    Default Kinda new

    Well I've been reading on here for quite a while now, but haven't had much to say myself.

    Just picked up my first M35A2. Great condition and a beauty to drive. I also have a couple M101's that I store coal in for my burner during winter. Makes a great coal bin that I can take to get filled up and just back to the basement door. Less shoveling the better!

    Now that I have my M35, I'll be looking for some parts and such. Thinking I'm going with the M105 bob and 395's. Hopefully someone in my area can help me find parts for a reasonable price. Shipping sucks. And these parts are heavy!

    I also have some stuff I'd like to offer up for trade but I see that the forum isn't all that friendy for newbies until I make a bunch of posts (and at my rate it will take about 10 years !!)

    I'm also into Jeeps and rock crawling, have an old Nova muscle car, and about 15 antique tractors that take up some of my play time!

    Been about 6 years of looking for the right truck when I had funds to blow, so finally got myself into the MV hobby.

    Welcome to the Green Iron Laughing Accademy.

    Muscle cars, rock crawlers, old tractors and now Military Vehicles.

    You are sooooooooo screwed.
    And the Dark Man said to him, "I will set you high in my artillery. You are the man I want." Then he saw an army of ten thousand driving across the desert and into the mountains, a rough beast of an army whose time had come at last. And riding in a giant tanker, he saw himself, and knew that the truck was filled with Napalm. Behind him, in a long column, were trucks loaded with bombs, mines, plastic explosive, flame throwers, flares, heat seeking missiles, grenades, machine guns and rocket launchers. The dance of death was about to begin, and already the strings of the fiddles and guitars were smoking and the stench of brimstone and cordite filled the air.

    Yes, welcome to the hobby.

    Neat toys. It's cool to see musclecars at road racing/autocross type events.

    There are a lot of members in PA. You should have no problem finding others who will make your sickness even worse.

    The 101 trailers are really handy. What kind of parts might you be on the look out for?
    Don't worry about the size difference

    Anything to improve my deuce.

    Planning a bob job in the next year, so I'm gonna start collecting parts now. Springs, 105 trailer, 395 tires or maybe even bigger, rims, winch. Those are the standard things. But I am always up for something different if the price is right (Thus why I have a deuce now!)

    Even whole trucks or parts trucks. I think I got my dad hooked now too so he wants to get one and keep it stock.

    PM me if you have anything I might want, Keep in mind with all my hobbies I'm usually broke and looking for the right deal .
    Thanks!
