Hi from Germany

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!

Lu

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.

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?

I can use the filler plate from the Nova. I only had to modify the section below the headlights.

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!
