    I like the look of the site.

    A couple of pics to get started.

    Thanks,

    Bama,

    I made a detailed post moments ago. I got a message that it will have to be reviewed by the moderator. My original post to this site a week or so ago said the same thing and it never appeared. So, I have no idea if my detailed post today will show up. I assume it is in an inbox somewhere.

    Jim,.. ?? are you sure you made that post in this site? I've never seen such a message and don't think there are moderators here.. Maybe Sid will see and respond to your posting here...

    It was on this site. This is the 2nd time I have seen it. The first time I posted a week before I re-posted the message you commented on. It was a strange message. It basically said my post would have to be reviewed before posted. I wish I would have saved a copy of my post before I posted it, so, I could copy and paste. I will just post a shorten version of it. I can't remember half of what I typed.

    Anyways No problem.

    Jim

    Montgomery area... now called the River Region.

    Used to collect Mustangs but had to take care of some family members and sold everything and sized down.

    Always interested in Tri-Fives, just never thought I would own one.... but somewhere down the line I came to the conclusion life was to short and decided to scratch that itch.

    Not interested in working on them anymore at this time, so, decided to buy one ready to go.

    The corona virus slowed down my plans for a while but ended up meeting a father son build team. The father was building his personal 55 and I liked what I saw and decided to let them build me a 55 Bel Air 2-door post.

    The basics are: L83 engine and a 6L80E transmission with cruise control. 2 inch drop all the way around. Beefed up original suspension with rear drop leaf springs tucked into the frame. 'Their' special mod to the front suspension (not sure what all that entails). Power 4-wheel disc brakes. Power steering. Bucket seats with console. 18" wheels. Vintage Air.

    Thanks Bama, I think it looks nice too. Still a ways to go yet.

    Not sure what I can contribute to the site since I am not working on them anymore, but I will help where I can.

    Jim
