It looks like you have a fun ride. Did you get the pickup to haul things or because you like trucks?

My excuse for going to a shopping mall and doing donuts in the snow was to practice my winter driving skills. Mostly, I just liked doing donuts but I haven't done that in ages.

Thanks for the compliments. I prefer trucks, they get used as trucks as well as toys. My main point of the video was actually for the exhaust sound, I posted them over on Ford Truck Enthusiasts in the Straight Six forum. Seems every time my buddy and I start screwing around like that, stuff get wrecked. My Crown Vic has the dents to prove it. :twisted:

sounds great! I had a 89 4x4 like that one time. couldnt stand the layout of the dash and had to sell it. I keep looking at the right gauge instead of the left gauge.
