Greetings from sunny Florida!
Hi there, I'm Bud Lindsay. I'm retired from a wide and varied working life that runs from southern California oil fields to nationwide trucking to dealer mechanic to real estate. I live in north central Florida, Ocala/Gainesville area. I'm working on an all black 1949 Dodge Meadowbrook four door sedan that we call Miss Elizabeth. We bought and drove her as a survivor for about a year before our move from Key Largo. I drove her the 400 miles but shortly thereafter decided to restore her cosmetically and update the mechanicals. At present I'm rebuilding a 318 and the car is stripped completely down to the bare frame but carefully documented in notebooks and each part (as carefully preserved as possible) is in a numbered bag which in turn is in a numbered box. All carefully stored away in the back of my barn. The fenders/doors/seats and trunk lid are carefully stacked (off the floor) in that area. The frame and body are on home made dollys (4X4 and 2X6 wood with Harbour Freight casters). I have a pretty severe heart condition so I don't work fast but I've done all of the disassembly by myself. I'm really pretty lost with anything built after about 1975 but I've gained a lot of experience with the old stuff. I've got some books and belong to various clubs, etc. and if I can help any of you, just e-mail me. And while I'm here, let me say that this is the most impressive hot rod devoted web site I've ever seen. Thanks Jon, It's awesome! Bud
