    Oh how I miss driving my old 1966 Chevy II SS up to Gatlinburg... *sigh*

    It had a Supercharged small block and 4:11 gears, if I still had it I'd have to get a bank loan for the fuel it would take to drive to the show. [​IMG]

    Here are a couple pics of my 1949 Plymouth Deluxe 4 door Sedan that I am restoring.

    It still has all original EVERYTHING, (and I do mean everything) as I found out when I put it in the shop to get the brakes redone. Except for the brake pads, it still had all the original factory parts! I am the third owner. It's had the plug wires and tires replaced, but that's about it. Even the paint is the original!

    The brake system had to be completely re-done and all the lines bent by hand. Now they are just going over it and checking the systems for stuff that needs replacing for safety before I can take her home. *I* am not a mechanic, and have no clue how to figure out *WHY* a car won't start or makes a funny noise etc., but if I know what the problem is, if it's not too complicated, I can work on it. So they are sending her home with a list of mechanical stuff that needs doing and what I can't handle, I'll bring her back in for. The cosmetic stuff I can handle.
    Funny, if it's got 4 legs, I can figure it out and fix it, but 4 wheels? FORGET IT!!

    I've got all the chrome pieces for the sides, they are just off right now.
