      I’m trying but I don’t see the tree icon with the arrow. I’m trying to use my phone. I have to admit that she looks rough right now. Been neglected for a few years.

you need to go into the full editor to get the tree icon, the quick reply doesn't do it

How do I do that? I see a tree that wants me to type in a web address but not any place to upload. Is it because I’m a brand new member?

Welcome Josh!  As you figured out, you have been upgraded to a full member.  What's the back story on your car?  Looks like it's been sitting for some time.

It was my dads. He got it back in the late 90s. He beefed up a 351 (kept the numbers matching on a stand) and put in it to play around at the track and anyone who wanted to play around on the street. After he passed I inherited it and it had to sit while I was in the navy. After I got out it had a lot of problems so I decided to do a complete tear down of it....money got tight for a while and once I had money to start it we got hit by Harvey and I’ve been sinking all of my money into repairing our house. Now that I’m almost done with the house I’m looking at getting started on the car again and hopefully getting her back to where my dad had her, or better.

I will most definitely be needing advice. I’m not as good of a mechanic as some others, but I have some knowledge. First time I saw this website I read about eliteman building Stacey Lynn. After reading that I figured this was a good place to be for advice and just overall appreciation of cars.
