Sounds like a plan.
Looking forward to the "after" pictures with some smiling faces.
My first time around was a '66 Coronete 500.
Running like crap.
Took it to a shop.
Still ran like crap.
Figured I could do no worse.
Found out the Library had books.
Bought a cheap set of tools and I was off and running.
Turned out to be bad points.
Once I got a replacement for it,
I tore it down to a bare body shell.
Still have some parts laying around.
That was like 1975.
Learned a lot of things not to do.
Neighborhood kids all helped each other out a lot in those days.
