New guy in Florida

Hi everyone. I have been without a Chevelle since my 71 was stollen a few years ago, I think 2005. I really loved that car.

A few months ago I decided it was time for another car. I have probably driven 1500 miles looking at one bondo bucket after another, why do they always look better in pictures? There are so many guys in Florida trying to make a buck on classic cars that to find a decent car at a decent price I had to travel out of state.

Well yesterday I found my car!! Ive attached pics of my new 68.

Re: New guy in Florida

Welcome! Looks like a sweet 68 you got there, is it a 138 car? Btw, that's a really nice super duty you have in your driveway.
