Is that it no one else???? Want to see if you get any one from Alamogordo or the base. Spent 5 years down there. I loved it. If I had the chance and things were right I would move back in a heart beat!!!

I live over in Rio Rancho, pretty much grew up in Albuquerque.
My current project is a 1949 Ford F1 with Cadillac power. The truck is pretty much a morphodite with parts on it ranging from the 40's up through the 2000's and from all the major manufacturers. I'm currently in the process of building the MegaSquirt computer and changing the truck over to port fuel injection.

I'll jump in here. I am from Louisiana. Work in the oil field in west Texas. Almost in New Mexico Probably 10 min away. I am spreading the word about the New Mexico chapter. I have a few people that work for me from New Mexico. I am trying to get them to join Fte And the new mexico chapter.

I have a 51 F1 all original that I cant wait to start a resto on. If there are any good places to wheel in South West New Mexico I may be interested.

Hi guys!

I am down in Truth or Consequences. Been here about 29 years now. Born in Las Cruces, and grew up on a cattle ranch and apple orchard near Lake Valley (Hillsboro) New Mexico. I was a professional mechanic from the mid/late sixties up until about 1983. I changed professions into Information Technology and now own and run a small national ISP. I have always had Fords, but love all Detriot iron. My car passion, other than my PU's is mid year (C2) and Generation three (C3) Corvettes. I own two Stingrays a coupe and a convertible. As my sig shows I have a coupe of "Classics" (I vividly remember when they were new ) Pickups. My 77 will be rolling soon.

Nice to have a NM group. Albuquerque is a bit far for me, but doable periodically.

When you said the Owl Cafe, I was hoping you were talking about the one in San Antionio .....

Anyway looking forward to meeting you all!

Ryan,
I go to Alamogordo about once a month, I was just there last week.

Robert,
Down in the oil patch huh? cool, I used to work the SE part of the state and spent alot of time in that area; Hobbs, Lovington, Carlsbad, and all the little spots in between. Not sure about "wheelin" around that area, probably some great spots along the caprock. Over in the SW part of the state they do some crazy wheelin. Las Cruces has the annual Chili Challenge (you missed it for this year, I think it was early April)

Ken,
Sounds like a cool project!

rjent,
I pass through TorC every couple of weeks (in fact I'll be rolling through this afternoon) I work all over the SW part of the state and spend alot of time down in Cruces. I typically stop at the Butte on my way home to play with my jetski. I too was a professional mechanic for awhile (83-96). I started about the time you were getting out of it. Now I get to keep my hands clean...LOL (except for my stuff)

Bobby

I've been in Santa Fe for about 15 yearsI moved here after I got out of the Navy. I just bought my first Ford Truck, a '99 F250 extra cab 4x4. I have fallen in love with my power stroke.

I am an avid paintballer, and try to play at least every other Sunday. I am looking forward to talking to a bunch of you guys and gals.

rjent, I have a '75 Stingray sitting in my carport waiting on me to put a new engine in it.

Very cool!

If you need any help with the Stingray let me know. Lots of neat stuff available for the old "sharks" now!

I used to paintball every weekend! I am getting a little old now. Depends on what kind of paintball(in') you do!

I still have a manual feed gas fed gun around somewhere still. Just shows you how long it's been for me!
