I'm Back!!!

well it's been some time !! wish I could go into it all but all I can say is there were more dark days than I almost could handle.

so I hope to find a new project to get started and keep my path clear I hope to find a suburban 60-72 but I would look at early models either way I want to replace my late model, ok 2000 Silverado ! I know it will take me some time to complete because of my health issue's but !! I will.

I hope to reconnect with you guys and catch up on your projects.
Henry

Re: I'm Back!!!

Henry, it was good to see you at Goodguys! You're looking better now that the meds are done. I'll see what I can do to help on the Suburban hunt. (Just saw one pushed in to the brush on my way back from the bank..........66 or older).
How about you do an LS swap into one, and post the build for us here??????

Two Lane Blacktop....

How about a 3" z in the front and a big block Chevy with a tunnel ram and dual 4's sticking through the hood.... kind of like the classic '55 used in 2 lane blacktop but fast forwarded a decade, using a Suburban?

Re: I'm Back!!!

Re: I'm Back!!!

Glad you're doing better! Nice to have you back. I'd like to score a 60 or 61 GMC Burb (would take any of those years though) but I'd keep the V-6 in it so it would really be a GMC.

Re: I'm Back!!!

I would take any but I just cant get myself to stay stock , after driving my 57 for a few years stock and then now it's just day and night I so much enjoy it better but that's just my .02

yes I feel much better or should I say I have a clear head , pain is about a 8-9 every day but I can deal with that part !
