    We picked up a 1985 Sierra two weeks ago for my 13 year old daughter. Got some preliminary plans but nothing hard core. I've been doing quite a bit of reading here and one thing keeps coming up that I haven't been able to figure out. What is NOS?

    Thanks and I look forward to reading and posting a lot more!!

    Looks like a clean Sunbelt truck. She’s still got a few years, though. Of course, it’s never too early to learn, and if she hasn’t already, I think it’s a treat to learn in an older truck or car.

    Welcome to GMSB !!!

    Yep, what @Shorty81 said, as in New Old Stock like an orignal OEM part but has been sitting on the shelf for many years or a barn find. Unless of course you're talking about go fast juice as N20 aka Nitros Oxide and even better known as laughing gas but it'll damn sure make your ride go fast and even blow the bitch up if not installed and used properly.

    That oughta be a nice truck for her by the time she turns 15.5 or 16 ish. :waytogo:

    Sorry it took so long to reply, I wiped out my laptop by accident and did't have all my bookmarks backed up, finally find this place!

    Thanks for the welcomes and thank for the NOS explanation.
    The daughter is excited to help. She doesn't mind getting a little dirty.
