My vintage truck project - 73 Dodge pick up

Welcome to the first edition of the Maryland Vintage Truck Club newsletter.

I'm David Bruce and I wanted to start a Vintage truck club in Maryland because I think older trucks deserve to grow old gracefully, just like I am:)

Over the years I've had more than my share of vintage pickups, at the time they weren't considered *vintage*, they were just old! In the 80's when the auto industry began installing computers and sensors and other high tech gadgetry, the technology just wasn't up to the geekyness factor that the gadgets offered.

The car or trucks (even big rigs) computers worked OK, the sensor technology wasn't up to the task. Extreme weather conditions of blistering heat or shivering deep freeze ruined the sensors.

It was right then and there that I resolved to ONLY purchase vehicles that had 6 wires and I knew where they all went.

This is the first post...

The task of setting up all of this web stuff combined with what it's going to take to make this a 'real club' complete with articles of incorporation and such are forcing me to post 'itty bitty pieces' as I go along

more coming
