    Post Newbie to the site and Chevy!!!!

    Hey everyone my name is Aric from Portland, Or.

    I'm here to get help and tips for my "new to me" 1985 Chevy pickup. Wanting to fix this thing up. Runs fine now but I would like to stock it with custom gear i.e. air filters, engine upgrades, exhaust, lift or lower, etc.

    I got this truck from from my step dad. His health has caused him no to be able to drive anymore. He didnt get to turn it into what he wanted so I'm hoping to do it.

    Any and all ideas/info is appreciated.

    I think that's really cool that you're taking hold of the reigns on continuing the truck mods and I'm sure you can get plenty of help between the forum and YouTube. Welcome to the club!
