    Here's a pretty good load.


    However my friend's old 1985 Crown Victoria could haul even more. I bet he wondered about the bits of bark...

    OK, scoot, you want this in "The Wood Shed", or in "The Gear", or in "The Perfect Picture"? Your choice...you have 3 minutes to decide, or I'm moving it to someplace. Rick

    Alright scoot, we both know it doesn't belong here in the Hearth Room...where do you think it belongs? We don't have an Old Tired Ford Full of Wood Room, so where am I to put it? I'll give you another bonus minute. Rick

    Aw heck, scoot's not even logged on anymore...who wants to vote where to move it? I'm inclined toward the Wood Shed, myself, but I can be easily swayed. Rick

    Wood shed, no question. There's no car talk forum here (yet).

    The woodshed is where it should go , the question is where should scoot go!
    maybe home and get that wood unloaded before it goes thru the floor board !
    BTW my car hauls only kindling scraps for all the rest the van and trailer are used.

    Thanks for moving that post. The "Woodshed" is appropriate as that's kind of what the car is. I can't drive by free firewood and not at least try to fill up.

    My car only hauls the woodcutter and his can of gas. I pay a trucker to haul 12 cord at a time.

    I can get about 1/6 cord in my Focus. I can't drive past free wood either.

    So it seems that Ford cars are the leading wood haulers so far...

    I vote Wood Shed for a couple days, then move it to The Gear, then the picture forum.

    Where is the pic. of the Falcons springs inverted and the tires rubbing the fender-wells?
    Like to see expressions of people as you pull up to a stop light... :lol:

    Vic's wife has a Matrix. He puts the rear seat down and loads that sucker up like you couldn't believe, and the car handles it well.

    That falcon looks to be in good restorable shape ! I'd fix it up and get a decent used truck, 8 ft bed build 3 ft wood sides. Then you could haul about 3/4 of a chord.

    I bet that during your college days you cramed excessive amounts of people in a VW Bug.

    It's a rusty Fordor, so next time it needs major structural repair it will probably be parted out. I did replace the leaf springs a few years ago so there's no problem there. I just pump up the bias ply retreads to about 40 psi when carrying a load.

    It can also carry a complete 351 engine with transmission in the trunk!
