    Greetings all. Recently picked up a project car and will be utilizing this site and many others to glean knowledge on what the heck I'm doing. Most likely will be a resto-mod but I will do my best to keep it stock looking on the exterior.

    This car is a project but I look forward to getting it on the road someday. Thanks for having me!-russ

    Looks like a fun project!
    Does it run? Then.... drive it! Only way to stay inspired on a project is to drive it now and then. If you make it a garage only project you will run out of steam very quickly.
    Just my two cents.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Nope, it doesn't run. I'll eventually put a 326 in from my 66 Tempest. My wife will make sure I don't run out of steam!

    Thanks guys. Cleaned up the inside of the car today. Just need to get the front seats out and I can really survey all of the interior issues.
