new kid on the engine block!

hello ladies and gents,
just wanted to introduce myself, my name is justin graham, from Keizer Oregon and i'm a proud new owner of a 56 chevy belair. i'm only 22 and probably shouldn't have bought my dream car just yet, but i did it anyways. i'm a total amature when it comes to machanics, but a willing to learn blue collar kid who loves hot rods and old harleys. so with a few questions and a couple of helping hands i'm sure i will take on to this awesome hobby just fine.

thanks for having me on
Justin Graham

Welcome fellow 56 owner

Welcome to the ownership of a '56 Chevy. I have had a '56 210 Handyman wagon since 1964. It was my first car. I am now 57 years old and still playing with it. I went on my first date, first prom, first honeymoon (there have been three), used it as a daily driver, parked it when I went to Vietnam, resurrected it as a daily driver, tore it apart, put it back together, taught my kids how to drive in it and am just finishing a frame of rebuild. It now has a ZZ4 motor with "hot cam" kit, 700R4 trans, power steering, disc brakes on all 4 wheels, dropped spindles, leather interior and 9" rear end from Strange. I am just starting to rewire the thing.
Good luck with your new toy. Just enjoy it and remember that you are driving on and working on a car that is 50 years old. Take your time and don't get too crazy. Blown big blocks look neat but don't work on the street despite what the magazines tell you. I could go on forever about the parts and pieces I have bought tried and discarded in favor of what works. Small block and automatic transmission.
Take care.
