Default Newb as it gets

Hey group.

I am as green as can be. I worked in a gas station and did basic tune-ups and tire changes when I was a high school kid in the '60s. I have always wanted to get back into it but I have never done anything more challenging than a simple water pump swap before so I have lots to learn.

I don't know the best way to go just yet so I am lurking and learning all I can here. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Some of the photos here make me drool. I especially like the rat rods and I have an old GMC from the '40s in my backyard. I don't have any idea where to begin but that seems like the fun part of the adventure.

Cheers,
Dave

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
