Greetings to everyone here at DC.
I realized at nearly 2 dozen posts I have never introduced myself - Here
It was that "other" sight. OOPS! Thought I would just do it here in C3
since I spend 99% of my time here.
Looks to be a pretty good group of folks here and I like what I have seen so far.
I've been a Vette freak since I was a kid, but never owned one till now.
Have owned more Chevy pickups then I can count and one '73 Z-28
all the other autos aren't worth mention.
Started doing Paint & Body work in High School. Could not afford my own
ride so I helped fixed up everyone else's. Have been in this line of work
ever since. I know a little about everything and a whole lot about nothing.
I don't consider myself "The Expert" but hope I can contribute some sound
advice to the forum. I have learned a lot of neat little things since I've
been visiting the forums and even cleared up a few misconceptions I've had.
(As much as I hate to admit that. :huh: )
A father of 5, I stay busy enough. My oldest will be driving in a year and a
half. But she has her eye on my '78 4x4 that we need to finish a resto on
before we get to involved in the Vette. My middle son who's 9 has his own
speed boat, '75 Del-Magic that is almost ready for paint.
They are all wonderful kids and enjoy helping Dad work on the vehicles.
It's been 15+ years since the last Vette that I have done any serious work
on. The last several years have been spent repairing BMW and Porsche :surprised .
Now I work at a shop where we work on any and everything, but their a great
group of guys and that's what matters. :thumbsup:
Bought MY first Vette last month, an '81. Was kind of a spur-of-the-moment kind
of a thing. Figured I best stop talking about it and just do it. So I bought
a "project vehicle". Would have been totally out of character not to.
My avatar is NOT the actual car but is a exact rendering of what it's suppose
to look like.
I really favor the resto-mods and race cars, never been real big on the
factory spec stuff.........there nice, But....just not me!
Anyhow I'm starting to ramble so I'll shut-up.
Happy to be here and hope to get to know everyone. :cheers:
