Hello All

My name is Marvin aka "mjgord51", I am glad to find another site to get and give or trade info back and forth, we all need a little push once in a while. Thanks to "Woogeroo" I have a new site to roam around in LOL. I am a Retired Journeymen Electrician with 25+ yrs under my belt also been married to the same wife for going on 40 yrs now with 2 girls & 4 grand kids. ** In the stables are 1= Harley, 1= 64 ChevyII 6 cyl 36 yrs now, and my newly accquired 1 yr. ago 68 C10 sbc/700R4 junkyard dog, Only because of the past owners ideas on what they thought would work for the truck is my nick name for the truck.LOL

Here's my truck be for & after those 22" "wagon wheels"

Thanks, as for your comment about "flaming someone for asking a question" funny you said that, I have had just that happen in another site/forum which will remain unknown. I have always thought that if you want a answer for a question then you need to ask a question RIGHT LOL. The replaced rims & tires are just rollers and will be replaced with Stock Steelies and re-painted original pov caps.

Thanks, just a little more to vent about a different site/forum this one I will talk about (67-72chevytrucks.com). I was posting & conversing back in forth mistakenly by Email on some thing I wanted, that went south on the person not doing what I wanted. Time went by and My brother herd about it and used my computer to create his account and proceed to trap him in a lie which is what did happen. Long story short I got Kicked Off for "Trolling Members" which wasn't in fact the story at all. The same person "sawman" did cheat members out of there parts & also didn't give any Tracking #'s, crappy right well hes still there but now a Non paying subscribing member that can't sell. I know tooo much for me to vent about so soon for a Newbie.

Re: Hello All

Around here we call that "other site" the Dark Side. By the way, if your heads on the truck are original give me the casting # under the valve cover and I can ID them for you. We don't have as many people around here as the "dark side" does but we are a hell of a lot more friendly. (yes, I checked a few of your posts out over there) A few of us here are banned from there as well. Ask here, we'll help you out or at least point you in the right direction. BTW Check this Facebook site out. https://www.facebook.com/groups/512635148795234/
