Default hello

hi everybody hows everyone doin? as you can tell im new here. my name is Craig, last i week i purchased a 08 chevy colorado. pretty base model but it gets the job done, no power windows, locks, or any of that. has AC though. it has the 2.9 4 cyl which im really hoping will give me some good MPG'* with todays gas prices. has a nearly 20 gallon capacity gas tank thats gonna be expensive to fill. anyway to tell you a little more about my self. i work in the auto business. like all others it has its ups and downs. i am a ASE certified automobile technician and actually spent about a year as a chevy technician at a chevy/hyundai dealer, so while i certainly havent seen it all ive seen a bit. i also own a 2002 dodge intrepid which is my baby you could say lol, i am a long time member on dodgeintrepid.net with many posts . i like all american cars but my blood cells are made of mopar M'*. glad to now own a GM product as well. gives me an excuse to interact with you guys.

here is a pic from the first day i brought it home
