    That's what everyone says... I pick and choose the bad ones out of the woods. Plus tree tops from a logging years back. I love the heat the walnut generates! I swear the big bear 400 is the toughest quad I've ever owned, all torque and will pull a house off its foundation!

    Damn, that's cool. Now for the obvious questions. What year, what motor, what trans, and how much was it? Seeing a survivor like that really drives home how gay new chevy trucks are.

    1977 GMC K15 , 350 engine with a 4 barrel carb, 4 speed trans with a "granny" compound low gear, and a np 205 transfer case. 3/4 ton springs in the back , 12 bolt rear end and a Dana 44 front. There is a good bit of rust being hidden by the fresh paint they slapped on, but a solid woods truck. I gave $1200 for it and trailered it home. Put 2 front brake hoses on it, tune up, changed all fluids, and new rear pinion bearings and seals. Total investment as you see it about $1500.

    Wow, well worth it. It sucks that rust killed so many trucks of that era, but i'd say that one is a keeper. If you want to update it like the new chevy trucks you could always have onstar and a black box gps tethered data recorder installed. Not.

    That's one sharp looking truck. I love the older trucks from the 70's and 80's .. 79 ford is my favorite of all time wish I could find one in decent shape. here in north east PA the salt eats em up pretty quick.

    Its a 1940 ford 9n. 001.jpg 003.jpg befor and after.

    Love that old tractor. My family still has my Grandpa's old Ford 8N. I think it's a 1958. It was just repainted and had some dings and dents repaired. The high gear on that thing is just plain scary!

    Throw in a flathead v8 and it will be even scarier. Rename it Wheely horse after the upgrade.

    Does anyone have a clever idea for carrying chainsaws on the quad?

    sleeve type mounts are made that clamp onto your raccs. check at your local atv dealers or arborist/ saw shop.
