the white 91 belongs to the guy we got the washer/drier from. I came to meet him from my town about 45 minutes away from his. I brought the stuff back here to town with me, in my truck

    Gotcha! ;) Gotta love putting that thing to work. The most work mine does these days is hauling lawn chairs, coolers or other misc items like that to cruise nights, picnics or other relaxing events :D I wouldn't be opposed to using to take something like an washer and dryer from point A to point B but you better believe I'd be keeping an eye on that thing coming anywhere close to my paint!! :D

    I appreciate that.. people get a kick out of how much I really do use it, and nothin really goes wrong, besides routine maintenence stuff... (oil changes, tire rotations, brakes...etc..)

    HA!.. I know.. right?
    ehhh, mine needs to be re-painted badly... I don't trip on it too much, but I just don't let anything be pushed up on it either... I just try to keep it clean, as it sits... I wish I can do what you got goin on over there, and pull it out only cruise nights and such... hopefully within the next year or two upon graduation, I can get me somethin else, and retire my square to show quality....

    Shock absorbers do not affect ride height, they slow movement of the axle/wheel going up and down. You have less spring tension, thats why the truck has less weight capacity.

    Here's the 85 moving me from Las Cruces Nm all the way to Reno last summer. Over 1k miles through extreme desert heat.

    Since my wifes class mates all drive cars, if someone needs furniture moved I do it for free but usually ask for favors later. Last one was my buddy Sean picking me up and taking me to get the Mustang from a bar the next day.

    Yeah, but it's also only original one time man so you got that too. The fact that yours is original paint (at least I think I remember you saying that :think:) and is as clean as it is speaks volumes. Once you start the restore/customization process there's no going back! :D

    hahahaha, I realized I am freakin old the other day, when I realized I have lived with only have 1 speaker on the passeger side working of my stock OEM stereo in the 84 C20 that I can not even tell what station I am on cuz the digital display is not working in about 50% of the bars, so I put it on my most preffered station and leave it alone. It would be nice to have other music and some tone, but I guess I figure the truck is ugly enough it doesn't deserve a stereo yet, and actually I am not sure I want to cut the dash for a DIN system or not.
    And my passenger side window... at 60mph its so loud you have to yell if you are talking to someone in the cab with you. Just not 100% certain of that status on the truck yet as far as its plans so I have chose not to put any money or invest alot of time in it. It may end up parted out to 3 other Squares I want to get up and running inclding the 88Burb, 85K1500 and the other 85C20 or 85K10. To many options and lack of funds and time at the moment.

    naaaw... it's been sprayed once over the original... like 15+ years ago.. if memory serves. It's the original color though... it matches right up with the dash, and the interior parts of the truck.

    Yeah, I do want to go through it all though... interior.. weather-stripping, gauges... paint.. newer front clip... etc....

    I have to hand it to my dad though... he kept it tip-top.. always, he just passed me the torch, and i added a few touches here and there
    He just taught me to take care of my things... no matter how old, or new it is..
    He used to always tell me "Son, if God can trust you with the least and oldest of things... he can trust you with the best, and newest, as well"
