Default New guy near New Orleans

Hello!

My wife and I just bought a 2006 H3 Adventure with about 135k miles. The H3 is her new daily driver. She has always wanted one so, happy wife - happy life. Looking forward to learning more about this cool little truck and doing the maintenance on it.

I'm a ham radio operator, so I'd love to connect with other hams on the boards.

Thanks!

Don

Doc Olds, huh? I had a '68 Cutlass dressed as a 442 for awhile. Had the 455. Fun car but the Comp Cams Xtreme Energy cam was so rough it would hardly even idle on regular gas. Had a '73 4-speed Trans Am before that but Hurricane Katrina wanted it more. I now have a '78 Trans Am.

Must have been a re-power, as 68s did not have 455s....only 400s. Went through a bunch of 442s back in the day, only ever had one Cutlass, 72 pace car colored convertible w/ W25 Ram Air hood. Brother-in-law still has it. I am down to one, the old black on black 1970 442.
