Going Back to Cali!

I wasn't sure where to post this one, but I am on my first visit to the Bay Area (Oakland, San Francisco Area) for business.

My impression was that I was going to see a lot of rice grinders,psychedillac painted VW's, and Lenardo Decaprio hybrid wanna bee's! (There are more hybrids than in Tx, which goes to show some folks will buy ANYTHING even if it doesn't make sense!)

I have been pleasantly suprised to see a number of oil burners! Lifted and customized! There are plenty of PSD's, and Farm Combines (Cummings), and a few Durasnacks. I will try to get some pictures to post if possible!

I was looking for PSD's and oil burners though, not the latter!

Going to Visit Alcatraz on Saturday!

Cool. Enjoy your time here! Alcatraz is a blast. Hope you get time to walk around Fishermans Wharf and Pier39 in SF too. It's a fun day doing that.

Hey I am in Livermore..... Bay Area. About 35 min from Alameda.

Come out and check out some Duty's we have here.

We have a 6.0L top end motor job getting picked up tomorrow but we just had the 05 SD project truck dropped off for the Nitrous Express kit install. Couple other Ford's sitting here also.
