I've been a lurker for a long time -- mostly surfing the classifieds. I've finally pulled the trigger on a project, so I figured I would jump into the fray. I'm starting with an abandoned Brookville 30/31 roadster project. I pick it up over the holidays, and I CAN HARDLY CONTAIN MYSELF!!! I haven't been this excited about Xmas since I was a kid! The body is already channeled. I think I will keep it that way, although I'm not sure I would have made that choice if I were starting with a blank slate. I already have a sbc and T5 I plan to drop in. It will not be a high dollar build, so I'm planning to use what I already have to the extent I can do so. I'm thinking of going for a late 50s - early 60s Jersey Shore/East Coast vibe (minus the cycle fenders)- channeled, white walls & smoothies. I'm thinking I will dress up the sbc to look like a late 50s vette motor. I will post pics when I pick it up. Stay tuned!
