    Gday Steve and Glenda. Welcome to the fold. There’s a wealth of info here and look forward to your adventures. You certainly would have seen a lot of country driving Semis.

    2.8's Sound great, but a worked 3.0L goes better

    Welcome Steve and Glenda. Check out the topic for our next Meetup in September.

    Traveling Oz would be amazing. Plenty of places we have seen, but so many more to explore.
    The only thing better than fishing... is catching a fish...
