New kid!

Post by Dragonkarr » Wed 28 Dec 2011, 13:36

Hello

Well, actually that's all I want to say. But while I'm at it; I grew up with the smells and sounds of my dad's V8 El Camino, and am currently on the prowl, looking for a similar model that I can restore and, 'improve'. No excessive wings and crap, just enough paint and power to frighten old ladies and terrify children :mrgreen:

Looking forward to an educational (fun) time on African Muscle Cars!

Thanks for the welcomes :D Shoebox, where do you live then? Oh that black rubbery stuff's actually just a clear matte topcoat, I'd probably stick to mainly oil slick black, nice 'n' shiny is the way to go. I just find it a little hard to get hold of a V8 model, and if I do, someone's already added a gazillion rands worth to it :cry:
