Really old timer

I'm 76 years old figured it's Time to roll the odometer on the porch rocking chair. Repainted my 37 Olds last year and after getting several compliments figured it's not really over yet. Went to the house garage and dug out my 68 convertible I bought in 85 for my next project. Never drove it or heard it run. Don't live too far from NPD in Ocala FL, with a magnifying glass in the welding helmet and some help from you guys let the fun begin! Bob Tyburski Hudson FL

Nice! I used to live right down the street from you in Port Richey with my folks for a while back in the early 90s. Great place for cruising the classics. My father (same age as you) used to bring his black 79 Z28 with an LS6 in it to the shows. They're still down there. I wish he were as spry as you. He'd love to be able to work on cars again.
Good luck with the project.

It's good to see this after a day of being the old guy at work and realizing I am the kid here.
