Default Hello

Hi folks. I'm Hubert, and I've had a 1970 Chevelle SS396 for the last few years. Long story short, it's a perfect builder with less than 17,000 miles on it and very few problems but since it's pretty much sat in my mother's garage for the last 30 years it needs some work done to be roadworthy. Right now, needs the brakes rehabbed and the rubber replaced, a new AC condenser and a paint job. The interior's nearly perfect but does need a few things done to make it factory original.

Unfortunately I don't have any way of posting up pictures unless there's someone here who hosts them and would be willing. The car is red with white stripes, black bucket interior. Previous A-bodies in my family are another 70 Chevelle, only that one was a black cherry/white stripe SS454 that came from the factory with a bench seat, believe it or not. My dad was sitting in the dealership doing the paperwork for a blue 396 when he saw that one arrive on the car hauler, and when he saw it he tore up the contract on the blue one and bought the 454 instead. We've also had a 72 Buick Skylark and a 72 Cutlass Supreme.

I'll be asking questions on where to get things and what parts I need to do things, because I'm not much on big blocks. I'm a GM nut, but I've never had any dealings with the big blocks. I also hope to offer advice where I can to assist others as I sometimes see things at an angle to everyone else and can sometimes see solutions to problems that are unconventional. Hoping to be an overall asset to the site.

I'm from somewhere in Oklahoma.

Don't have too many good shots of the car, but here's what I do have. Here the car is in my mother's garage.
