Hello all, I'm Christine from the Hudson Valley area, of New York.
As of yesterday I've taken possession of my father's 1967 Barracuda. (He passed away in November). I will be the first to admit I know zero about cars. Now I have this amazing vehicle, that needs a little love and I am overwhelmed as to a starting point. I received the car yesterday, and I already have two puddles. Something is leaking. The mechanic that' has worked on this car told me, "its old, it leaks, check the fluids often" - but I don't like that answer, not after $17,000 of restoration work. I'll be reading all I can, and will try to learn as much as possible... so please be patient with me.
As of right now, I'm just trying to identify the two leaky spots and find a mechanic in my area that is GOOD, and won't rip me off... So basically the cliff notes are hello, and help. Haha.
