Having done a frame off restomod on a 68 chevelle save the time, money,sweat,blood,headaches and buy one already done. It's gonna take longer than you think and it's gonna cost more than you thing GUARANTEED.

No, everything would be outsourced.

I love Chevelle but way to many on the streets, probably more SS now than ever made to be honest.

Agreed, theres plenty of good starter whips out there, that still need some help you can find for the low. Like i said FB groups (Chevys, G-Bodies, etc) you get em from part cars, rollers to show cars, depends on who's selling, not everything is turn key in groups thats for sure.
Id do a decent starter car, and upgrade as you go. At east you can enjoy the car while you keep working on it imo

Not trying to discourage you at all Ijust wanna make sure you know what your getting into. Alot of people dump tens of thousands and end up selling at some point ( @ a huge loss) before finishing because of life or lost of intrest. Get a platform you know your gonna want to keep because chances are if you ever sell it it's an L.

I know ... I eas willing to go up to 70k doing a frame off restore ... that be worst case ... seen a few for around 50 to 60k but not to my liking so I don't know.

Lets see.

What are you guys using to detail your cars with?
Just bought the MTM PF22.2 Foam Cannon with my HF Portland Electric pressure washer. The cannon is a game changer vs having had a cheap Amazon cannon. And I use Chemical Guys Honeydew Snow Foam. Used it in both and the foaming action is night and day between the MTM & a cheap alternative.

I then use a microfiber mitt to wash the car, using a double bucket to rinse the mitt. Then I rinse the car.

Once clean, I use an Absorber towel to dry the car (until I get a blow dry machine, which I will get eventually. Just figuring out which one). Once it's dry and I want to wax it, I used to use good old Meguiar's Gold Class liquid wax. But all of a sudden I can't find it. So I bought a bottle of Chemical Guys Butter Wet Wax. WOW!! car looked amazing when I was done. The pearl yellow color just had a shine to it! It looked amazing in the sun! See the pic below from a recent road rally we did. It just glistened the sun, and it was awesome. Totally sold on the wax.

And to keep it nice, I use either Adam's detail spray or Meguiar's ceramic detail spray. Both are really nice and do a great job. Did just get a free bottle of Gloss It as they were giving it away from a link on a VinWiki video. Stuff is very good. But the ceramic stuff is very nice (and I know it's not true ceramic. It does keep the shine up though). Love washing a car. Very therapeutic for me. 👍

Mainly through Instagram

There’s like a meet everyday here lol
Same. Instagram has been great for cars & coffee gatherings. Plus, in the Mid-Atlantic area there are a lot of gatherings. Plus having Fabspeed being about 30 minutes away also helps. Plus a McLaren dealer (Philadelphia) Ferrari dealer (Algar), a new Lamborghini dealer (Philadelphia) being built and the largest Porsche showroom in the US being built (Porsche Main Line) will also bring more exotics to our area. It's been a dream and a blast being around all these cars.

When I was a teen (late 80s to mid 90s) seeing a Ferrari or Lamborghini in my area was RARE! Like never. If I did, it was a 308 (which I love)or maybe a Testarossa. I even had my dad take me to Rothrock Lotus in Allentown in 1990 (where I got to see a Lotus Esprit up close. I LOVE Lotus cars) and in 1991 to Kerbeck to see a Lamborghini (Diablo in the parking lot). Now, it's second nature almost.

Just this week, on a Wednesday, on Rt 422 near Valley Forge, PA, passed a McLaren GT (not a fan of the GT) and a 458 Ferrari. Someone asked me recently, have I become jaded being around exotics so much (with my wife owning a Lamborghini)? NOT ONE BIT!! The smiles of people these cars bring out and how happy & excited people are when they see one in person and get up close (especially little kids) to them has been really really cool. I love just riding shotgun seeing all the reactions. It's a riot.
