Joined this group some time ago, even posted a couple of times, but never did introduce myself. Time to fix that I think.
My name is Gordy, I live on the west coast of Canada. I've been a truck driver most of my adult life, so chances are good I have been to your town at one time or another,when I wasn't runing up to the mines in northeren B.C., I was runing 48 states and across Canada. I met alot of great people while I was trucking down south, and from what I am seeing on this forum,I have met a whole bunch more. To those of you that have already welcomed me to the forum, THANK YOU, to the rest,I ame looking forward to talking to you.
My interests have always been automotive, usually some kind of muscle car,but I've always had a truck (pu) for daily driving. This is the 2nd ford truck in my life,the first was a 67 Merc 3/4 ton,352 4 speed (Canadian model), a great truck, comfortable as a rock with wheels,and just as strong.
When i got my 5th wheel,I needed somthing a little bigger than the 1/2 ton Chev I had at the time, so looking around I found the F350 sitting in a lot near my place. Since I picked it up bone stock, I have been adding goodies to it as fast as i can. Just after I got it I got cut of by a Jetta going on the freeway entrance by work, I didn't like that, so in go the mods, last week the same car tried it again, BAD LUCK, it didn't happen, played with him till he had to back off and get in behind LOVED IT!!!
Looking at changing my SCP to either a DP or a TS, from what I have read, they should be good for a little more power, plus the on dash adjustability would be nice. Also looking into either meth or propane injection as well as trans upgrades.
Thanks for your time to read this, looking forward to all the interesting people,and info for a long time to come.
