    I've had 4 rancheros over the last 30 years. Currently a 1958 w/ many modifications done by previous owner. 428 , 4 speed, a/c disk brakes front. A driver , not show car. Love these cars. Another 58 interceptor on the back burner. Don’t think I’ll ever get to it or maybe, time will tell. Anyway glad to be part of a like minded enthusiasts group! I’m new to this digital world but I’m trying hard. Thnx

    Welcome. Would love to see some pics. You might need to crop or compress them to under 1 mb.

    Where you from with Dry heat?

    Born & raised in Detroit, came to Vegas 1983. When I saw blue sky’s, no rust on the cars ( unlike Detroit) I said that’s for me! Living here ever since.

    Vegas was my brother Geoff's favorite city. He drove for Valley Foods during his time there, loved the glitz and "chingchingching." Funny story: Geoff called Mom and Dad (and I was there for the call), and he and his wife had their daughters out for the day. So their second oldest wants to talk to grandma and grandpa, and Geoff puts her on the phone. After saying "Hi, Grandma," very excitedly, and loud enough for me to hear, Mom asks, "So where are you?" And Leah answers, "We're at the place where Daddy plays the slots!" Dad and I look at each other and snicker, and Geoff gets back on the phone, to hear Mom say, "They'll rat you out every time!"

    Welcome... when you have the pictures you want, find a picture editor you like and save the pictures as a .JPEG file. That will usually make them under 1MB (meg), then you can just click the "upload a file" (bottom right of the post), and select the file. it will self upload. WAHLAH! Done. If making them a jpeg doesn't do it on its own, you will have to resize them to a smaller size to get under the 1 meg size limit.
