    New guy, jumping ship from trifive.com

    How is everyone doing? I got fed up with the new layout at TriFive.com so I registered here to give it a go.
    I have been working from home since March 13th with no sign of going back to normal anytime soon. Doesn't matter, saves me about 400 bucks a month on gas and two hours a day of travel time.
    I have a '56 two door wagon I have been rebuilding since August of last year. I have a huge thread on the other site I wish I could steal and post here. Here's a link to all 12 pages:
    https://www.trifive.com/threads/hit-.../#post-2274238
    I have a few other cars as well. A custom '95 GMC pick up, a '94 Astro Van with an LT1 350 in it, a '94 Formula, a '95 T/A Convertible, the twins, and the other project, an '88 Astro Van I have built an entire chassis and front and rear suspensions for. That one is a book as well on the Pro-Touring site.
    I love my wife of almost 43 years. She puts up with my hobbies and I put up with hers.
    Anyway, glad to be here and we'll see how it goes.

    Welcome to TriFiveChevys Mark!~

    You might try posting the LINK to your photos here? And if you work at it a bit, you'll figure out it's pretty easy to post photos here also...

    Thank You Sir. I added the link in my 1st post. I'll get around to starting a Project Thread and get caught up on the work. It has been going pretty slow though. To damn hot the last couple of weeks to do to much...

    Welcome to the forum astroracer, I left the dark side and am glad I migrated here. That forum really sucks now. I found creating an album in your profile wasn't all that difficult here...trial and error, some intuitive thought. The software is easy to play with.

    BTW, I am a big fan of Astro vans....rear wheel drive, big 4.3 V6 made from the 350 by removing two center cylinder bores. GM evidently discontinued it because of the new safety regulations.

    I did a lot of design work in the early eighties when they were introduced. I designed all of the inner workings for the instrument cluster and a did a lot work on the fuel tanks. I have always had 1 or 2 or 3 Astro's in my fleet since they 1st came out'
    Here is my '94 AWD with 43K on it. LT1 350 out of a Trans Am, built by Callaway from what I was told. The engine was swapped in when the van was brand new and had 50 miles on it.
