Thread: New from NC

  1. #1

    Default New from NC

    Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Chris from NC and I drive a 1991 C1500 silverado (main vehicle is a mustang). It's 2wd as well as the 5spd manual 6 cyl version. It has just a tad over 100K on it since it doesn't get driven every day, and the only reason it has 100K is because it was my daily driver for a while, while I did a motor swap in my car.

    The truck use to be my grand-dads and when he passed my dad bought the truck off my grandmother to help with funeral expenses. I drive this truck quite often when it's not practical to drive my car, or it's down to be worked on, and I help my dad do maintenance as well, so I figured joining this site would be a good place to go to if I ever need help..which is actually about to be in a thread following this one.

    Welcome to the Club!!! The old stepsides are hard to come by. Hold on to that as long as you can because I think they will become a collector truck. They dont make them anymore and alot of people love them. They will probably fetch a pretty good price down the road!!!

    Well it certainly looks like it is in good shape! There is a new thread that is asking for pics to be posted of "almost classic trucks" and I think your truck falls into that category so you'll have to show off the ole' girl some more!

    Oh and welcome to the site!!!

    thanks for the warm welcome guys. This truck will stay in the family. My grandad took care of his vehicles, my dad takes care of his, and luckily I'm the son that has always been interested in anything with wheels and take care of mine as well. So I'm sure the next owner will be me It's been a good reliable truck for me and my dad.

    Welcome to the site. Good to have you on here. And I agree it's a good choice to get on here for any help you might need. You probably shouldn't need any other resource for that truck. Heck, we'll probably even overlook the fact your DD is a mustang.
