    Hey guys, relocated from NJ about 1 year ago. Now in N. Raleigh Area. Would love to find out more about the scene here. Hard to find car stuff that isn't musclecars or geezers sitting around looking at each other. I have a 53 Chev that i just finished baggin with a custom susp. I am really interested in networking and hopefully getting my chop done. I'm good with the hands and willing, but don't have the experience for this (can't weld either). Like everyone else, I want to get the car right, but cant spend all my family's $$ on it. Any help (or even just "hello's") would be kool.

    My shop is right down by the Harley dealer. Had you posted a few days ago you could have made our open house on Sat. But welcome to Raleigh. Come by and say hi.

    I can't wait to leave Jersey! Too Crowded, too much Trafic, too high of property taxes

    I'm another NJ -> NC transplant (with a few stops between). Welcome to Raleigh. Zman and Switchblade327 can offer solid advice on your '53 and have the tools/knowledge and skills to tag-in on parts of the project you're not able to tackle at home.

    Other than the Vendettas Blood, Sweat, and Gears, The Hoopla, and Heavy Rebel Weekender (July 4th weekend in Winston/Salem), you're gonna have to road-trip to get to other shows.

    Welcome to Goofy-ville.
