My name is Chris. I'm 36 years old and I'm a Chevy/GMC lover and a 110% Ford/Dodge hater and I do mean hate them with a passion. I'm disabled because of a severe back problem that causes chronic low back pain all of the time.
My 1st ride is a 2002 GMC SIerra SLT that is Dark Polo Green with Pewter on the bottom 2 tone. It has the 5.3 liter motor and a 3.73 posi rearend and has less than 25,000 miles on it. It's all stock, but I do want to do a few things to it starting with wheels & tires.
I have time trialed it on an 1/8 dragstrip and it ran a 10.13 @ about 70mph with a 2.19 60' time.
My next and most fun ride is my 1972 Chevelle that I previously drag raced religously til 2002 and that's when I had to quit work because of the pain in my back.
All the specs on the Chevelle are as follows:
72" Chevelle #3475 lb w/o driver, #3700+ lbs w/driver

Car is very very dependable & streetable but trailor to the track, still has all accessories w/ power steering & alt. & battery in stock location, but has no A/C
Can run 93 octane gas with no problems at all, but I do mix 93 & 110 race fuel to race
Best ET in 1/8 mile is 7.32 @ 93+ mph W/1.52 60' on Hoosier 29"x10" slicks on 10"wide Weld Draglite rims
Average 7.50s in hot Alabama summertime W/1.5-1.6 60's.....depending on tune up on crappy BG Carb
My 3rd and last ride is a 1990 Honda Prelude that is in very good condition. It is the gas saver in the family. It has the (big) 2.1+liter 4 banger with twin over-head cams and 16 valves.
I really look forward to meeting all (or ast least most) of you. I know I'll have plenty of qestions to ask in the future about my truck and I hope I can help a lot of you guys and gals sometime.
