Hello from Chevy owner

Hi, I live in northern California and own two, currently non-running vehicles begging for my attention. -One is a '57 Chevy 150 that I've owned since '79. It's maroon and white twp tone, stock interior, muncie 4sp and 8 3/4 mopar rear running 4:10. I built the current motor and though I haven't pulled it since the day it seized, I suspect a broken crank. This happened 16 years ago! Engine is a '70 454 with a roller cam (626 lift) crank ignition and old school Weiand dual quad.
Other car never ran... much. I bought a '66 Nova SS project and it barely got me home. all stock but the '74 350 engine. The black on black car is in pretty good shape, but suspension is completely shot. I have big plans for this one, but the '57 has priority. I'll be here looking for advice and motivation.

Welcome to the site Phil Barrows. You have come to the right place for info and opinions. Many 57 Chevy and Nova builders here. Check out the Project Journals and start one of your own. Good luck with those projects.

Hey Phil-
Welcome to the board. It's good to see another NorCal member joining up.
This place is a treasure trove of info- it's bailed me out a couple of times.

Definitely start a Project Journal-I plan on starting one once I start work on my '55 Chevy.
