I’ve creeped around on the site for a long time but never had a reason to post. But I’ve finally got myself a project after looking and waiting for a very long time! I had been eyeing a 68 Coronet for a few months waiting until I had the funds to go get it and a few weeks ago while I was out of town I noticed that it had sold so I was pretty bummed out on missing it. When I got home my wife had gone and picked it up for me and surprised me with it! Needless to say I’m very excited to start working on it. This is my first pre-1980’s car and my first restoration. I’m going to try to do everything that I can by myself, aside from probably paint and some of the more precise engine work.

It came with a non matching 400 so I’m thinking about stroking that out. Also thinking about maybe turning it into a superbee. Either way it’ll be a while before i can make any progress since I’m going to Kuwait for the next year, but I’ll just come back from that with more money in the car fund.

anyways, thanks for reading my excited rant!

Welcome. One hell of a wife. You better do every item on that honey do list for her. My now ex never got the whole man and his car thing, so she left and I still have the cars. Lol.
