The people you meet.

So a couple of weeks ago I got the chance to meet a member, Mister-B. Also along with meeting him and his family I got to see his amazing 69 C/20. I'd have to say his daily driver is set up perfect. All of the posts/pictures that he puts up with his truck does no justice as to what it really is. All the small things that he has put into his truck makes a big difference. And that being said, seeing his truck in person really gave me the itch to start working on my own. So my build thread is going to start. I'm very glad to know someone locally besides you folks here on the forum, that has the same love for these trucks as I do. So you will soon know the story behind "Dead Pumpkin" and the build thread to its recovery of daily driving.

Re: The people you meet.

Hey thanks, Cody! That's nice of you to say. It was great meeting you, and hope we can do some projects together.

For those of you that don't know, Cody's truck is no slouch. He keeps pretty quiet, and doesn't post many pictures, but he's got a real gem. '67 short bed 6 cylinder. I can't wait to see the work he does to it

Re: The people you meet.

I've met a lot of forum members. Some are weird as hell, but I haven't met anyone I would kick out of my garage yet.

Re: The people you meet.

Yes, AJ is a good guy.I know first hand as I have traveled to SLC and met him and his family. I did find it funny that he saves all the greasy pain in the butt jobs on his truck until I show up just kidding AJ. He really loves these old trucks and contributes to this board all of the experience he has learned from working on his truck. If you ever go there, make him take you to the In-N-Out burger before you do any wrenching on his truck

Thanks for all your help with my brake job when you were in town. You are truly gifted at your craft

It's true

I've actually met a couple members by accident. Over the summer I was out doing my job and saw a really nice 71/72 burb next door to where I was working. A fella was outside working on it. Ended up being member ATP. Talked for over an hour or so. Real nice guy.

Re: The people you meet.

I met a gentleman two weekends ago. Was at our local Harbor Freight and he was behind me in line. Asked if that was my '72 truck. We started talking for a few minutes and learned he had a project truck that was back in North Carolina. He was stationed in Tennessee and in San Angelo for military training.

Mentioned he should get on the 67-72 chevy truck forum and he said he was on the forum. Asked him if he was doing anything right then, if he'd like to drop by and see my '78 truck. Said sure, and off we went a few blocks to the house.

I think we were both relieved to be able to talk to someone else who loves these old trucks. I kept thinking "what are the odds of meeting a forum member from another state in San Angelo, Texas, and inviting them over to see my build?" Should have bought a lottery ticket that night.

If you ever read this, Tavis, it was great to meet you and hang out a few hours. Do let us know how your truck project is coming along!

If Josh was smart, He would make a page to print out some pass-along business cards for this site. That way we could give out the site info to people we meet that are not aware of the site.
