[attachmentid=21643][attachmentid=21642][attachmentid=21641][attachmentid=21640][attachmentid=21639]So the bull has been agin... currently 165,000 on the clock and climbing fast. I haven't paid as much attentions to her as i should, with marraige, and a parental divorce, and ayounger sister turning 10 and whatnot, and such............anyways.. long story short.... recently, i put out for my baby. Actually, my parents did. Seeing as how they're splitting, they want my wife and I to have reliable cars, the Cougar (my wife's) got new tires, upper and lower intake gaskets, oil pan gasket, valve cover gaskets and new engine/trans mounts as well as fixing the egr. ME, i chose to have new struts/coils (napa response) new brakes (slotted and ceramic pads all around) and new ball joints, front subframe/control arm/stabilizer bushings and just before that i made the purchase of four brand new BFG Radial T/A's..... size 225/70/15.

This all with about approx 20-25k on the salvage/personally rebuilt engine/trans combo.

BTW..... all this is thanks to incredible discounts due to my being employed at NTB (shameless plug)

Anyways... tonight, i drank a few beers (3... not a crazy drunk driver, me) and quite a bit after both those and some good looks at the pics of the taurus mounted on a jeep frame :-P I decided to go mudding. Mind you it rained all day tonight clearing up about 4-5pm and this is a completely dirt 'road' as in, constrcution access 'path' made by the constant crawling of earth moving equipment across an open field as they build a new elementary school near where i live.

It was bad. I had the front bumper so deep, i was ELBOW deep in mud to attach the tow strap to the subframe. The front wheels were buried to the center caps and i overheated her trying to rock her loose before a friend with a 4x4 escape came to the rescue. He got me started and i plowed out.

Pics will ensue... and a video of my car after i got her home. Alas it was tooooooo dark for ON site pics.

If my car had all that on it, there's NO way I'd clean it off anytime soon. It's like a bunch of badges of honor.

Thats cool.
