    Default Hi from Texas

    My name is James Martin, I am a disabled veteran. I have been in a wheelchair for 21 years. I have a 59' El Camino I bought new...(yeah right) No really I bought it in 02' from Minnesota. It was really an Arizona car there on consignment. It has a 454, turbo 400, front disk brakes, 295 50 15's on the rear. Want to know more? Ask.

    New here, but I have been around for a long time. I had to retire because of copd from my body shop where I repaired and rebuilt vehicles. Also built rods and customs, specializing in 69 camaros.

    I worked for Super Chevy for 5 years and toured the ISCA show circuit for 10 years winning the championship in 98 with my full custom 69 camaro. New here but will try to get some pictures posted.

    Welcome to the site Troycurt. Start a new "Welcome" thread for yourself so your introduction doesn't get over looked! Especially if your going to be posting pics of a machine like that


    ETA: And, since I somehow missed this it, Welcome Elkyman!

    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
    I wish I was the man my dog thinks I am.
