  • Ok, first things first, this thread will be a slow starter. I do not spend alot of time on the computer outside of work, and most of my pictures are at home or on camaras (that i do not have access to at work). But I have a few here to get started.

    Here we go,

    I found this truck on C-list for $600 obo. Said it ran and drove in 1st gear, but no higher gears. Went and picked it up on a friday night after work for $300. Got the truck home and started to dig in.
