    New in North Carolina

    Hey guys I just picked up a Gen 1 last week! It's a project truck. The previous owner had used it fora daily driver for the last ten years, and it's done truck things and it shows. The PO decided to sell it after the intake gaskets started to leak and to get something better on gas.

    I have always liked Ford Trucks and seeing a Lighting always puts a smile on my face. I never thought I would own one.

    The plan is to get it running right clean it up and enjoy it for alittle while. I will sooner or later have to sell the Lighting or my 87 LX Coupe, I can't keep them both long term.

    I can't see the original post with the information. Don't know if it's my phone? A cook out sounds great. I normally try to take my mustang to test and tune about once a month. I just started a diy turbo install. If the L is running and the mustang is not I will take it my next outing. I normally go to Roxboro, Galot, or Wayne County.

    I'd like to go but doubt I'll have mine on the road by then. I'm doing a bunch to it and I don't even have it registered here in NC yet. lol
