I am the new leader of the Minnesota chapter and I need to find a way to get this chapter going. I'd like to get to know as many of you as possible and thought this might be a great way.
1) I live in NE MPLS
2) I drive a 1999 f-250 super duty diesel
3) As the leader of the club I am looking forward to arranging some GTG's (get together's).
4) My interests include All Bronco's (the older the better), Diesels, and older COE trucks.
5) I will need some help in the future with club functions so if you feel you can help and you would like to volunteer, please do so I would appreciate it.
6) Here is what I drive. How many campers do we have in the club?
Hi Tom, congrat's again for stepping up and being our new c.l.
1.) I live in Grand Rapids, Mn. "semi-retired" 30 plus yrs. truck driving veteran.
2.) Our current daily driver is a 96 Windstar....(looking at adding a real clean '95 F-150
XLT 2x4 short box, thats in need of a "fresh" engine)
3.) My interest's include just about any "vintage tin" thats pre-'70 (with a preference for
all that is "blue oval")
4.) Current project's are a '51 F-1 p/u that I'm "helping" my 17yr. old son build (his first!)
I'm so proud!! that the tradition and hobby will continue......plans are for a 460/C-6
9in., MII front end ect. and a bunch of hotrod/custom touches.....and I have my ol'
'68 galaxie wagon, original Colorado car, 390/C-6, run's and drives, needs some work
yet, not sure if I'm going to keep it, may be selling, to help fund a different project.
5.) I would be willing to help you out, at any functions if I can.....I've done alot of
volunteer work over the years and I know how hard it is to get people to step-up.
You can message me hear anytime, I'm generally on, everyday.
Don't ban high performance vehicles.................................
I look forward to one day seeing your sons truck. I love the pre 64 trucks and cars. I have been searching for an early ford COE to make into a crew cab to pull my camper. Thanks for stepping up, I had 9 people look at this thread and you were the first to write. Thanks for offering to help if you can, I appreciate it. I usually come up to Embarrass in August so maybe we can get some of the iron range crew together when I do. Thanks for writing on here 9 people looked but no one shared till you, Thanks for your support
