Hi! What was your first car restoration project?
Soon I will be purchasing my first project car. I was just wondering what car all of you started on, and how old were you when you bought it. Please post your pictures if you can. This is a great site for old cars!!

Mine was a 1964 Mercury Comet Cyclone, I was 16 at the time. Wow, I used to have hair back then, time is an evil thing.

The first car I ever did was a 53 ford sedan I bought for 100 dollars. I yanked out the motor and dropped a Olds J-2 in it for power, I cruised it for years, if only I had a photo!

The first and last car I ever did a ground up resto on was a 60 Buick Electra 225, boy was that expensive! But what a great car, wish I had her back. I sold it to a guy out in California.

My first antique car restoration project was a 1928 Essex Challenger 4 dr. sedan. It took about 5 years to complete. It was not a frame up job but rather a driver type of restoration. the latest restro-project is a 1962 Chevy Impala convertable. This project is now entering it's twenty -second year,(pretty soon now)(maybe).

P.S. I entered the text to soon so here's the photo of 1928 Essex on the second entery. This year I'll have to rebuild the engine, it's rather played out. Don't fear the dog, he don't bite.

A 67 Mustang Coupe. Bought it for 300.00, put 3000.00 in it and gave it to my wife for Christmas. My brother did the body and paint, and I put in a new interior, wheels and some chrome. I'm working on a 61 Pontiac Bonneville Vista now...but want another Mustang to restore.
