My name is Michael, I live in Oregon and am married to my best friend Cindy, who's aka MisFit. Between us we have 8 kids (each of us was married once before) and 4 grandchildren.
I work for an electric utility, on the Hydro Resources side of the generation business, as the Director of Project Management. Been with the company almost 28 years.
I'm a car and truck nut...have been since I was just a little tyke. I've owned a lot of vehicles in my day. Currently I own:
1. A 1985 Chevrolet K5 Silverado Blazer.
2. A 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Club Cab.
3. A 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor (MisFit's Ride)
4. A 2006 Chrysler 300C SRT8.
I join these forums to read up on vehicles that I have and to, in my own small way, pass along what I have learned to help others. I like doing the research that is needed to answer a member's question. In doing so, I learn a lot myself.
But the real reason I join the forums is the people. I have met sooo many cool ladies and gents on the forums. And meeting someone face to face after interacting with them on the Web is the real reward. I've made a lot of good, lifetime friends on these forums and wouldn't trade those relationships for anything.
I have a lot of hobbies besides cars, trucks and forums. I coach adult coed softball in the summer, I bowl year round, I coach youth football, love to read and listen to music, I make videos (Search YouTube.com for anything tagged MADCSRT8) and I love photography. My Photobucket albums are open to the public. Here's a link:
You are more than welcome to go checkout the pics there.
My YouTube account is also open to the public. Here's a link:
But first and foremost in my life is my family. Without them, I am nothing but an empty shell.
Now, about those pics...
My previous LX, a 2006 Chrysler 300C:
The car the 300C replaced, my beloved 1995 ImpalaSS, stolen from me in March of 2007. I still miss it!
My 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Club Cab,the day I bought it, 12/16/08...Redshift Rider:
The 1999 Ram is gone, replaced with this 2007 Ram MegaCab:
My 300C SRT8 (Don't ask for more pics of this car...I'll bury you with them! ):
I saved the worst for last...me when this pic was taken I was thinking about the upcoming drive back down the mountain from our annual Mount St. Helens Cruise in the SRT8:
SO THAT'S MY STORY...WHAT'S YOURS???
