Default I'm new here

New (old) guy to the site.. I'm real elderly, just turned 76.. Been married to the same woman for almost 53 years.. Before I retired, I worked as an ASE certified automobile mechanic for over 30 years having started my first professional "car job" in the '60s I've seen a lot, and have done a lot, but certainly don't know everything..

I've worked on everything from Cushman scooters to a DeLorean.. Even had my hands of some Barris custom cars. I drove stock cars for a few years back in the '60s - '80s.. I've built lots of race engines and chassis.. My current projects are an off topic Chevy truck and a more acceptable to this site 1966 step side F-100 w/240 I6 and TTOT.. Current medical issues prevent me from getting much time in the shop, but the F-100 is destined to be a much modified driver..

I'm not much of a poster, but I'm looking forward to time well spent here..

Central Florida welcomes you to the club. Do you have any children or grandchildren that can help you while you're battling your heath issues?

Both my son and son-in-law are accomplished mechanics.. My son worked as my helper for some 10 years.. He's now a supervisor in the petrochemical industry.. My son-in-law has about 20 years experience in the automobile field.. He's now a marine mechanic at a large boat dealership.. The problem is both men live about 175 miles away from me.. Same goes for my 2 grandsons.. Youngest is 21, oldest just turned 24.. Both work in the petrochemical industry..

Gotcha. Well, best of luck to you with your health. Would love to see some pics of the F100 as it progresses.
