Another Newbee

I'd like to say Hi to everyone, been lurking for a couple of weeks now.
And I like the format and friendly forum.

Live in Amarillo TX.
Hobbies are wrenching and wenching. (not sure in which order I get to do those two)
First project was a '49 Ford Pick Up, of course that was over 33 years ago.
Then went through a VW phase.
Submarines for the next 22 years, mixed in with some street rod and four wheel stuff.
Since getting out in '92, I kinda drifted, More fourwheel drive stuff, a couple of tractors, Case, Masey, some "hit and miss" gas powered washing machines.

I picked up motorcycling in 2000, and my current bike is a '78 Yamaha XS1100, not old for a car, but it is for a daily ride bike. Just finished a 3400 mile trip on it that included Sturgis, Yellowstone, Canada, Rocky Mountian National Park, and the Grand Canyon.

Now it's time to start my current project.
It's a '50 Nash Statesman (or a black bathtub, you're choice). I'm the second owner, bought it in March from an elderly gentleman in Kansas, and drove it to Amarillo. I think I'd like to turn it into a bit of a street cruiser/ daily driver. Keep the outside and interior as stock as possible, but put in a 'current' drive train, for now.

Anyway, this is a bit windy (blame it on Amarillo) for a Howdy. Hope to use your expertise on putting my ride together. I'm sure I'll have some parts to pass on to those "Nash-Kelvinator" fans.
