    Lol I was wondering who would notice that. We had it for our gender reveal and then we had a party for our friends wedding.

    Nothing to really report with the truck. Parked it for the winter a couple weeks ago when the roads were salted during a storm we had.

    Threw a new 195 degree thermostat in with fresh coolant right before. Temperature fluctuates like it should so she’s running good.

    On a side note, our baby girl decided to arrive a month early on Thanksgiving morning! Lately my time consists of diaper changes and bottle time (milk for her & beer for me). Loving her like crazy.

    Truck looks great. Congrats on the new addition. Kids are great, even better when they grow up and move out. I got 4 of em. Down to 3. One grew up. Whatcha doin about the body rot? I am lucky. I bought my truck new in 1994. Had it rust proofed and undercoated. Then in 1995 i moved to a dry climate. No body rot. Come out to Abilene Tx. Theres lots of rust free GMT400s in our local boneyards with not a stitch of rust on em. I dont even use WD40 on the bolts to dissassemble anything. It just comes right apart.

    Well this wa
    Well this was bought new in ‘98, but northern Michigan winters took their toll. Eventually I’ll have it repaired and repainted, but for now I just plan on driving it.

    If you can make the trip out this way, the parts to fix yours are inexpensive and rust free.

    I dont want to sound ignorant, but what is a gender reveal? I just never heard of the term. Is that a Michigander way of calling it a bachelor party?
