New guy in Fl.

Hello, got a 70 El Camino that Iím starting a slow restoration on. Inherited from my grandfather in 2005, bought new in 1970. Sat in storage for a long time while I was in the Navy. Stopped drag racing mustangs to concentrate on this. Car is getting a turbo 6.0/4l80e with modern suspension and brakes, itís an original a/c car so hopefully will be able to get all that working also. Going to be a fun driver that Iíll pass down to my daughter when sheís old enough.

Welcome Tim, to Team Chevelle.....

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

I don't like that it isn't just the Lake Mirror Classic anymore. Stranger yet, I had to make some changes to my Insurance and Heacock Insurance was sold and is now in Cherry Hill NJ
