    I'm new to the forum so thought I'd introduce myself.

    I'm an old fart at 64. Been a motorhead most of my life, but haven't done much for the last 20 years or so. I decided it was time.

    I bought a 1990 short bed. 350 engine which is bone stock except shorty headers. It's an Arizona truck. I'm the third owner. The previous owner put lowering spindles in front and shackles in back. Also Crager wheels with newish tires.

    It still had the original R12 A/C system but the pressure switch on the compressor was broken and the system was flat. Compressor seized so I'm in the process of converting to R134a.

    The paint isca little rough in places but looks OK for its age and the environment it lived in for 25 of its years.

    Engine bay looks in good shape--no jury rigging I can see. That's an encouraging sign.......

    Thanks everybody! I'm pretty happy with it so far. It has some issues but after all, it is 30 years old!
