Talking New Member from So Cal

What's good people

my names Ryan, 22 from Long Beach. CA

Never owned a truck before, driven plenty of friends and families though. Love the outdoors, camping, offroading and all that fun stuff. Just been a speed freak since I got my license 6 years ago. so Always had hondas and import cars. Doin 100 on the freeway n drag racing at Pomona Raceway.

but I'm finally gettin my life back on track (get my license back next month after losin it to my DUI case) main goal is to score myself an old narc or cop car from auction(hopefully) as my daily driver....and then finding a piece of crap Ford Ranger that I can throw in my backyard and start fixin it up for the desert. Ultimate goal is to just keep it sleeper status, pimp out the suspension hardcore and take care of a few things...then hopin to save some money and drop a 305 in the truck...figure since I like speed so much, I'd like to beef up my suspension first then put a bigger motor in so I can actually go fast and not break parts the first time out :P


i dont know what else to put really. Hate doing these introductions

Want to know some things, just ask. If you're a 562/714 local, feel free to hit me up(especially if you know alot about trucks) always lookin for some new friends who know their shit so I can learn off them once I get my ride.

enjoy your Monday, I'ma get back to fillin out job applications and drinkin my beer.
