Hey yall, decided to go ahead and register cuz I’ll probably be needing to ask all kinds of dumb questions soon. I’m 25, from west DFW. Antique collector & restorer. Classic cars have always had my attention and I have wanted to get into the hobby for years but never could afford it. I still can’t but tomorrow I’m buying a flathead V8 and diving in headfirst. Never worked on anything this old but I’ve been elbow deep in classic cars here and there... planning to learn as I go by getting the motor running on a stand and building the rest of the car around it. The motor I’m looking at is a truck engine that was pulled from a truck that was being restomodded. It was running when pulled but has sat for 10 years. Still turns over freely. I really like the old school rod styling. My destination is a “traditional” rod, unchanneled, on leaf springs and original axles, but we’ll see what I can afford moving forward. Glad to be here! If anyone in the area wants to come wrench and drink beer I’ll provide the beer. I’ll need all the help I can get.
