Greeting all, I've been reading for almost a decade and have finally decided to add my 2 cents. First off, I have to thank all of you, as I have gleaned alot of info from this forum as a guest over the years. I prefer to wrench but spent alot of time reading posts here during 2 deployments to Iraq. There wasn't anything to wrench on there, but some limited time to read (after talking to the family of course). As a native of Vallejo, CA I was inspired by old members of the Slicks, Chaparalles, Tapet Twisters, and North Bay Rodsters car clubs. I was raised with a love of things traditional and am (with the help of a gearhead wife) raising four kids the same way. Uncle Sam has seen fit to keep me in my wife's home state of Utah, so I try to stay active in the traditional scene here. I am a charter member of Warlords C.C., Morgan , Utah and have been President of an almost inactive military club, the Bombers. We don't stay in one place very long these days. Once again, thanks to all the long time posters, I've learned alot. I look forward to positive exchanges on line and, hopefully, in person with alot of you. Best Regards, Erik Warlords C.C.-We remember the past and choose to repeat it!
