    Hello all. I have been referencing the site for a long time now and I felt I should join the discussion. I am located in central Iowa and I have a couple cars. One is a 51 Fleetline Special that I ran across 6 years ago by chance and have been working on it ever since. The other, I recently purchased, is a 56 Chevy 150 2 door that is styled like a gasser. I love the look of it and I wanted something a little meaner (the fleetline is still stock drivetrain). Gramps had a green 210 in 59 and too many things about the car were telling me to buy it. Anyhow, I look forward to future shenanigans! ! Take it easy on the new guy.

    P.S. I would like to meet some people in person at torque fest in a month. Winter needs to die already!!!

    Thanks for the welcome everyone. I am planning to show up at VTF on Thursday night. We are camping all weekend. I'm driving the 51 and my dad is pulling the camper.

    Also, here is a pic of the 56. I saw it at VTF last year and thought it kicked ass. I bought it from a great dude named Gene after seeing it on craigslist this winter. Not sure if he is on here at all, but he is a REAL car guy and super nice.

    Porky was a cool place to hang out. Too bad it was torn down. It was mostly before my time, but I remember always looking for cool cars in the lot when I drove past with my folks. I only went as an adult a couple times before it was gone.

    Thanks. We saw it at Torque fest last year and I thought it looked really familiar when I saw it on CL. I even had my step son stand in front of it for a picture at the show. Very happy to have found it.
