    Default Just another newbie - Northeast Ohio

    Just saying "hey" I live in Northeast Ohio.

    Traded my modified '03 Ford Focus ZX3 for a '86 Chevy C30 crew cab dually down in Kentucky. A deal that I couldn't refuse..

    My best friend and I always wanted to own duallies since we were wee lads.

    He's got a '96 Choo-Choo conversion F350 crew cab turbodiesel dually.

    I now have mine;LOL!!!

    454,Muncie 465 manual trans,4.10 rear end. It's a beast.

    I'll be asking questions when I have them,so please be prepared...

    Of course I won't be leaving it stock as well....

    It's got a few what I call "surface rust" spots around the chrome pieces around the the top of the cab and on the tailgate. Nothing that some prep with some POR-15 can't fix. It's loud and obnoxious and the ol' lady said that with the exhaust note from the side exit exhaust it's a embrassment to her and the neighborhood. which means that I love it.
