Hi
I'm new here, but not new to cars and trucks. I'mm almost 77 and a retired mechanic, mostly experienced in, for America, what are called "import cars".
I drive an '81 Chev short wide C10. Pretty much a stocker.
Bob

Not sure, never did this before. maybe a few pics of our trucks will help, what we have done with them lately.
Any ideas?

OK, Here's mine. It doesn't do the photo justice. laugh I have spent a lot of time the last two months chasing an ignition problem. After checking, testing, and replacing every connection and component of my Mallory Unilite I decided to make a desk lamp out of it and put the original points distributer back in. It runs great again.

Great pic. Methinks your truck would fit in at "Burning Man". I don't mean you should burn it up either.

That takes place not far from here and I have no interest in going. It is enough to see them onr the way there and on the way home. My wife and I went to college in Berkley and Oakland in the '60s. I don't need any flashbacks. crazy
