Good Day All...

I found this forum some time ago, been lurking until recently.
I have a 1986 1/2-ton Suburban that my wife drove for a while before it was slammed into by a truck whose owner failed to apply the parking brake in a steep church parking lot. At that point it had 276K miles on the original drive train, a cheapie paint job (previous owner), and a somewhat trashed interior (kids). I striped the interior and had the paint media blasted. Once media blasted we found very thick patches of body filler in the right front door and fender along with other defects previously obscured.
I converted the core support and grill to the 91 design, new Dupont paint (never again), all new carpet, GM crate 350, TBI, rebushed front and rear, rearched springs with additional leaf, 241C Transfer case, 3.73:1 front and rear, 31" BFG AT-TA KO's, 15" Weld Hurricane wheels.
Close to nine years later, we made our a road trip to Nebraska with it where the transmission failed. I had a transmission put in and hit the road for Pennsylvania, then New York, and finally home. Made it as far as Ohio (July 2nd 11:30PM) before the transmission failed again (front pump). Had a good friend drive my truck (2500HD) up to Ohio and we trailered it back on the 4th of July.

Still have much to do which seems silly in a day where you can buy a 4X4 Suburban for next to nothing but here I am, none the less.

I am a former professional automotive technician, a competitive Silhouette shooter (thus the name), a , somewhat the computer geek and I brew my own when I can.

Welcome aboard. I'm fond of the old 'burbs myself, and spent way more on my last one than it was worth. Got rid of it a couple months ago, and ya know what? I miss that damn truck more than any other car I've ever gotten rid of.

On the prowl for another one...

Getting too big, I don't know when the last time was you were here but it is a far cry from what it was when we moved here in 1984. Apartments (regular and low rent) and crappy modern postage stamp housing everywhere.

I haven't been there in many years. I was there from 1980-1994. LIved in Wellsbranch and Windermere when they were new subdivisions. I remember when it only had 1 stop light near downtown. Then everything blew up. Happening everywhere.
