My name is Joseph Bello. I’m your average white American male with a few kids, wife, and the daily rigmarole. I’ve moved to South Carolina last year and I’m certain I’ll stay here till I croak. The Humidity in summer can kiss my ass, but the rest of the environment is breath taking.

About me personally: I have an ongoing obsession with vehicles. I'm at 20 motorcycles, trucks, and cars that have gone through my garage. I think I have a problem with a vehicle addiction and mentioned seeking counseling. However, when I do seek counseling, it ends up as a group of guys and gals (fellow car nuts) and we start enabling each other all over again lol.

I'm hoping that this SSR will be the last big awesome toy that I pick up. But already, my eyes started gazing around the classifieds. Shame on me. I bought my dad a miata and I’m working on that for him. My facebook marketplace feed keeps putting old buick roadmaster station wagons in my eyes and god knows I’ve got a heart for a corvette powered anything. Dear god, either help me get it and turn it into an ecto cruiser, or help me to not get another car.

Feel free to hit me up on here or friend me on facebook. If you’re nearby and want to chat, I could always use a friend. Attached is just a pic of me goofin off for halloween.

ChknMnky....Welcome to the Fanatic website. Interesting read as well. I think you may have too much time on your hands tho’ naming all of your toys? Anyway you will enjoy the folks on this SSR site and there will be a lot of information available to you through owners and the How To Library. Looking forward to meeting you in the future, May 2019 will be the next time my R sees daylight as it’s always been a warm blooded R...Nevada and Florida but it hibernates in Ohio. You just missed a fabulous Rally in Warner Robbins also! I like your Aqua Blur....I have a Parts car just like it?

Welcome from Western Canada.

There are some very valuable members on this forum with an endless supply of quality components to make your truck better.

I've been improving mine for 12 years, and am unlikely to look for another toy, because I'm so happy with the results of the improvements.

We can help you spend your money.>:)

Ciao Joseph!!
(Beautiful Man is what "Bello" means in Italian, informational only for everyone but you)!

Congrats on your purchase and welcome to this fantical family!!
Sounds like you're going to fit right in with this group.

Like Larry @HUAW and Dane @oldxr implied; now that you have the truck,
it's time to get out there and meet the family!!
Keep your eyes on the forum and join us for the next rally. :grin2:

The story isn’t too interesting. Back in my late teens/early 20s I had a lot of parties at my apartment with my roommates. Normally we played a tournament with the video game “worms”. One night we played some association game. You know the kind of games like, “take a shot if..”. We got smashed as usual and None of us remembered much of the night, but on the coffee table the next morning was a napkin with “chicken monkey” written in really poor hand writing. None of us could remember why it was so dam funny, but we knew it had us all hunched over laughing in the night. Like, neighbors threatening to call the cops, loud laughing. It ended becoming my nickname/gamertag because my handwriting resembled it the most.
