New Guy Introduction - Just bought 66 SS Conv.

My name is David an I just purchased a 66 SS convertable. Not a show car but in fair shape for its age. Still working on a game plan but it will be a driver for sure. Currently has a 400SB and turbo350 trans.
I plan it to be an on going project and for it to retain much of its original looks but contain modifacations that a hot rodder might have done living back in the 70's.

I'm joining this forum to learn from everyone else and maybe contribute something also.

Thanks,
David

Welcome to the Team David!

If it is any help I remember the Fifties, Sixties, Seventies, Disco, Vans, and computer controlled EFI replacing carbs. I also have every Hot Rod magazine published from 1958 to date as well as all of the Car Craft mags, Super Chevy, Chevy High Performance, Muscle Car, Cars High Performance, Popular Hot Rodding, etc. and a lot of the original manuals used by mechanics back from the sixties on when I had a garage to help offset my racing habit.
