New guy to the SoCal crew

What's up guys...I'm Mike. I bought "Floyd" when I was 16...I'm now 32. I just towed him on a dolly from NC where I was born to LA where I've lived for the last 7 years. He's a 68 302

I plan on adding power steering, converting front discs, and rebuilding the steering box in a few months. He's solid as is, but why not upgrade him...

Thanks gentlemen! Any great local shops for solid work? I'm going to undertake some stuff myself but have an insurance claim open with uhaul from when I dollied it out here. There's a little suspension noise when I turn the car right and I don't have lift to properly check out what's going on

Welcome man, care to describe the noise? Or maybe even start a thread on the open forum. I think you will find that this place is an absolutely astonishing wealth of information and insight.

Anyways, welcome again!

My Build thread:

1966 Fastback A-code - Finally Painted
2016 Shelby GT-350 Tech Pack Still like the 66 better
