Hey everyone I have bean lurking around here for a while,and decided I should join. A little about me; My name is Cord,I'm 19 and I live in Arkansas near Ft. Smith.
I have been into cars for as long as I can remember and have no predigest against any car s long as it's cool,fast,or has noticeable hard work in it.
I am married with a 8 month old son who is already getting a crash course in the auto world.We will all be moving to Laramie Wyoming in about a month so i can attend Wyotech for a cert in automotive upholstery.I have owned a "few" old cars,but none mean as much to me as my Grampa's 50' ford 2-door Custom that he has given to me. So now that ya'll know a little about me let my endless questions,and my constant search for more knowledge begin !

Hey Cole,and wretched ratchet would you believe that Ford is from Texas ?
Sure is,Panhandle to be exact (near Borger-Pampa-Amarillo) Thats where we all came from when we moved to Arkansas.81meano rite now i do a little side work for the local auto restorer/hot rod builder,and he said he wished i would go learn upholstery since there is nobody around here that does it.So i decided that i liked upholstery,or at least what little i had done for myself and that i enjoyed watching stuff go from a pile of foam, material,and machine turn into a master piece. Oh,and NEWINTERIORS thanx and I hope to learn from everyone on here.
Are there alot of people here in the trade ?
