Hello fellas I tought I would stop by and see if I could help anyone out. I started working in Chev dealerships in 1954. Did that till I bought my own shop in 1962.Finally burned out in the 80s,but I still enjoy batting the breeze about the old ones. I dont google things I figure anyone can do that, my answers will be from actual expierence.Thanks for listening. Tom

Hey Tom, sounds like you started wrenching the year I was born. Experience is the best teacher, glad to have you join us. Welcome! So what do you call an old truck? Pre-WWII?

Hi Tom, welcome from Scotland.
Thanks for your offer of help.
Like Leo says,there ain't nothing like hands on experience.
Your advice will be very welcome,especially for some of us 'young pups'! wink


I've definately got this truck thing in my blood ... my DNA sequence has torque settings

Thanks for the welcome fellas. As to what I call a prewar truck that would probably be "rusty" I dont try to keep up with the OBD stuff. If its a 46 i/2 ton every one understands that.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Hey Tom,

I'm just curious, do you have any old trucks in your driveway?
