Hi all! My name is Lu and i'm a new member from Germany. I'm a lurker for some time now and decided to register. A buddy and i have a small shop over here and restore classic cars. My personal car is a 1971 Nova i got from Oklahoma. I bought this one from craigslist without seeing it in person. The seller is a honest guy and i was very comfortable with what i got. Here is a pic of my car still in Ok.
After shipping to Germany i started work but due to other projects in the shop the progress is not very good....
Here is where i'm now...
Maybe i start some kind of project thread and hope to get some heavily needed support!
Thanks! Lot's of body mods on this one. I do original builds every day so this time i wanted to go full custom ( at least what it is called here in Germany) to show what can be done to an old car to get it competitive in a world with anti lock braking systems, modern suspensions and so on.
to SNS, lurkergood luck on your custom project. whats that valance off of?
Started with a Camaro bumper valance and fender extensions. Bumper openings welded shut and turn signals came in. Used a bumper from an old Opel, cut into segments to get the desired shape. Over here you have to use what you have. but that's what ya call hotroddin, or?
Thanks all for this warm welcome!
I know that's not common on some forums....but i got the advice to join here from an Canadian member and he was right. I like to have some car maniacs without prejudices to ask when i'm in need for help... We all share a hobby which gives us probs with our wifes, family, with our boss just for the moment when we hit the pedal and get the feeling!
