    Your welding looks good to me. I hope that when I start my welding it looks as good as that.

    Good job man, looking good

    I'm just down the road from you in Kenosha, Wi and this year has been brutal. How far have you gotten on your car? I've got a 50 Styleline I'm working on.

    I know what you mean, you need time, money and space, but never seem to have them all at the same time.

    Here's an update i sold the ls engine and decided to build a nice lil small block Chevy. Keeping it simple i plan on a static drop with 3"whitewalls keeping it old school :)

    There you go, keep it simple. That's what I'm doing. Putting in a 283 with a four speed, cutting the coils up front, getting some blocks for the back and probably some discs for the front. Simple and still period. Good luck.
