New from Denver
« on: August 16, 2022, 06:03:11 PM »
Hi!

A few months ago, I got my hands on a 1973 C20 big block. I've always wanted a classic/project, and this is definitely it. Currently toying with the idea of converting it to a short bed (it needs to be replaced anyway – might as well make an ordeal out of it). But, that said, I'm looking forward to what I can learn here.

My truck actually came from Denver. I drove it up to Saint Mary's Glacier. Very steep and rough off road trail that is a difficult drive, is it still there?

No kidding? That's awesome. And yep, I was up by Saint Mary's Glacier a year or two ago – the dicey road and the glacier are both still there!

Hello and welcome from Central California!  Great project truck.

It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!
