My story starts out with me buying a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 brand new on my birthday back in October, 2002. Fast forward to 2004 and get my first bad lift pump. I went to Diesel Truck Resource to get help. While I was there several helped me out and told me what I needed to do. When I got to the dealer with the test I did and told the Shop Manager she was shocked and knew that I was armed with knowledge. From that point on I wanted to pay it forward to everyone. I continued my forum posting but found out retyping the same stuff over and over was just too time consuming. 2004 I created frontiernet.net/~mopar1973man yup. that was the first website made on a tiny 20 MB hard drive. I created all my pages back then hand coded HTML. I started making write up of different things and start just sharing links. This created quite the stink in the forum world and I had to leave Diesel Truck Resource I was banned by Jack Thorp. I joined Cummins Forum back in 2006 and I created a life long contact that I could support CF with articles. I continue to support people using my articles. A mistake I made was leaving my email address on the bottom of the page. Opps... I was dealing with hundreds of email wanting to add more, edit or change what I had because of a better way. By the time we roll forward to 2007 I purchased the domain name Mopar1973Man.Com and purchase my first forum software of vBulletin 3.6. This allowed to communicate with people and keep hand building articles. As I was met with more and more issues I kept find other solutions in different softwares. 

 

Tidbit on the Mopar1973Man name My original nickname was Mopar Man but pretty popular nickname. So I opted to putting the year of my first car in the middle of Mopar Man so my first car was a 1973 Dodge Charger SE. 

 

Back to the story. The website continued to grow. 2015 I purchased Invision Power Board 3. By the time 2006 I had to move to Virtual Private Server. To this day Mopar1973Man.Com is privately owned and operated. By the time I purchase the Invision Power Board I continued till version 4 was released. This provided today functions like the store, article database, etc. This allows now the members to maintain there own articles and support others needing help. I've been told by many that this is the best resource of Cummins information in world. 

 

To this day I still service all make and models of vehicle but specialize in Dodge Cummins trucks.

I was born in Encino California, but never lived there, thank goodness!!  Raised in the greater Los Angeles area.

 

Acquired my 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 in November 2017.  It had not been loved when I got it.  But with no rust and just under 100k miles on it I figured I could bring it back up to snuff.

 

I drove it back to LA from Kingman AZ, blowing coal the entire way.  That's how it was named The Dragon! 

 

For the most part, the black smoke is minimal now.  I try to do as much of the work on it myself as I can.

Discovered this site several moths after the purchase and after doing extensive research on a source of information for my truck, I concluded that this is the most credible site for support and information for my truck.  Lucy find!!!

 

I live in the Santa Monica mountains at 2200ft above sea level.

 

This automotive equivalent of a wheel barrow (1991 Honda CIVIC VX) is my daily driver.  That being said, it's a blast to run around in the canyons around here.

One of my hobbies is to bruise the egos of people who come up here for a spirited drive, with their fast, fancy, expensive cars, and catch them in this little old bucket of bolts.  Not a fast car but it can out corner just about anything. 

 

It's not what you drive that matters it's how you drive it!
