    Hello All,

    I finally got tired of that "members only" messages when trying to find out more about your projects. So here's my first post after a couple years of just watching over the fence.

    I'm from the land of Tequila and Mariachi and got infected by the car bug very early in my life: I started working as a 10 year old helper at a local car workshop just because I wanted to see how they fixed cars.

    Even though I've had a couple of project cars (I did my first top chop to a 1970 Dodge Dart :eek:), I just bought my first pre-60's car a couple of years ago.

    It's a 1950 Chevy Styleline Deluxe 4dr, everything stock including the 6 volt electrical system. I got it from a guy that bought it in 1966,and with the exception of the fenders trim, everything is there.

    It started as a frame-off restoration in Mexico City but I had to move to Guadalajara due to work, so I just re-assemble it as fast as I could and have it delivered to it's new home where it's waiting for the work to re-start.

    Below is how it was when I bought it 3 years ago.

  3. Lamego, bienvenido from Missouri. The Styleline Delux is sweet and I hope to add one to my collection someday! Keep us posted on the progress you make.
