New member Just picked up a 1979 Cheyenne Big10
« on: February 01, 2021, 01:34:22 PM »
    Just wanted to drop in and say hello to all the members of The forum. I just picked up a 1979 C10 with a 350, just trying to get everything up to an acceptable operating level. I live in Rhode Island and will be doing most of the work myself.

Welcome. Everyone loves to see pics if you got them, even if it's old and rusty.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. Really liking all the info on this site. I'm ready to get started on the ball joints. Still riveted into the upper control arm, so my guess is a rebuild is at the top of the list.
