Hello All, we just joined

We recently purchased a 1958 Flying Cloud project piece. Joining seemed like the next logical step. I hope I can get started soon on the repairs and get this baby on the road.

WELCOME Aboard, you're a brave person starting with a major refurb like a 50's unit - start thinking "what a long strange trip it's gonna be".

I hope you've been hanging out studying some old and some new threads on restoring so that you can do it well the first time and not have to go back and rip anything out to correct issues that you weren't experienced enough to know about up front.

Now- we want pictures - MANY of them and also, please update your profile with your location - at least the state - so that other restorers can share their experiences with you. You'll save a lot of blisters, frustration and money by sharing your story and asking for advice.

Just whatever you do, don't ask for what the best tow vehicle is - 50 people will have 75 opinions!

Hope to see you down the road, Paula

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.
