I'm glad you decided to join. Welcome aboard. I don't know if it is just me, but it seems like there has been more and more 62 and 63's starting to show up. That's great! If you get the chance load some pictures, I'm sure everyone would like to see your ride.

Looks great! :D only thing, it puzzles me how it has the same shaped paint chipped on both sides of lower fenders. :? But I'd say it is a few notches above a decent driver. :D

Those arent paint chips theyre rust holes :oops: luckily i have another set of fenders waiting to be reworked an mounted, which is a shame because the fenders on the car are neigh on perfect other than those rust holes
