I am one of the new guys and I live in Pelahatchie, Mississippi.  I have built models or fooled with something with my hands every since age 12.  I am 74 now, and probably winding down my building career, so I will mostly be a looker. Building skills and eye sight are going away.

 

Mostly I am interested in short track oval cars, street rods, and some mild, daily driver type customs.

 

Thanks for letting me look and enjoy what you guys do.  Some really great builders here.  :)

Thanks to all.  " Genuine Junk Yard Parts "  I love that.

 

I still have my # 3 decals that you made for me, Jim.  I will use them eventually.  Takes a white surface, and that has slowed me down.  But I still appreciate them and your kindness.
