Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)

DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

We will not be asking you for donations or any kind of monetary payments. We will be asking for help in terms moderators and encouraging you to spread the word and add to our membership.

    The Rest of My Truck(s) Story

    Post  FORDBOYpete on Wed Jun 24, 2009 12:19 am

    Well if my Slick didn't wrankle you this one will. My other truck is also a FoMoCo product it is an Aerostar. And I don't care what people think. This truck probably doesn't qualify as a truck in most folks minds, but it is.Last November I hauled some military fitings, gun mounts, snd sundry other parts for PTF-3, a Viet Nam Era Nasty Class PT boat, in fact the lead boat in the Tonkin Gulf Incident of 1963, we're refurbishing. Aero, a 16',2 axle, flatbed, tagalong trailer & the frieght loaded on it scaled 13,780". I hauled 4 400 gallon fuel tanks up there to trade that were 12'-0" high & 14 of the 16 feet of my trailer long. BIG load. This van has 235,000+ miles on a Cologne 4.0L V-6 & 4 spd AOD A/T. It's a 2+2 with rear air, tunes, full tint and is an XLTN Model which is opposite of the Plane Jane and utilitarian type van. It sits on Mercury Grand Marquis Alloy 15 X 8 turbo wheels with 225 X 75 R-15 Bridgestones. It has HD 1000#)Sensatrack coilover loadlevelers, and I will not part with this truck. I can eat off the underside it's so pristine, in spite of the hi mileage and all.it gets 24 mpg when it's not working it's ass off, which isn't very often because I work it hard, but I care for it regularily and I do what it takes to keep it up. So now you have the rest of my truck story. DAve has seen pix of this "wonder Beast"
