    Hello guys,

    I'd like to do a short introduction to myself and my car.
    My name is Stefan, I am 31 years old, I am from Austria in Europe, working as a design engineer and I like working on cars since I am 16 years old.
    First I started with European Cars, but switched to US cars in 2014.

    My latest project is a 1954 Chevy 210 club coupe i built the last two years. Nearly all of the work went into the drivetrain and the chassis to make it frame laying, the body remained almost untouched. Only a few custom accesories were added.

    If you want something else to know from me, don't hesitate to ask me.
    Hope to have a good time here, reading interesting posts and maybee can help out also some times.

    Regards from Austria
    Stefan

    Holy Crap Stefan! That Ride is Sweeet!
    Let's see some Interior Shots.
    What's in the Suitcase in the Trunk? Strudel?

    Hey,
    thank you.

    @FrankenRodz: The suitecase is hiding the valves, the wiring harness and a 12V batterie for the airride system because the car is still running on 6V. I do not have good interior pics, just can post two detail shots. But it is almost stock interior in good used condition. Fitting to the rest of the car. Only the front seat is torn so I added a mexican blanket.

  15. Hey Stefan, greetings from the other Austria! Nice car, and the suitcase idea is nifty!
    Good to see the inliner 6 in it's proper place, too! I have the same valve cover, with the "Chevrolet" script, but I couldn't find what model it originally came from- any ideas?

    Hey guys,
    thank you for the warm welcome.

    @Surfcityrocker: Servus Lukas. Yeah, was a cool meeting and a nice conversation up there in Eberschwang. Hope we are meeting up on several events next year.

    @deadbeat and 36roadster: Yeah, Austria, no kangaroos, only mountains and cows ... But it happens some time that ordered parts form the USA take their way over Australia to Austria, once around the world :D

    @36roadster: honestly I don't know, maybee it depends on the date of built or the type of engine?

    I like the way the added gauge/switch panel under the dash matches the speedometer cluster with the rounded ends.

    Stefan, I just love the simplicity of your Chev. It makes me pine for the one I had back in high school. Man, that was a long time ago. Welcome to the HAMB.
