New guy Portland

I couldn't find the new member thread so i figured i would post here
Many thanks to fabmandelux for the invite

My name is Bryan and i like short walks on long piers

Grew up in a Chevy family. Nothing but Chevy's and Buicks. My Uncle had a 1977 F series truck but we loved him anyway.

Fast forward 25 years and i find myself the proud owner of a 1971 F250.
390/auto trans
257,000 miles on the body

Plans are to do a mild resto on it to make it a bit more livable.

No major issues to tackle. I'm sure it will be fun. Can't wait to chat and get idea's from everyone.
