    Newbie!

    Hi All,
    I wanted to introduce myself. I'm Nick from Ireland (via the UK) and have recently bought a two tone green 69 108 van from one of your members. Looking forward to getting it here and steadily improving it.
    Thanks Nick

    Irish69-108 - how does you get an old Chevy Van to Ireland?? Just curious - thatíll be a long trip! Maybe you should get Derrick and others to fill it full of lots of spare parts first!!
    Best of luck in getting it home safely and starting your wrenching journey.

    Cheers,
    Ry

    Hi Ry, Thanks
    That is indeed the plan - and take it to Houston and put it in a container ship.
    Thanks Nick
