Thread: Hello

  1. #1

    Hello

    Hi everyone
    I'm Wayne and have been a fan of Christine for years. Recently I bought a 1957 4 door Belverdere that doesn't need too much doing to it but I thought I could use some help along the way when I get stuck. With the wealth of information from the members it will be great to discuss my hobby and passion with like minded people and hopefully new friends

    Tell us more about that '57 and maybe a few photos of her as well!
    Also, where in the wide world are you from?

    Hi
    I'm amazed but then I'm sure there aren't many that slip by you. The car doesn't seem in too bad a condition. The sills need welding and some rust behind the chrome on the roof and near the back window. The gearbox seems to work fine and the car runs which I thought was a bonus and the floor seems to look ok. I saw and bought the car in Huddersfield and had it trailered down so I could find someone to restore it and do a bit of work myself as I have got to an age where I need a hobby. I've always liked the plymouth and I love the film but never thought I would own one so I took a leap of faith with this one, but just looking at it does it for me, I know it's sad. I'm in Northamptonshire if any of you guys are near

    I live in Northampton mate.
    Think outside the box. Use your imagination.

    That's awesome I'm in Rushden, I was hoping on doing the car up and going to Billing. The wife did say with the plymouths MPG that's the furthest I can drive it.:o

    I love standing around the petrol station just near the gates into Billing watching all the cars drive by and swing round the roundabout. It's a cavalcade of fantastic machines and wonderful sounds! It my favourite show of the year. Great afterwards to see the muscle cars racing each other on the A428 and the dual carriageway that leads to the M1....the whole area has that buzz about it.

    Who is gonna do the resto work for you?

    Not sure yet, still looking around as I don't want someone to get it in one day and out the next I would like a nice job on it. There is a guy at burton latimer that does classic cars but still checking people out I don't mind paying but don't want to get ripped off either. Have you got any suggestions?

  20. #20
    Yes, we have a good resto company in Shropshire called Classic American Restorations Ltd, (Bryan Hurley), who have done a few projects for friends and some work on my Thunderbird. Their rates are very reasonable and they can work to flexible budget arrangements. I.. I had a problem and told them to limit the work on the car to "no more than 200".....other guys have them work on their car to a monthly budget, (say 600 - 800 per month) and the car gets done in installments. Bryan often passes on supply discounts and has such a huge workshop, (an old steel buildings factory) that the car stays indoors during all stages of the work.

    It would cost you about 80 - 100 to have your car transported to them.

    I find Northamptonshire has planty of specialists but they all charge "Down South" rates and are too expensive for me.
