    I am bored out of my skull... SO, I'll start a thread. If you are to cooperate, you'd write about yourself, follow suite and add more if you wish.

    Name: Sam Griebenow
    Location: I live in Friendswood, it's about at "Perfect-ville" as it comes
    Age: 18
    Favorite Vehicle: My current project... I just wanna get the damn thing done now though. I've been working on it for about a year now. But hopefully it goes to paint this weekend! For those of you who don't know... look it up. '54 Chevy on a 77 Chassis, though I've not updated pictures as of recently.
    For Fun: I'm a pretty typical Senior in HS. So I like to hang out with my friends, my amamzing girlfriend, and wrench. I spend way too much time on this site for my own health... I like racing my dad's Benz (we go to a track every first Sunday of the month). I love people, I love my family. I play soccer... I played football (kicker) this year :doah: not a whole lot more I don't think.
    Random Stuff: I've been skiing since the age of 2. Playing soccer since 4. Working on cars since I could walk (my dad had two mustangs and I'd be out there all the time). I like rock, a bit of country, and :doah: a bit of rap :doah: ... I'm a pretty smart kid I suppose. I treat women like a gentleman should... that's how I was raised. I have a problem with stupid people in a place of authority. I can't really think of much else...

    Take it away guys!

    Name: Allan Alden Lundberg

    Location: Spokane, Wa. and Ione, Wa. Ione used to be a cute little town... but now it's a partially inbred hickville of the north. I do my best to blend in when I'm there, except for the inbreeding part.

    Age: 24 but feel like I'm 80

    Favorite vehicle: I'm an equal opportunity 4-wheeler. I love all my children equal... but if I had to choose, it would be my '80 GMC.

    For Fun: I'm a vulcan. Only (main) thing I do that isn't logically based is off-roading. Isn't working on trucks fun? What else is there to do?

    Random: I used to want to own my own art store; I listen to about anything, but country and rap are on the bottom of the list; I believe in God and main theories of Christianity but don't go to church; my dog is fat; I claim to live in a motorhome part-time; I'm one of the few guys left out there that believes in marriage before sex and only want one girl to spend my life with... in other words I don't date... but even if I tried I wouldn't be able to get any cause I look like an ugly caveman; I'm so cheap the only things I buy new are fuel and oil... everything else is reusuable or I'll use until it can't be used anymore... including some gas and oil too I guess. :p: Besides Chevy 4x4s and Dana 60's, I have a thing for camp trailers, campers and old motorhomes. I have a unibrow. Instead of typing this I should be out in the garage working on things but I'm not.

    Name: Joe Zumpf

    Location: New Lenox, Illinois. One of the fastest growing south suburbs of chicago, and i hate it here. I cant wait to move out into the sticks.

    Age: 20

    Favorite Vehicle: My '85 Toyota. ;)

    For Fun: I just enjoy being outside, whether its heading out wheeling, fishing, camping, hiking, or working on my trucks.

    Random: I listen to any and all music, from classical to punk to even some rap, and everything inbetween. I also consider myself a conservative when it comes to political view, and this draws criticism from other people i go to school with. Apparently when you are conservative you are only allowed to listen to certain music. They can screw themselves. I, like allen, believe in marriage before sex, and when it comes to relationships have very high moral standards. I have yet to meet one woman in the school i attend who doesnt still talk like a valley girl and only want to get smashed on the weekend and have sex with anything that will bring them a beer. Sorry, not interested. Two years ago i got to watch my dad die in a car accident with my own eyes, this combined with my depressing search for women with a sliver of integrity has left me somewhat bitter towards people in general. I guess thats about it, in other words i better stop before i type out a novel. Wait, one more thing, i am club president of Chicago 4x4, and enjoy it alot. We dont do much, but we wheel and we have fun.

    Location: El Cajon California will be moving to Norfolk Virginia in June of 2006 cause Uncle Sam Said So.

    Age: 28

    Favorite Vehicle: My 1987 K5

    Random: Raised in a Christian home with typical Christian Morals. I have a daughter that was born out of wedlock. However my wife is her mother :D I just did it a little backwards. I have been in the Navy for just over 10 years and I am a Chief Machinist Mate (Nuclear) in the US Navy and I spent 5 1/2 years on the nuclear submarine USS Houston (SSN-713). I am becoming a Naval Officer and will be going to the USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71 in Norfolk Virginia. Like Joez I listen to all kinds of music from classical to soul to rap to country and anything inbetween and by the way PUNKS NOT DEAD!!!! :D . I like wrenchin on the rig and almost have everything together to put the 4" lift dana 60 front 14FF rear and 37 MTRs. I generally get quite annoyed with "stupid" people and I am a firm beliver that stupidity should be painful. I plan on doing atleast 10 more years in the Navy possible 20 so I will not have to work when I retire. I currently have plans to retire around the Flagstaff area but I did spend a couple of weeks around Esquimalt and Victoria and could easily see myself becoming............dare I say it..............Canuckian :doah: . They would prolly kick me out anyhow. I guess that is it I am pretty analytical as it is the Nuclear way and if you can follow any of what I have typed you will notice that I pretty much type what ever pops into my head with no rhyme or reason.

    Hmm lets see here

    Name Brian Hershberger

    Location Lemoore California (Naval Air Station)

    Favorite vehicle would be my 89 Blazer. I have a couple of dream cars 68 RS/SS Camaro Early 70's T/A with a 455, 55-57 Chevy pickup. Currently looking for a towrig to pull my Blazer around. Not sure what though.

    About me

    I grew up in a small town in NW Montana. I am a country boy born and raised. I still have that way of life in me although I am forced to live elsewhere do to being in the Navy. I joined when I was 18 and just went over 9 years. I have 11 more woohoo :D I just returned from a 6 month cruise on the USS Nimitz. I am an electrician on F-18 Super Hornets. I love my job but I am not crazy about the Navy sometimes. It pays the bills, and it is an easy job when I am home. I have been married for 4 years, but prolly wont see 5 (different story) I have a 2 year old boy and a 6 year old stepson who mean the whole world to me. I am pretty much into anything outdoors. I like to ski and snowboard. I was an avid hunter till I came in the Navy, and now it's pretty hard to get home to hunt LOL. I love quads and dirtbikes, but my current occupation will only support my K5 hobby :D I am a pretty easy going guy that doesn't get angry about much. I I still have old fashioned values and morals I think which I hope rub off on my kids. Thats about me in a nutshell :D

    Name: R. Carter

    Age: 38 (will be 39 in May)

    Location: Outside of San Antonio, TX. But the city gets a little closer all the time.

    I've been a firefighter for almost 16 years now. I'm pretty lucky to be able to make a good living off of something I love doing.

Our current rides are my 97 K1500, my wifes 01 4wd Tahoe, and our 89 K5.
