Hey everybody, been following the site for awhile, just reently found the forums, and thought I'd do the formal intro thing. My names Eric, and I've got two projects I'm working on simultaneously. First off is my first car, a 1972 Chevelle. I bought it when I was 19, and have held onto it ever since, now its dis-assembled for the full on frame off resto. It was born a blah covert tan Malibu, altough it IS all original with full docs. But will be re-born as a much cooler Heavy Chevy. Hope to find a big block along the way, but time will tell.
My other money pit is actually my wifes favorite, a 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL, 289. I got it super cheap, and the plan was/is to get it running to have a cruiser until the Chevelle is done, then frame off for it. That is, until I discovered the 1/2 inch of sludge in the lifter valley, and chewed up main bearings. After a trip to the machine shop for a quick grind, I'm nearing the rebuilding stage. Hopefully it'll move under its own power this summer/fall....fingers crossed.
