I didn't find any similar posts in a forum search, so let's see what you're driving. I haven't been on much since I totaled my Volvo early in December, but I have some new wheels now and I'm back. 

Here's my new to me 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali 4wd. 5.3L w/8-Speed trans. It has the stock Magneride suspension as far as I can tell. More pictures to come as soon as the weather clears.

2002 Ford Mustang GT.  Not a daily driver, but I do drive it a decent amount.  My father and I work together with it since he has an 04 GT too.  It's a fun car.  Not fast compared to what they make today, but I think the 2v engine is one of the best sounding engines Ford has made in the modern era. And nice truck Stout ! A buddy I work with drives a 2014 GMC Denali which he mostly uses to trailor his absolutely stunning 57 Chevy.  The guy restored it himself and it is just a remarkable show car.  Hopefully some other members can share some pics of their own cars456368273_Screenshot_20181231-100611_Facebook1.thumb.jpg.fe95d687fed10e0beb5cfb852d631ac4.jpg

Thank you, Minos. I actually bought a 2014 GMC Sierra SLT 4wd from my local dealer, but the truck was at a dealership in Miami, FL over 800 miles away. The dealership in Florida actually sold the truck 2 1/2 weeks after I purchased it, and my dealership was so apologetic that they sold me the 2016 Denali with 90k fewer miles on it for the same price. The also extended the warranty I purchased on the SLT from 12 months to 36 months on the Denali, and threw in a 4-year prepaid maintenance plan along with 7 years of free dent repairs. It was aggravating, but I got a much better truck. I love it so far!

I used to have a 2006 Mustang V6 when I was in Florida. I was surprised at how strong the 6 cylinder was and how good it sounded.

2008 Hyundai Tiburon 2.7L V6 with a NGM Supercharger Stage 0 (Will be upgraded later)

Upgrade includes: custom upper intake manifold made for the supercharger, Injen cold air intake (It's a real one that actually goes down into the front bumper), performance cat-back exhaust, Fuel Ignition Controller piggyback ECU (will be going in shortly). 

Audio Upgrades (OBVIOUSLY): Pioneer stereo w/ bluetooth and pandora, infinity speakers (front/rear), dual 10" Kicker Comp R subwoofers ported box,  Alpine main amp for subs,  Alpine secondary amp for speakers behind radio, with a capacitor between the battery and the main amp to manage the power efficiently so my headlights won't be flashing down the highway like a undercover cop car every time the bass drops.

Lighting Upgrades: HID kit for headlights with headlights that have LED switchback Halos, LED tail lights, LED interior lighting, blue LED underglow (which was removed due to accidentally driving with them on and the police officer that pulled me over for it didn't like that too much, WOOPS) 

Has a three gauge pillar added to it on the driver side pillar for the boost gauge, oil pressure gauge, and Air Fuel Ratio gauge. 

All custom wiring for the gauges, any wire extending purposes to reach the supercharge for sensors, the audio system wiring was all done myself cause I wasn't paying $1000+ to get the job done somewhere else with all the add-ons that were put into this car.

The rear spoiler does not exist on this car anymore! Old photo

Also have a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2L that I bought as a winter beater but I ended up making it a restoration project to make the thing pretty clean. I did all the bodywork (cab corners, rocker panels, bought a used bed and did all lower panels on that as well) in the driveway so it didn't come out that well and I also am not a autobody guy but I tried. I don't have great pictures of the truck alone but I will try grabbing some to post later.

Bottom picture is when I bought the truck and only replaced the fenders, headlights, and black grille at the time:

After all the bodywork, paint, and assembly for the cab and bed as well as rubber coating the frame I added on 33" tires, new wheels, a rough country leveling kit which lifted it 1.5" in the front and 1" in the rear, tinted cab lights on top with white LED lights, tinted rear taillights, HID kit for headlights, a pioneer stereo, and it had subwoofers but I took them out. 

From here, that truck needs the interior gutted and buying everything used in really good condition or brand new. That will probably be my next project once the snow is out of here and the spring/summer comes.

Not too long ago traded that for this due to needs change...  Some days I regret it.  Especially now that it's starting to get nice out again.

Do you still have that old Volvo wagon? I'd love to get my hands on one of those if I could find one in really nice condition.

I do, I grew up in it and stole it from me Ma after she said she was going to donate it to charity a few years ago (it was my beater for winter/crappy weather when I had the SS and the Mustang before it).  It's a '90 with 286k on it (all in the family) and some rust here and there, but the only rot it's got are on replaceable panels, like the doors and tailgate.  PS went out so I deleted it (doesn't need it with those pizza cutters and small ass engine).  AC doesn't work but all I need to do is get a condenser.  And it runs fine (although dat piston slap....) so I'm just going to keep using it like it is supposed to be used until it gives up the ghost.  I'm not sure if it'll ever die if I keep up on maintenance.  I've also got an '85 240 turbo wagon (w/ 274k) that I'm in the process of fixing up.  Not sure why, I just saw it for sale for a great price and decided it'd be a good project given the particular issues that did and didn't need to be addressed.

Good luck finding one in good condition.  Generally the PNW seems to be the best place, but then you've got some good buyer competition in that area as they're generally loved.  The salt belt cars have issues generally, even if cared for, and even the ones in good climates often suffer from issues precipitating from clogged/leaking cowl drains or windshield leaks (water pools on floor and rusts it out without the need of salt to help).  Also '85 and earlier used shit tier steel so if you do look, '86+ is your better bet.  And cash for clunkers destroyed a bunch of good ones too.  But if you find a good one priced reasonably, and keep up on maintenance (which is very cheap and most items are a cinch to work on), it'll go forever.  If you keep an eye on the turbobricks classifieds threads, they call out some good examples on the regular (in their daily orphan thread) and post some good ones; they're on the ball.

And if you're into swaps, these things are great platforms.  LS, mod Ford, Volvo white blocks, SBF, SBC, etc... it's all been done and is well documented.
