    I thought it would be a good idea to have an ongoing thread for the North Carolina members to post and introduce themselves. This can prove helpful when you are looking for help with local shops and service centers.

    I'll get this thread kick-started...

    I'm Mark and I live in Concord, not too far from Lowe's Motor Speedway. I've been a GM vehicle fanatic most of my 34 year driving "career"! I have owned several trucks, SUVs and a few Corvettes over the years and love to modify/upgrade mostly for improved function and performance. I'm not much in to the bling thing!

    I currently own a Black 2007 Silverado LTZ Crew Cab w/ Z71. I just purchased this after owning a Hummer H3 for a few years. BOY, is it great to have a REAL truck again!!!

    I look forward to seeing who my "neighbors" are!! So post up!! :great:

    hey guys, just joined from Burlington here. While I'm here, I wante to get everyones opinion.... I'm looking at this LTZ...
    its got 36k miles, navi, 2007. They are asking 34k. Realistically how much do you think I could drop them down to?? It seems like I could get one without all of the stuff, and just get the upgrades in the pic for less. Anyone have any ideas???

    I just bought my '07 LTZ with 19K miles for a lot less. I kinda got a special deal because I work for the guy that owns the dealership. But with the incentives GM is doing these days I have to believe they should be closer to $30K maybe even a little less!! Trust me...they need to sell you that truck. Use that to your favor. Walk away a few times! Good luck!!:great:

    BTW, WELCOME to the forum!!

    Yea I'm thinking if I can get them down to 28k, I'm sold. Now the next part is the accountant (IE: wife)

    Too funny!! My wife is also an accountant and I have to "Submit a Formal Request" for any funds designated for any of my "Capital Expenditures"!! :gasp: I just bought my '07 and it was difficult to get her to "release" the funds! Believe me, I know who wears the pants in this family!!:slap:

    An FYI for the Charlotte area members...

    I recently bought a Truxedo Tonneau cover and a Airaid MIT from a truck accessories shop in Concord called Carolina Truck & Body Company. They are located at 434 McGill Ave. NW, Concord, NC 28027. Their telephone number is 704-795-0804.

    The guy's name, that owns the shop, is Mitch. He is a real good guy and is really helpful. He was able to get both of my items by 9am the next morning. On the Truxedo cover he was within $20 of the cheapest price I found on the internet, and the Airaid tube was priced about average. I decided to go with the local guy. I've been pretty lucky with eBay and internet catalog companies, but I know the odds are against me.

    Make sure to work him on his prices. I've found that he has some room to negotiate. He has been very fair to me!!
