Define alive
I live in Discovery Bay and work in Alameda, so when I go out its rarely in Alameda unless there is a show. Between house work, a new baby and other projects I don't take the truck out as much as I would like. Did the Norcal guys used to get together regularly?

I dont think so. It would be cool if we had a few peeps. Always like seeing and hearing what works or doesnt from someone local.

Glad to hear you are getting it up and running!

Mine is mainly to haul my bikes to the track and for road trips.

I am in process of the basic mods, plugs, 4lb lower, tune, cai, exhaust, lowering and new tires.

But man that stuff gets spendy

After that if I ever need more go, these apparently go crazy with some nitrous! 50hp shot with a nano kit so its always ready to rock, progressive with +30 on top.

Ohhhhhhhhh man....and a converter/valve body....

I love there is so much stuff for these trucks! LOVE the aftermarket support!

I'm in Oakland. I'd love to have a get together of some sort. A few weeks ago I was part of an SVTPerformance.com "run" from Sonoma Raceway, up the Lakeville Highway to Petaluma, over to the coast and down Highway 1. It was a kick in the ass with lots of high performance Fords, a few Corvettes and motorcycles to help stop traffic at appropriate places.

I've heard another is planned for September over in Half Moon Bay. I'll keep you posted.

I'm in Pleasant Hill and work in Concord. Just moved from Hawaii a few months ago so new to the area. So far all I have done was a visit to Cars and Coffee at the auto museum in Danville. I go to school one day a week in San Jose for the next 5 weeks and then to Oakland for another year an a half. I have an 03 Sonic Blue.

See ya,
Craig
