Hello from Minnesota

Hello everyone, just signed up today after viewing some great topics and replies from members. I am a previous shop owner (15 years) and now do other things but still have a home shop with the toys of course. Just finishing up a 68 ragtop (15 years in the making) and hope to get some ideas and share some as well - Currently have the 68 and a 56 Chevy. See you around the forums...

Re: Hello from Minnesota

Welcome, are you in the twin cities area? we live in River Falls WI near the border with MN, so we drive our camaro into st paul for saturday night cruising or events as much as possible in warm weather. I'd like to see a pic of your convertible!

Re: Hello from Minnesota

Thanks! Been lots of work as you all know but well worth it in the end. I bought the car around 95 in boxes and tore all done as someone else attempted the rebuild and got over their heads (common problem I think). I was thinking I would finish the car in the next couple years but after looking around the forum here and seeing some of your rides I may just have to move that deadline up, to lets say.... next 2 months
I uploaded a few more photos last night I found on my computer here to show some interior and under car etc... http://www.derrickmonroe.com/blog/mo...pictures/show/
