    Re: NOW Really Stay off the Roads!!

    Wow. I haven't been online much since yesterday and I didn't know this thread was already started. haha

    I will let you folks know that I am not a car person. Cars are for getting from A to B, and I'm not into modifying cars or anything like that. Having worked in Manhattan for years, living in Astoria, and for a multitude of other reasons, driving never really appealed to me.

    But, I recently decided that where I currently reside, and considering my commute to JFK each day, that it was time to face the music and get a car. I was just about to lease a new car in 2 weeks when a relative that I grew up with told me he was moving away, and would have to get rid of his truck. I, for the sake of memories and not letting him down, took ownership.

    I've driven this truck many times before, and I'm very excited about this, especially compared to the car I was going to lease. Though I never was a car person, this is one vehicle that I'd already been in love with for years.

    This is my 1992 Chevrolet K1500 Silverado.



    It's actually in excellent shape, but I will be working on this a bit to maintain its appearance and longevity of operation. Doesn't have that many miles, and all that really NEEDS to be done are to add new tires. The engine sounds wonderfully, and I have a great sound system in there, too, but it does eat up gas quite a bit.

    You folks will see it out spotting soon.

    NICE looking ride Phil. And my keen (4) eyes detected the photo was taken at Plaineview !

    Good Luck on the gas bill thought. As we briefly discussed when you where thinking about this at least it's not a "chick car".

    Best of luck with your first ride of vehicle ownership !

    Cheers

    Congratulations Phil! Not a bad truck, for a Chevy :D
    It's big enough to stand in the back and shoot over fences, and plenty of room for refreshments - the perfect spotting ride!

    Nice truck!

    The Saudi Prince's decision on whether to go with the gold or aluminum A380 has certainly become a little easier...

    Just think, now you can subject yourself to exorbitant insurance costs and skyrocketing gas bills like the rest of us!

    Now all you have to do is throw some muffler tips on it, cover the back window with a confederate flag, put up a gun rack in the back, find some hunting bumper stickers and be sure to drive at all times in cutoff shirts and cammo hats with the window down and left arm hanging out and you'll be real set!

    You should definitely consider getting some truck nuts for the hitch though....

    Re: NOW Really Stay off the Roads!!

    Thanks, guys. I do agree that this really fits my personality, and there aren't many vehicles that can do that. It's loud, obnoxious and shows an unnecessary amount of strength. haha. There are also a few other features of the truck which are up my alley.

    Clark, the hunting is literally right around the corner, and I actually have a Dale Earnhardt flag inside the truck!

    Tommy took a pic of me gassing it up last night for $3.73. Painful.

    I'll have to pass on the Confederate Flag. I will be visiting neighborhoods that might not agree with that. It MIGHT work against me. haha

    Truck Nuts sound awesome.
