Hi,my name is Jim
and I just joined this group as I am buying a 63 Biscayne. It is a project car that someone was starting to go through and then lost heart with it when some kids busted the windows out of it.
My everyday job is being an automotive tech. I work for an automotive wholesaler and we go through 1500 vehicles a year. I am the manager of the shop and i have 4 guys working with me. I also own a shop in Jackson and have 3 guys over there. My stepson runs it for me while I am here.
I have several projects going at the same time. i love old cars and trucks. I found this Biscayne the other day when a guy who was working on the sewer line at the shop mentioned he had a few cars sitting around. I am a sucker when it comes to hearing about old cars and trucks and would like to save them all. Anyway,he was talking about scrapping these cars. I told him not to do that and I would take them. There is the Biscayne,69 Road Runner,54 Chevy panel that he thinks was a hearse and a couple of Hudson Hornets. I can not keep them all but will find someone who will take them and put them back together. The Biscayne on the other hand is all me. I am not sure yet which engine I will use as i have a 327 and a 454 that I could use.
I will be looking forward to getting into this car and I will be reading through alot of threads on here as well. Not to mention I will need parts. I am a working man and thus,have a working man's budget (read-nonexistent) so i am always looking for a great deal,whether it is cash or trading,ect
Thank you in advance Jim
