Let everyone know a little about yourself

Hi, I'm Mike and I just bought a 64 Comet Caliente (everyone else: Hi Mike !)
It's a 2 dr HT originally painted yellow mist, and has a V8 w/ 4 barrel, although not sure if it's original. Does have 5 lug wheels. Doesn't matter if it's original as I have a 66 289 already built and sitting in my garage with a C4 attached. I already see a lot of challenges after I got it home and started taking apart things.(or trying to sometimes). I'm sure I'll be asking for help soon enough.

Yep ! It's a "K" car ! Pulled the oil filter and found chunks of metal. Glad I already have an engine to put in it.
