Just sayin Hi. I am fairly new to these old chevy trucks. I grew up in Arlinton during the 60's- 70's so am very familiar with 60's trucks but nothing as old as my current '52 3100. Been wrenchin since around 10 years old. Got a "stock" 52 that I am finishing up right now. Plan is to sell it at Charlotte April 19-22 car show. I'm really into hot rods and not stock stuff, but this 52 was in way to good shape to pass up!! A buddy of mine in Lurray (spelling) has a 57 that will be my next ride!! He has already said he will sell it to me and it's the year I was was born sooo- Let me know if anyone needs a truck to be looked at, parts picked up or anything else down this way. I'd be happy to help anyone out anyway I can.

Good to have another Jarhead in the ODSS. I'm just across the mountain from Luray, so let me know when you're in the area or if you need help getting your '57.

Welcome. Thanks for the heads up. See if you can make it up to Grigg's place in Lexington in July of '12.

Indeed, ditto to what Brother NAPCO said. It *is* good to have another Marine onboard (it looks personal when it's just the three same guys taking turns beating up Hambone all the time...).

Come hang with your ODSS brethren sometime. We have things going on in January, April, July, September and whenever one of us needs an "intervention" -- That's ODSS code for "Come quickly -- I need help drinking all this beer I just bought!"

Thanks guys. I will look up ODSS and see what I can find out about getting together. Lexington is real close to me as u probably know. That 57 I was referring to is from a buddy of mine that I grew up with. I've known him since I was 5 or 6 years old!!! I even named a son after him!! No @#$% !! Point is- he's trustworthy and at least I'll get the straight scoop on the truck. Hope to sell the '52 in the spring and buy the '57 then. USMC history- VMFA-251 '75-'79 F-4 squadron, 6531 which is ORDNANCE. Yeah, nobody bother me!!! 4 yrs. E-4.
