    Hello everyone, Jeff here. I'm from Nothern Michigan. Like many of you I grew up with all the normall influences of hot cars and burning rubber! Like it was yesterday I can still recall my brothers friends brand new 64 GTO sitting in our driveway when I was 9 years old. And the shoe box Chevy's that were always at the neighbors house accross the street. Oddly, I find it difficult to remember birthdays' and anniversary's?

    Right now I have two 55 Chevys in my shop. One will be for the street and cruising and the other may be a race only gasser. I also have a 46 Chevy pickup "cab only" that will be low and chopped. Not sure what I'm doing with a 53 Ford pickup quite yet.

    As both of my daughters have relocated to Arizona recently, I am also considering relocation to Arizona. Probably near Temper, Gilbert or Chandler. It's a dry heat right guys? The toughest part is giving up a job (What??) and my pretty decent shop. (WTF??) But then again, I have grown to hate winters. We'll see.

    I have already benefited from the brain trust that is a part of this site and I only hope that I can also contribute positively in the near future. Thanks all!

    Welcome Jeff. I'm new here too. I'm down near Flint. I have a 55 Nomad gasser car. Couple of pics of it here on the site. I spent a little time in Phoenix, Glendale, and Sun-City AZ back in the late 70's. Winter there is a hell of a lot better than here!

    Welcome from mid-Michigan.

    Arizona?? Well, I guess there is something to be said about being to go outside and wash one of your rods in January in a pair of shorts. Good luck and Merry Christmas!
