Hey Pop, welcome to the forum! The only questions that are dumb are the ones you don't ask. Anyone who doesn't do this for a living has questions, and anyone who has done it once has answers, and are willing to help. Bill was being modest, he's a very knowledgeable resource here! I also have a 66 and will be glad to help you in any way I can.
Where are you from? I'm in PA, right smack it the middle of the 'rust belt'! Looking forward to seeing you get this project done.
Thanks for the welcome. I plan to upload a pic or two soon, and start asking those questions. I am currently "studying", trying to decide on which direction to go with upgrades. The car was originally built a small block, and has a 350 with Powerglide in it currently., in running condition. I plan to re-wire the car, and do upgrades to brakes, suspension, powertrain, and eventually paint and body. Advice based on everyone's experience with regard to these things would be huge for me. Thanks again all.
