Afternoon Car Lovers

Sent here by Rassie Erasmus from Toti. You wouldn't believe it but I do not even own a car, busy with my first restoration, Chev Firenza Can Am. It's the four door model, and luckily got the body for a steal.

Well I hope to integrate in to the community and have some fun posting.

Regards

Welcome.

Good luck with the resto project, once it is finished you will have many epic roads to drive on.

Thanx :)

Yeah, Sabie Road is a lovely road to drive on, fast straights and downhills and tight corners.

Welcome to the forum, sounds like an interesting project. Four door Can Am?
Look forward to following this one.
I have spent many weekends in your end of the country on my bikes, camping at Sabie or Graskop. Great roads, scenery and pancakes! :D

Cheers

@ Burnthosetyres:

Thank you very much.

@ paulusvrotius1:

Well, I am hoping to drive the car up and down the sabie road over the weekend with the car, putting in the gearbox & engine on Friday. Maybe I'll even get a pancake as a reward for my efforts :P

@ 72XYGT:

Thank you oom Daan :)
