A big welcome to the site, there, Birdleg! Isn't it nice to have an aspiration and a dream? I applaud your interest in your new found toy. Your dad would be proud to know you have taken the baton and are ready to take this old gal to it's next level. Too soon now, but someday I hope you can look back and say it was worth the efforts you will dedicate to the car and likewise, look back and say how fortunate you were to stumble on to the CRG! You see, there is a wealth of knowledge here and although your dad is not there to help, you will find a lot of "father" figures who will take you under their wing. Why? I think I can speak for our group in saying that we have a passion for these cars, a dedication in being true and factual and an enthusiasm that all generations are still finding an interest and love affair in keeping these cars alive. Good luck and post often.
