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

Welcome Bud. Would life to see a journal and some pictures of your hog as you get her back together. As far as sharing your lifetime of knowledge, don't wait for emails, just jump right into the forums and answer questions on line. That way we all benefit.
