Hi Everyone, You probably don't remember me, but I introduced myself about 4 years ago when I was thinkin about buyin a car haha. Here's my intro thread: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/no-car-no-knowledge-no-experience.410303/ Not too much has changed. I've built a bunch of bikes since then and now, and still have ZERO experience with any type of car. Well, I recently sold a '76 shovel chop and I bought my very first car! Here's a pic of the Shovel I built and sold: And here's a picture of the car I bought with the money I got from the Shovel: The car is in pretty good condition as far as I can tell. Doesn't seem to be any rust spots where things are falling apart, but I won't really know until I start to tear into it. The plan is to channel it, no chop, maybe a small block chevy or 331 caddy motor, I got leads on both but no idea of the condition of either yet. I honestly don't even know where to start with all this yet, but I'm very excited. You can be sure I'll be doing a lot of homework on the forum and also asking a bunch of questions.
