Happy Saturday friends! @d.j.hodgkinson sent in his 87 Silverado which has a cool backstory. He said, "Another thing about the truck is that I bought it from the original owner that bought it from a dealership in Las Vegas! And it’s now in Michigan with me. I think it’s been a little over 4 years now. When I bought it, it was all original. even still had the frames on the license plates from the dealership he bought it from. He brought it here and was only here for maybe a month before I bought it lol still had Nevada plates on it!" I guess what happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas (cheesy). We are closed for the weekend but you can always browse our online store www.tuckersparts.com
FEATURED RIG: From @tenfourmag, the conclusion✨
"These days, Joe is semi-retired, but he still comes to the office every day to stay connected, tinker around and keep busy. Joe and his wife Emily have been married for 66 years and the couple has four grown boys – Greg, Gary, Jeff and Ronnie…Gary has his own fleet of fuel tankers. Jeff is now the president of Gomes & Sons, handling most of the day-to-day operations and dispatching, while Greg oversees the oil accounts and lubricants, and runs the ranch...This man (Joe) is as good as they come, and the epitome of what it means to be honest, strong-willed and dependable. And, if his boys are anything like him, Joe Gomes & Sons will continue fueling pride in the trucking industry for many years to come."

Quite a productive day for Betty Blue. Pulled the intake/exhaust manifold, put in a new gasket, shortened the OG exhaust (it's custom 😂) and did a full lash adjustment. She fired and idled for the first time in a couple months and the "new" exhaust sounds pretty damn good. Ran into bit of a problem at the end, she started leaking oil from the distributor. Anyone have ideas as to why?... do they have an o-ring of some sort? Any ideas please comment below. Other than that it was amazing to hear the old girl fire and run again. Hopefully when this issue is resolved I can get an exhaust sound clip.
