    Well.. I took my new girl out last night to break her in. Took her off roading and got stuck in the mud for a good 3 hours!! SHE'S OFFICIALLY MY TRUCK! New speakers and CD player coming this weekend. Now all I need is some new rims and I'll be all set.

    After a good wash..

    Sounds "fun"! LOL

    I took my car in this morning for a $25 oil change and got 4 new tires and some sorta spring for the left strut or something. After $500 I officially have a "new" ride too!

    trust me.. this baby needs more than $500 worth of work. It's got a new-ish engine, new tires, and new brakes. But the transmission will probably go in the next year or two.. And I'm already getting a new windshield on Friday.

    Last august my antifreeze cable popped off while I was flying down the highway and that set the engine on fire so I did "just" pay $2800 too...

    I've been through 3 of these trucks... I started off with an 86 GMC S-15 as my first vehicle that I bought for $250 from Magma mine company when I was 14. By the time I was old enough to drive I already had it fixed up decently, except for all the rust *cough* all the body mounts were rusted through and the body sat directly on the frame instead of on the mounts *cough* I had dropped that truck (was already pretty low) but got tired of getting stuck on stuff and the super weak 4 banger.
    So a couple short years later I picked up a 1983 Chevy S-10 4x4 (first year they did 4x4), this is when I was an auto tech so I built up the 2.8l v-6 and it was still waaay too weak. It was an alright looking truck by the time I sold it though, especially for a '83.
    After that I moved on to an extended cab 2001 Chevy S-10 with the 4.3l vortech, now that was a nice motor! I really didn't get all extreme on this truck like I had the prior but it was lifted some and a few minor things to it.
    Once I married my highschool sweetheart and girlfriend for many years we decided it was time to get something that car seats could fit in so we went on the hunt of full size trucks and really didn't find any that had a lot of space in the back. So we ended up at a 2003 Dodge dakota 4x4 quad cab- it's amazing how much room is in the back seat and the rear doors open up 90degree very nice! And that's where I sit today. bottom line, I like the S-10s... my last one with the v6 vortech could kill my current one with the v8 no problem.... But this one sounds better *grin*

    PS then there is the street legal buggy for playing around in, but I think I'm going to sell it this year.

    Hey man, just letting you know I like S-10s yes, I'm a vehicle person. Even though I don't do auto tech for a living anymore.. I still most definitely do it. Have more tools now than when I quit that job. I may even enjoy it more now.
