Montana Members?

Howdy folks, don't pick on the newbie!!! LOL
I was wondering how many folks we have in Montana. I am in Great Falls.

My current ride is a 97 F-150 SCAB 4x4 with the 4.6. I have done catback with 4" SS tips. It has been chipped. I have also acetoned my emblems and antenna. I have installed diamond plate rail caps, tailgate cover and toolbox. I also have a 3" PA body lift in the garage waiting to be installed. This truck will go to the wife soon, as I am looking to buy a 72 F-100 4x4 with a 390 and 4spd to be a hunting rig and project truck.

Kalispell here. Sounds like a couple of nice trucks you have going there. I haven't counted the number of Montana members lately, so let's see how many post over time. It's been a little slow, but when winter hits and after hunting season...the boards really pick up.

My truck, you can check out in my gallery. Also some of my other cars and trucks I've owned. Just click a users name and click the gallery link and you can check out anyone who has set a gallery up. Some nice rigs around, for sure!

Billings here. In fact, I just moved here in April and I love it. Moved from Reno and the people are great, scenery is awesome and no emmisions tests!! I have an 86 F-250 4x4 HD with a 460 and t-19. No go fast parts yet as I'm working on my 72 Pontiac Ventura II, but soon it shall begin!

Yeah, Billings is a nice area. I'm used to sagebrush and brown. Here it trees and green. Everyone I've talked to says that we're in a drought, but to me, with all the rain we had earlier this summer, that would be 2 years worth of rain in Reno. My Pontiac has only 58,118 miles on it and I still have EVERY registration slip from the original owner, every reciept for work done to it and even the original dealer key tag! I'm replacing the suspension right now with poly-graphite and original ride-height springs, so in a couple of weeks you'll see me tearing up the pavement!

Mont974x4:
I doubt very much that I'll sell this Pontiac o'mine. The original owner gave it to my grandpa one day and he drove it for about 6 years. He used to tease me with it saying he was going to give it to me and laugh while I went broke fixing it up. When he passed away, I got the car and so far I've proved him right, every extra $ I get goes into it.

Another Billings man here. You might not hear from me often, but I'm around. I'm gonna try to show up more regularly though, 'cause this time Mr. T was waiting for me in the doorway cracking his knuckles.
