Greetings

Hey there, I'm Jake. New to this site, thought I would introduce myself. Building up a 67 Impala 4dr I've had since I was a kid. Am planning on doing up a build thread, for those interested. Cammed out 383, custom built 700r4, 3.73:1 locked rear end, tubular control arms, four corner disk brakes; 4 piston front and two piston rear, etc etc. Technology and I don't see eye to eye, so have patience with me and this internet thing.

Take care

I'm in the same boat. I was just telling my son yesterday, that I relay dont want the modern electronics and tec on my old cars. They were made simple and easy to work on. I enjoy that.
Welcome Jake!

Welcome to the Team Jake!

If you have questions posting photos I wrote a sticky (a post that is stuck at the top of the list of posts) detailing the procedure. To be truthful I didn't write it a mod on the Team Nova board wrote it and I reposted it here.

I recommend buying a digital camera as opposed to a pad or I-Phone. This is because they have a built in flash usually; and can take a close up photo. When set on close up you can focus down to four inches with a high end camera, though easily as close as a foot for a Sony Cybershot DSC P73 hand held that you can buy new for $180 or used for $17 (I bought one that worked fine for $15 but ended up paying $24 in S&H, so read the fine print on the shipping charges).

I have used the Sony CyberShot for decades. I went through three of them as they are small enough to fall out of your pocket, once while walking along the edge of the Columbia river (don't know if it ever hit bottom before being carried to the Pacific as the current was awesome).
