Hello Everyone,

So the 94/95 Pathfinder MT has always been, and still is, my vehicle of choice (amazing machines), but every so often a truck is what you need, and so in that regard I've always loved the look of the Crew Cab Frontiers. The gen 1 Frontiers mind you, not the new ones. I prefer the older machines. I don't need/want airbags, power windows, seat warmers, power locks, annoying seatbelt alarms, backup cameras, etc.. Nor do I want something full of plastic parts (I'll spring for the extra fuel costs). Some enjoy silently riding down the road on a cushion of air, but I enjoy feeling every bump, hearing every creak, and having that sense of feeling throughout my entire body when something is not quite right with the vehicle. I realize this sounds ridiculous, but sometimes it truly does feel like you can form a symbiotic relationship with the older machines that you just can't get with the new ones. In addition to my 95 Pathfinder & 01 Frontier, I purchased a mint 2001 Suzuki TL1000R (bike of choice) a couple years ago. It cost a small fortune since they stopped making them in 03, and it's been a maintenance nightmare since day one (much like this Frontier I picked up last week). But... you love what you love, right? Aside from my affinity for dated machines, I also prefer to keep them bone stock. No aftermarket parts. No bling. No mods, unless it's to fix design flaws (cough.. TL1000R).


So I guess that's me in a nutshell. Being from the North-East I'm pretty sarcastic and thick-skinned, so feel free to speak bluntly around me >:D
