Postby captain crazy [OP] » February 20th 2011, 5:58am

Hello everyone, My Name is William Crazy Lacy Furmage, I'm an Original Vans BMX Freestyler for the early 80s. I later got into Chevy cars. I own a 1988 Chevy Astro with 245,000 miles. I've had it for 10 years. Bought it with 210,000 mile for $2100. It's Black on the top side and Silver on the bottom with the aluminum running boards, roof rack 2 wheel drive. I Call it the Earnhardt special, because it looks like a Earnhardt paint job after his GM ride from one of his years in racing? The silver is starting to fade a little. I also own a Bright Orange 1967 Chevy II Nova with a 283 eng, 350 turbo trans, b&m shifter, thurst mufflers, 15'' Rally wheels, headers. etc. I bought the Nova as a bucket for $1500 about 14 years ago. I also own a 1980 Datsun King Cab 5 speed about 13 years ago. I live in the Ca Desert.

Nice to meet other Chevy lovers! :wave:

GET OUT! GO AWAY! FORUM IS FULL!

:p Welcome to another internet forum! BMX in the 80's huh...I remember reading the comic "radical Rick" back in the day, though I didn't have any interest in the scene.
