Update: @Mark N, I like Ford, Chevy and Dodge. The Ford in my AVATAR is BIGFOOT 1, the worlds 1st monster truck which I'm very fond of being from St. Louis. There shop is 20 minutes away from me. I've owned a '69 Camaro for 25 years. I have a rusty 'ol lifted '87 GMC Suburban and my daily driver is a 2001 Lincoln Town Car. show more @Mark N, I like Ford, Chevy and Dodge.

Update 2: @Grizzly Man, it wouldn't cost $200,000 to give him some old parts. I doubt it would even cost $20,000.
