    50 year old that knows very little about auto mechanics, from Glenwood Iowa.

    Hope there is room here for a non 'hot rodder'? I bought a 1949 Studebaker pickup to see if I could restore it. I am bout as ignorant as they come when it comes to mechanics - especially electrical :eek:

    So, I bought this truck to restore and to learn about all the things I have always wanted to know. IF I can get this old truck on the road I would like my next project to be a 71-72 Comet.
