New member from Vancouver BC
« on: October 22, 2013 - 11:45:30 pm »
Hi, thanks to everyone involved in maintaining this great site.  I've visited a few times and found plenty of great information! I've finally gotten around to signing up.  I've started down the path of restoring my 1970 Barracuda 318-4Speed. I've owned the car for 20 years; it was my daily driver for many of those years. It suffers classic west coast rust - floors, trunk, quarters... Sometimes I wonder what I've signed up for  :).  I'm part way through the dis-assembly, hoping to get the car media blasted and the sheet metal replacement process started by the end of the year.  I have 2 other Plymouths - a 66 Barracuda which has been in the family since it was new (my parents bought in 66) and a Canadian 65 Valiant Signet (looks like a US 65 Dart GT) - this will be restoration project #2 (assuming I survive project #1 :) ).

Thanks in advance for all the great advice I know I'll receive!
Eric.

"usraptr" = United States raptor - bird of prey = United States Bald Eagle.  FYI, somebody else thought of it first so I had to drop the "O" in raptor.

 :clapping:  Welcome!!!!   :wave:
The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.

The picture of the 70 was taken a few months ago - it is significantly more disassembled now (just the headliner, passenger side glass and dash to remove)!
