I will admit that this is a "coming out" of sorts. I told my dad i was going to buy an F-150 and he gave me that look that only a father can give. The one that says "What the **** is the matter with you boy?".

First off I don't currently own a Ford of any kind. I was raised strictly chevy/mopar. I am NOT however biased in any way. I've always given credit where credit is due and appreciate all forms of awesome whether it be ford,chevy,dodge,mitsubishi,toyota,etc. I currently own a 1970 Chevrolet Nova, a 1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS and a 1988 Chevrolet Suburban.

The main reason I am going to buy a 2nd gen lightning is that they are different from everything I have ever had and they look terribly fun. The fact that its still a truck means its still semi practical in daily use while still being somewhat interesting. My short term goals are to obtain a stock 2nd gen with relatively low mileage. Long term goals are...

Anyway I guess I'm really here to learn as much about Lightnings and all associated topics I can within the next month as to prepare myself for the oncoming sickness that is a new project. I have already learned quite a bit from these forums and the "how-to" section is pretty sweet. I guess thats it for this rant but I'm sure theres more to come.

First off WELCOME from New Orleans.

Welcome to LR
Boy!!! you got that right.

If you got with a low milage STOCK L. KEEP IT STOCK. Leave the truck alone. Don't mod it. Don't do anything that you don't have to.
