Just got myself properly introduced in the new members check in forum so figured I would get this started here. I turn 40 this year and I've wanted an "old car" to play with since I was 16 (probably before then). The closest I came was a 65 chevy stepside at a time in my life I didn't have the time/money/space for a project so it didn't last long. I've been seriously browsing for a few months now and came across a project that a man was working on and his grandson inherited it before he finished. Went and looked at it a couple times, made a deal, and now I'm the proud new owner! It's a 48 4 door Stylemaster that has had LOTS of work finished and not much left to do. Things needing finished are: -oil pressure gauge and speedo aren't working -Exhaust needs to be ran from the mufflers back -Paint was never wet sanded after it was sprayed. -There are a couple runs and trash in the clear coat as well as a couple small spots that will need to be touched up -Interior needs to be done And that's about it. I couldn't be happier with it...I love the looks of the 2 door but the 4 door will be fantastic hauling the kids around. This will take a while to get everything finished for me since I'm working on a time and money budget but I really hope to have it finished this year. My goal is not to end up with a trailer queen show car even though I'd love to show up at some cruze ins with it but I want something I can hop in and drive a couple hundred miles for a weekend getaway and not worry about breaking down or keeping up with the freeway traffic. I think I'm well on my way for that. Now, since I forced you to read all that, on to the pictures.
