Hi everyone....just joined the site after acquiring a '67 impala as a project for my son and me. I've never done a restore job and I'm a newb mechanically so this should be interesting and fun. Looking forward to asking you guys tons of questions.

Welcome Tim. Restoring a car can be a fun father and son project. Just realize it takes quite some time and money to bring that old car back to its prime condition.

Welcome to the Team Tim!

Mechanical issues I can help you with, as I have rebuilt everything on car, truck or an agricultural tractor at one time or another. However, restoring a car of your vintage will require body working skills that I don't have: not the least of which is welding thin gage sheet metal while working in uncomfortable positions.

Welcome, Tim. You'll have a lot easier time finding parts now than 15 years ago when I got my 67. Wish you lots of fun bringing it to where you want it. If you need help finding anything or info there is a lot of good information here. I'd be glad to offer whatever tips I can.
