My name is Johnny, 30 years old, about 20 minutes south of Fort Smith Arkansas. Former GM certified tech, however not master tech, and ASE certified tech.  I have a 1979 C-10 Scottsdale restoration project to give back to the old man.  This was his favorite truck he had ever owned and he had bought it brand new off the showroom floor in 1979 when he got back stateside from the U.S. Military service.  He later sold the truck to help pay for a newer vehicle for some of us kids.  After much discussion, i went to great lengths to track the truck back down in Fort Worth Texas, where I was able to make an offer and re-acquire ownership.  The body was still rust free, but had new dents, and the original 305 had spun several rod bearings.  Removed the 305, built a performance 350, I rebuilt trans, am looking for 3.73 posi for twelve bolt to drop in, and am working on finishing interior and then off to body shop for work and paint.   I am probably going to rebuild the original 305 as well and keep it on the side in case I ever want to return truck to matching numbers.  I have a few pics in members ride page if interested. Welcome all new members and as always, this page forum group is awesome and extremely knowledgeable.  Special thanks for letting me be apart of it.

Hey Y'all, guess where I'm from. Yep, the south. I'm 53 years old with 2 kids, wifey, a dog and 2 cats (not mine). I live just across the line from Tennessee in Georgia but I can literally throw a rock into Chattanooga. I have an 80 model c-10 that I have been driving since 95 and a recently acquired 82 Silverado which is why I joined this board.

Hey guys I'm Adam, 23 years old and I live in south west Louisiana. Recently bought a 78 c10 stepside to restore because I've always dreamed of having a classic vehicle. I've learned a ton from this forum already but I'm sure there's plenty more I'll need to know!

Hey,
 My names Hunter 27 single with a newborn. I'm from just north of New Orleans. I just bought a 83 GMC SWB Stepside after my 2016 GMC Sierra got squashed by an 18 wheeler. I figured i would get something solid and sturdy which is easy to work on. I have plenty of questions and I'm sure y'all will be plenty of help.

Hello,

My name is Patrick (PBritty to some of my friends).  I am 48 and I have always wanted a 1986 SB Silverado so this year my son, who is 14, came to me with one that was 90% done and 60K miles so I bought it.  Then we bought one off a farmer for cheap and we are re-building it.

I learned how to paint and do body work in high school - we were blessed with a technical school.  Everything else I just figure out ;>}. 

So far we have replaced the entire brake system, vent windows, ripped out the interior and have everything to go back in once we take care of some rust.

Cheers!!

Good morning,

My name is Dale, and I'm a truckaholic ;)  I started going by Frozenoak back in my CB Radio days and have carried it with me through my D&D days, into online Gaming and Social Media.  I live in Southern California and work 40 some miles away in South Orange County.  I work for a medical device company as an engineering technician.  I was raised in the southeast corner of Colorado until 9, then the Ozark Mountains of Oklahoma until I graduated High School.  The first car I bought was a pickup truck, thanks to a song by Joe Diffy, and I went away to the Marine Corps.  After I got out, I stayed in Southern California.  Some of my other hobbies include Ham Radio, Backpacking, Hot Air Ballooning, and Motorcycles.

The missus gave me a 1974 Chevy Cheyenne Super for my birthday about a month ago.  It's a Project Truck, that runs, so it'll have to take a back seat to the CB750 Cafe Racer project motorcycle that is currently not running.  First thing I did was put new "better" rims (15X8) and tires (31X10.5 All Terrain) on her.  Then I had to rebuild the Fuel Line from the fuel pump to the carb.  She runs great now but there's rust in the tank so that's next.  Also debating moving the filler neck so that I can fill up like a normal person.  She has a lot of body rust in the typical spots so I've also been pricing patch panels but that'll have to wait, and the 383 upgrade, and the leather interior, and the...

Regards,
Dale

Hello everyone, I'm Steve we live in North Carolina and have gained some acreage in the hills of the Blue Ridge. As such my wife decided we'd go back to our childhood, so we bought a 73 C20 that's in pretty good shape but has a rise of around 6" which doesn't sound bad until you climb in out a few times.  But none of us have any ideas that if you own a  73 4 x 4 is not going to keep you or your neighborhood repairman under the dash, hood, or just underneath (great advantage of a 6" rise) to my wife that's me.
