Hey guys, the names Tony.

 

I just created an account about 1 week ago, and have just been combing the fourms soaking up as much info as possible.

I've recently decided to get back into the hobby. I'd say its been about 15 years since. Back in my teens living in Southern California I was more into the lowriders, and my cousin and I would spend countless hours in the garage modding lowered suspension, trying custon paint jobs/decals, and we would even have hopper contest.  I've obviously grown lot since then and have expanded my taste in autos since moving to the Midwest. Although I still enjoy the lowered look with white walls, I'm not so strict on wire wheels as much.

In the last 3 weeks I have completed a 66 Chevelle (was my rust remover back into the hobby so its not so great) but in the building process I was having all the memories and ideas coming back to me. I am currently working on a two-tone 56 Ford F-100, and Stacy David's 32 Rat Rod, And I have a 40 Ford Sedan Delivery on the way.

 

I hope to expand my skills and meet interesting hobbiest alike while I'm here, and I look forward to meeting new friends.
