Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I'm new here, but not new to old trucks by any means. I've been reading posts here for a while and everyone seems to be very freindly, so I figured I'd join in. I have loved old trucks ever since I was a kid, and have owned a bunch and worked on many more over the years. Working with trucks is pretty much all I have ever done, as a mechanic for 25 years and as a fleet manager for the last 5 years.

The 60-66 trucks are my favorites, but I like all old trucks, not just Chevy and GMC but all old trucks. I especially like all the pictures of the unmolested trucks you have here. I'm an oldie that still likes them the way they came, except for maybe a set of chrome reverse or slotted aluminum wheels. I have nothing against all the new fads if that's what someone likes, but it's just not for me.

Thanks to all of you for letting me be here, and I look forward to talking with everyone.

Thanks guys for the warm welcome. Much appreciated.

Tabdoo16, no offense meant to those that like customs. I'm sure there's plenty of people that don't like them plain the way I do. Each to his own. It would be a dull world if everyone liked the same thing.

And Achipmunk, I've actually grown kind'a customed to the hangovers, but I think I'll like it anyway. lol

Thanks Again!

Welcome to the bolt TruckNut! I'm one that has a (molested)truck. My '51 started as a father/son project. They chopped it three inches and the son lost interest so I was able to pick it up for $700.00. I just couldn't let it go to scrap yard. I agree Orignal is better but I just had to save this one. Any way welcome to the site we're glad to have you! wave

Thanks Terry, it's nice being here. And yes, we must save them all. They don't make 'em like that anymore, and never will again I'm afraid.
