Hi I'm new

Post by PappaD » Wed 31 May 2017, 21:02

Hi my name is Daniel. I live in Ladismith (little karoo) and sometimes in Pta for a month or two.
I have been building and restoring old cars since age 16 (now 50). I've build many, from austin, vw splitties to chevy's, Holdens and Valiants.
Some of my favourites I,ve build: 1960 Valiant, 1965 V200 Valiant, 1973 Ford Ranchero, 1967 Holden Special, 1970 Holden Premier(gave her a Monaro look on taillights, grill and clocks.)

I am currently building a 1974 Chevy C10 pick up. She is almost done and will be my daily driver on the Karoo roads running the standard chevy 4.1 motor, only fitted a 38 weber.

I've read some posts and love the forum. :D
If you see a white C10 with fat red wheels, stop me and lets talk cars :lol:

Welcome to the forum.

1960 Valiant is particularly rare, don't see many of that year around.
Alfa GTV 3.0
Ford Capri Perana V8
Chevy Lumina Supercharged

Wait not for tomorrow to do what can be done today, live each day for one knows not what the next day may hold.

Thanx, yes when I saw somebody advertising the 1960 valiant about 13 years ago, I thought they must be mistaken. I never knew we had any '60 valiants in SA untill I got this one 😃.
I sold her to a friend a few years back and have been trying for some time to buy her back, without success 😐
