New member, long time car guy from Sacramento

Postby AlpineVan [OP] » October 21st 2020, 8:42pm

Hello everyone, I just joined up and I'm looking to have a good time. I bought a 1995 GMC Safari AWD about a month ago. My parents had Astros when I was a kid, so I'm looking forward to living this nostalgia.

Nice, the lake looks like a great place to go and camp for a few days. Really close and do-able.

I'm gonna use my own thread here to experiment with posting pictures. Don't know how this particular forum does it but I'm about to find out, I guess.

If you're seeing these, meet my new van. I immediately put 29" all terrains and lifted the torsion bars. A little bit of fender hammering and the tires clear with no rub.

Looks like the attachment uploader on this site is pretty easy - THANKS ADMINS!

The inside of this thing is MINT. I'm probably going to start a build thread in the appropriate forum

That interior is CLEAN! You really did find a nice one.

Trolls take away from productive work, best to ignore them & go about your business.

Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... “May be hard to believe... President Trump should rest easy and concede what was in fact a foregone conclusion: Another OLD MAN won with only about 50% of the Change Believers/Fools showing up."
