    Default New Fella from PA!

    Howdy folks! My name's Darryl, from frosty ole' PA! Thanks for having me here on the forums!

    I decided to swing on in because I'm looking to take the plunge into the wonderful world of military vehicles! Looking to buy a CUCV, M1008 or M1028, as a reliable daily driver work horse! Down the road, after me and my soon-to-be wife purchase a house and I've got some ground to play around on, I really want to join you big dogs and get a Whistler turbo M35!

    I'm looking forward to learning whatever I can from you guys as I jump down this rabbit hole!

    Since you haven't bought anything thing yet there is still time to turn back. Know once you are bit and contract the green disease there is no cure and you are along for the ride.

    Unfortunately BenRoberts, I caught the disease the first time I heard a C Turbo come through town! I've had the fever ever since!

    A Gentleman named cucvrus actually just told me he has one, EXACTLY what I was looking for (pretty much stock M1028 with the pickup bed), and he's not all that far away! We'll see how it goes!
