    Default Soon to be owner

    Hi there,

    My name's Jon, and I don't currently own a truck, but am shopping. I'm getting back into car racing after giving it up for about 8 years to raise kids. I'm racing a first gen RX-7, but am looking for another class. I need the truck to tow an Interstate 24' x 8' race trailer that I have. It's nice...

    I'm also into high end (but not too expensive) home audio and I work in the semiconductor industry. I've been know to play a few PC video games in my spare time (usually way too late at night).

    I have a few cars...

    Mazda 2001 Tribute
    Mazda 2006 Mazdaspeed6
    Mazda 1991 RX-7 Turbo
    Mazda 1991 RX-7 N/Turbo
    Mazda 1992 Miata
    Mazda 1983 RX-7 12A NASA E-2 Enduro spec (race car)
    1983 Renault Alliance 1.4 RenaultCup spec (old race car)
    Toyota 2006 Sienna Limited AWD for the wife and kids

    Recently sold a 2005/6 2500HD crew cab long bed with 8.1 for a family member. It's an insanely good tow vehicle, but it way too big for me..

    Cheers!
    Jon

    Welcome to the G M T C ! The crew cab you sold wouldn't have had any problems, but the diesel would have been better.

    Yeah it was actually hard to sell the truck, noone wanted the 8.1 with its horrible 8mpg. Had to let it go to a dealer for cheap :(
