    Hey, nice to see a fellow young Aussie! The Chevy looks like it's coming along nicely, and since it's a 6, you should be able to drive it on your P-Plates as well! I really have to wait 'til my opens, cause my '55 Ford is a V8.

    Same here except mine was a Pontiac and it was the same age as me (in 1968!).
    looking forward to the build. remember it is not just a car it is an educational adventure. How old do you need to be to drive?
     
  8. Congratulations,I am happy to see a young guy pickup up the hot rod torch like many of us did at a similar age.

    You have time on your side so enjoy the learning experience. HRP

    More doors are cool, it's easier to pack the 12 deep with all your girlfriends

    Nothing wrong with 4-doors, especially in a car like that! I've owned and loved plenty of 4-doors, and almost picked up another one last week.

    Cool. looks like you are keeping track of things as you take them apart. Don't be afraid to ask questions. We all enjoy watching the younger crowd getting involved with old cars.
