Welcome to the forum. I was born on Long Island, but got drafted in 1965 and never went back. Post some pictures of your new ride. Plenty of smart and helpful people here to help you (I'm not 1 of them)
Looks like you have a great place to start. The car looks nice and clean to me, good luck on your project. Will it be a daily driver for you?I haven't taken any new pics, these are from when I was looking to buy it, I'll be sure to post some new one as soon as I take them!
