FNG - via Northern VA via Afghanistan
Howdy all. FNG here originally from MN but living in VA and currently working in Afghanistan for just another 3 weeks.
I've been in love with vehicles since one of my mother's old boyfriends bought us a '73 Grand am GT and a '69 Ford Torino GT. We also had a '57 Chevy pick up in there. Since then I've had an '86 mustang LX, '86 F150, and an '86 Bronco (it was a good year I guess?) After I killed all of those I got along with a '91 Eclipse (I was 18 stop making fun of me). After high school I joined the Marines and was sent to Japan, where I owned an '89 and '91 Skyline GT-S, a '93 Toyota Mark 2 Tourer V, and a '04 EVO MR.
I left the Marines in 2005 and moved back to the states after being a contractor in Japan for a few years. The first place I moved was to Hawaii in '07 and there I bought an '01 Cherokee. I then moved to VA in '08 and bought a '04 Ford Lightning, which I'm still driving. The Cherokee stayed in HI btw.
I'm here because I'm putting serious thought in to trading in the Lightning for a new GC SRT8. As it seems many are doing, I'm waiting on prices before I decide. I may keep the Lightning and just buy a Raptor to go along with it, but if I'm blown away, maybe the Jeep gets my garage spot.
At least overseas and affilitated with the military I get special pricing, but there is a very limited amount available for this amount. I'm still waiting on the guy to send me a solid price back and if there are any available. I've got 3 weeks left so I guess if it does happen it will happen quickly.
Looking forward to chatting with you all.
