Re: How Did You Get Started, And What Are Your Plans?
Well, I've always had an intense admiration of anything to do with automobiles. Grew up wrenching on whatever junker I was driving, and learning from my old man that if you take care of your rigs, they will take care of you. While In my younger years I was speed crazy, I grew to love the 4x4's that we had....and the roads, trails, and mountains in our area. Between my old man and his brother, over the years we rode in all sorts of rigs, '76 Power Wagon, '78 F150 4x4 w/400, an '88 F250 4x4 w302, '95 Tacoma 4x4, '93 Pathfinder, and my uncle, now on his 9th Jeep, used to haul us around in his old Jeep Commando, or whatever Jeep variation he had at the time..including and '81 Scrambler, which he bought brand new, and still has today. And for me, I've had several myself, but currently its a '90 Toyota 4x4 for me, and a '95 Jeep YJ for my wife. So, there was always a 4x4 around and we went somewhere every weekend, the mountain, the backroads, the beach, etc...And now, I'm addicted, and I'll never be without a 4x4. My only problem is that mine is a daily driver....can't afford a woods rig yet, but I'll get one sooner or later. Anyhow, thats my story... [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
