    Hey Everybody,

    I just bought my new '08 1500 Silverado on new years eve(great timing huh!) and am happy to join the club.

    I'm excited to finally have a Chevy truck. Ever since I was a kid I worked on them and wanted one. My parents bought me a Tacoma while in high school and she gave me no problems for 12 years, until we needed space for the baby, and I had to upgrade to full size. Then my childhood dream came true and I was able to buy a Silverado. Now, all is right in the world.

    I look forward to modifying my truck and sharing info on this site!

    Welcome to the club! I know I had to move into the Trailblazer to get space for the two kiddos we're hauling around and all the stuff that goes along with that. Congrats on the purchase, good timing for the end of the year too! What a way to celebrate!
