Haze gray and underway? "Needs of the Navy" is about the only reason I can think of to leave San Diego and go to Norfolk!

San Diego to Norfolk (by the way the locals pronounce it NAW-***) huh? sounds like a Navy guy? Norfolk is about 2-1/2 hrs from us and we get up that way a couple times a year to race on the concrete launching pad for the large aircushion amphibious landing craft known as ACU4.

Voneville,

welcome to FTE... without a doubt the best source for information... you have to be judge of the value of that information... and we do not discriminate... we offer an equal amount of bs with the good stuff...

there are a few "odd year" truck owners here that can give you a hand but most of us are pouring bucket fulls of money and time into the 48-56 holes...

hopefully you'll be surprised at how helpful we actually can be...

check out the tech article section and the stickys at the top on suspensions and stuff... lots of good info there and if you're really patient and understanding the search function can dump a bunch of good stuff on you...

feel free to jump right in like a veteran and harass every noob like we do... it's fun !!!

enjoy

John

I promise not to ask which frame clip will fit my truck, if IFS is better then a solid axle, or how to add power steering without modifying my front end!

Thanks again for the warm welcome. Yes, I am in the Navy. Yes that is the only reason I am leaving San Diego. I was raised in the Bay Area, but my Dad was born here, my grandparents have lived in the area since the late 40's.

I am looking forward to southern life though. I hear southerners are nice people and they use their blinkers, which makes them A-Ok in my book

And you best believe I'll give the n00b's heck with the best of them

oh, and I have some new pics for the gallery...

I was stationed at Norfolk, too. I was 6 months old. Welcome to FTE, where we all can act 6 months old.

Voneville,
WOW! great looking truck!! and quite a handsome little helper there too!

I love those wheels. If you ever want to part with them let me know. I have a set of slotted mags and some Cragar SS 5 spokes, but I've always loved those old mag 5 spokes.

Thanks for getting some pics up!
Bobby

This is a common joke in my area of the planet dealing with just that topic:

When you move to the South you have to accept the fact that we don't use our blinkers. If you happen to see one of us with one on, remember, it was on when we bought the car.

That is not me. I use mine, but thats the local joke.

I'll start a gallery when I get some descent pics. My truck was primarily used as a camping vehicle so it's got low miles. It's only changed hands twice since leaving the dealership in Huntington Beach in 1957 and making it's way to my home, but it's stayed local to Southern California. It will be residing in Virginia when I transfer there in January.

I cut my teeth on Fords, literally. My Dad has a 68 f150 Stepside that still has the bite marks on the dash to prove it (I was teething and apperantly the foam dashes on the 60's fords made a good chew toy). It was also the first vehicle I ever drove, changed the oil on, did a break job, replaced the clutch etc.... He still has it and plans on restoring it one day. It's got the 300 I-6. If he doesn't get around to it I know it will make a great father son project for me and my son
If you need Intel from Original FoMoCo & subcontractor source material Mrfourspeed & I have them to look things up for you.
