New guy,saying hello.

Hello,
I just bought a project car,and since I'll be searching this site,A LOT, I thought I'd say Hi.

1968 coupe. It was a driver but I've removed the 327 and aftermarket muncie install(M-20 I think) Original plan was install a nice suspension kit, 12 bolt or 9" rear, 383 and upgrade clutch, correct Hurst shifter, and clean up some small rusted areas wiring etc...
Now I see I'll need to replace all floor pans and most likely the trunk pan, and the butcher job on the trans tunnel.

I guess I'll be borrowing the MIG from work, and improving my basic mechanical skills.

Maybe I'll drive it, in a year or two.
Dang thing is already seriously cutting into My cigar,booze and gun hobby, but I guess I knew that would happen.

If a man says something in the garage - and his wife can't hear him - is he still wrong !!!

Several very active board members down that way.

And the thing is you really only have to learn one name with the 'Valley Boys' - "STEVE"

It's just easier here. The BOSS did her schoolin' at UK so there is some BIG BLUE bias here. She knows not to be too vocal about it though.
