    Hello all!

    My name is Ben, I am a student at McPherson College. I am from Greeley, Colorado, where I grew up surrounded by hot rods and muscle cars through my dad and his friends. I had built many little projects before moving to Kansas for college including bar stool racers, many motorcyles, a racing lawn tractor and drift trikes. My big project growing up was my 1967 Firebird which is pictured below.

    I just recently picked up a new project to hopefully have done by my senior year in the restoration program at McPherson. I have a 1929 Ford Model A Tudor that I have chopped 3 1/2 inches out of and now am working on turning the back panel into a hatch for uniqueness and good metalworking practice. All I have for the car is the body and the frame, so I am in search of a chassis if you know of one hanging around. I hope to build a reversed cam and OHV 4-banger for a drivetrain, but keep the outside looking era-correct....to an extent. I'll post a build thread eventually once I get a chassis to actually get this project rolling, no pun intended.

    Excited to be part of the HAMB!

    Welcome! I have a home in Herington KS. It's not too far from you. I hope that you keep the hobby alive. We really need young guns like yourself...

    welcome aboard ...
     
  8. Welcome to the site, the cars look good, the firebird is considered off topic and I would suggest not posting photo's of it on the main broad least the moderators may delete the thread. HRP
