Girlie Looking For A Goat...

Ever since I was a little girl I have been seriously in love with cars. My dad and what ever crew he could muster turned out numerous amazing projects including a couple vets, several Harleys, a Porsche and a black Chevelle that I wasn't allowed to sit on... Now I'm 29, a single mom... and I need a car. It really does make me happy to clean an engine...

How nuts is that? In high school when other girls were learning how to sew, I was in the machine shop... after I graduated in '93, I took up auto body for two years. It's difficult to get experience for a serious career when all they notice is your ***... I spent 8 years in a mini-truck club out of Chicago. We traveled all over together, I made some really excellent friends and had the time of my life...

Sooo, now I think I'm ready to start looking for my next project. My heart is with street rods and muscle cars. I'm kind of set on a 67' hardtop GTO, but I suppose it's healthy to be flexible.

Naa. That's what I want. Any advice as far as motors, gears, etc??

Best approach would be find a good rebuild-able core and go the restoration route. They didn't call them muscle cars for no reason and a top notch restoration would not only be more fun that one person should be allowed to have, value would be maintained.

Clone??

If you find a good 67 then build a clone.maybe not worth so much to the collector guys but then you can do what you want and have a great time..

Just my thought..

Don't get me wrong...

I'd have no problem with traveling for the right car. Rust is definately a factor... I don't think I'm going to have the resources to strip down to the frame, grind & do a full restoration... although that would really be the best route. For right now, I just want to find the car with as minimal frame damage as possible. Body work is all in the eye of the beholder... that's the best part. And boy I have some ideas ready.

Don't think so.

The whole idea is to put your heart into a restoration... that is if it's for you. And this one's gonna be for my daughter & I... and maybe the boyfriend if he takes his shoes off... LOL. Ok, he can sit in it as long as he's good for a waxing once in a while...
