Greetings to all by GMman on Sep 04 2010, 9:13am
Well, finally join the group this afternoon. Thought I would share some thoughts with you. Born in NE Arkansas and in my 50's. My first truck at age sixteen was 1970 GMC 2DR 2WD, 292 L6 motor. It would peg the speedometer out a will and could hold it there for a long time. Came with factory AC, AT, PS, PB, LWB. I drove that truck everywhere hunting, highway and all points in between. Changed tires to 16 inch with mud grips on back and highway tread tires on front. Had a camper that was home built out of wood on it, had two or three antennas for CB and scanner.

That old motor would run,but didn't get any fuel mileage. Sometimes 10 mpg! I put hei pack, dual point distributer, hei spark plug wires. I was happy with it, and back then gas was 50c a gallon or so. I finally years later plugged in a 350 V8 with competition cam, holley carb. It didn't tear up much, lets see a blow out,a dropped valve spring, ball joint. It towed so many different vehicles for others. Gun rack in back window for hunting and toolbox for all the other stuff. Would take it back, if I could find it again..

Like many of my vehicles, it was a great rig. Back in the good ole days I worked part time and most every weekend and still went to school, graduated, paid my vehicle insurance, and owned two vehicles "other was 68 Mercury Montego with 302 Boss and tunnel ram intake "that were paid for. Sure miss those days and know most of you have stories like this. I would love to read yours.

01 Sierra SLE rebirth by ilyes on Jul 16 2012, 2:44pm
Well, after changing the plugs, and seeing the passenger manifold is cracked, I thought it would be a good day, as I just located the exhaust leak.
I also hooked up the belt, as I didn't have any power steering when they dropped the truck to my garage.

So, I start it, and then I can see water spraying all over the place, and steering fluid too. Engine knocks but the worst is after a minute, one of the cylinders stops working and sounds like I removed the plug. After it cools down, starts fine and no real noise, but as soon as it heat up a bit, hell breaks loose.

That engine seems to be beyond repair :(
I'm gonna have to sell my Monte Carlo to get a used engine and all the parts I'm missing or need replacement

Wheels almost lost!! by Silverado Joe on Apr 03 2013, 1:50am
I was scheduled for a shift starting at 4am on a sunday morning about a 2 weeks ago. At around 2 or 3 there was a storm that caused some of my neighbors alarms to go off that i noticed but slept through. I woke up at 3:30 threw on my clothes and jumped in my truck. It started normal as always and i drove less than 3 feet and noticed there was a problem. I hopped out of the truck and all four wheels were one lug away from falling off my truck. I called into work and told them i couldnt make it in and then called onstar. they sent a tow truck to put the wheels back on for me and while the driver was lifting the truck, a chevy truck started to pull up the street and noticed the tow truck and peeled out driving away from my street. So apparently what happened is they were trying to steal my wheels and the storm scared them away. There was one lug on each wheel. They had planed to come back and take the wheels but i tried to drive away before they could finish. Lesson learned about $1,000.00 later. New code alarm system with tilt sensor and locking lug nuts on my truck will hopefully prevent this in the future. The dealership told me that i was the fifth truck that came in in march with stolen wheels. Theives really love those Chevy trucks so you guys lock up your rides!

Houndstooth bowtie by mudsquid on Jul 30 2013, 12:22am

I am a huge Alabama fan, and I saw this on another truck recently, so I had to have it for my truck.

The decals went on pretty smoothly with an exception on the front. I guess because the front emblem is beveled to the point to where it makes it difficult to put them on there. Shout out to http://www.scimpressions.com/houndstooth-print-chevy-bowtie-emblem-overlay-wrap/ for the decals.
