New Kid with a Truck
Well, I'm Zach...pretty obvious by the username, huh? I'm 16, and I'm a Junior in High School. I'm a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Tae-Kwon-Do, and I make decent grades. My parents are still together, and they take relatively good care of me.
Now, for the thing you guys really care about. I drive a '96 Chevy Silverado, V6, 70,000+ miles on the odometer. About 5 years ago, we redid the whole engine, so it only has about 30,000 or so miles on that. It's a 5-Speed Transmission, and has minor problems like Air Conditioning and stuff like that. Not essentials, but luxuries that are appreciated.
As for my occupation, well, I'm a student. I go to school 8 to 3 every day and learn stuff I don't need in the real world.
Location should probably remain a secret, but I can tell you I'm in Northwest Arkansas.

Welcome!! Great bio...thanks for sharing!! You've got some low miles for having a 1996....nice. I had a 1997 2wd with 240k on it when I sold it and I had a 1997 4wd with approx 175k when I sold it...they both were in great shape and ran awesome.

Welcome aboard, Zach! That was an exceptional introduction. I dated a girl once who was also a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Tae-Kwon-Do. It was incredibly random to find out because she was just the typical, girly, sorority, college chick. lol. Anyway, congrats on your accomplishments in the art. I know it takes a lot of dedication.
As for your truck, it sounds like you've got a nice set up and it's great that you're running on such low miles with that engine rebuild! I would also love to see some pictures though. Anyway, good luck in your remaining year or so of school. I'm sure you've heard it before but trust me, you'll miss it so live it up!
See you around the forum!
