    Hello H.A.M.B.er's I've been blazing through old threads around here for about a month and figured i should post up and introduce myself to the community. I'm a super newb when it comes to old vehicles so i came here on the suggestion of my friend TurboRoadster (thanks Tim!). After reading through most of the Econoline threads I've realized; I've got a lot to learn, my truck looks "broken" to some, and red wheels are waay overdone. . .But that's what I'm working with at the moment and I dig it so far. Thanks for having me, I look forward to absorbing your shared knowledge like a sponge.

    Guess i didn't piss anyone off with my intro thread(luckily), here's a cheezy shot of the truck i picked up this weekend. . .I've always been into "ratty" rods/customs/etc, but spent most of my spare change on "old" stand up jet ski parts and restoring 70's-80's Honda Trailbikes. It's time for me to trim down the minibike/pwc fleet and start educating myself about this truck :)

    Welcome from Houston!
    Love those Econoline trucks!
    I've been wanting one myself, but my driveways full right now.
    Got any daytime pics?
