    Hello all. I am new to this forum obviously and new to the hotrod community. I have been around old cars and hotrods most of my life because of family, but now I have my first car! I just recenly purchased a 1948 Plymouth Special Deluxe 2Dr Sedan. Everything is original except for the paint and wheels. It runs and drives great! But of course has its down falls for being 63 years old.

    The first pic is how I drove her home.
    The second is one I took off a website from a local car show (The DuckTail Run).

    Well, I am torn, between making it mine or roding it out a bit. I know I am going to update the suspension a bit and lower it. I dont want to get into chopping it. This is my first car, so kinda still learning things.

    Welcome from Oklahoma! I have a 48 dodge business coupe. Its lowered a little in the front with smoothies all the way around, other than that it's stock. There are a lot of folks on here tat can give you access to a lot of cool performance parts for that old flathead six, all you have to do is ask, and you will have a heck of a head-turner!
