Thanks for sharing the story. As I read along, I was thinking "You better get an A on this". I was glad to see you did.

According to my records, I bought my 56 on May 23, 2003 and it looks like I joined CT the next day. I don't work on the car as much as I would like and still don't know as much about how to work on it as I would like. When I do work on it though, this is the first place I go to see how what I want to do has been done before. Even when I'm not doing anything with it, I still like to check in to see what others are up to and maybe get an idea of something I can plan for the future.

Thanks for all you do to keep the place going.

You can't drink all day...

Well HB day!

Mine was purchased in 82 in Southern Ca driven as DD until 87. Moved to Texas, disassembled because I found a stash of Classic Chevy mags in a bookstore. Frame off started. Two moves latter painted and rolling chassis. Two moves latter, and some 15 years, realized had to start over. Now have a short list of 20 or so items to put back on road. She won’t be pretty but she gonna run again.

Happy Birthday to Chevytalk! I found the site by chance when I needed it most. My first Chevy was a 56 210 sedan that I had in high school. I never thought I would sell it. As it drove away in 1982 I thought to my self, maybe I shouldn't have sold it. Anyway, I never thought I would be able to do to it what I wanted and life goes on.I took the money and learned to fly. A life long ambition.
Fast forward 20 years, kids are grown now it's just the wife and me. I start thinking about the old cars and how much I enjoy working on them so I start looking. Found a 56 210 hardtop in good condition and the right price. I bought it in 2002 and began the project. This is when I found Chevytalk. I was familiar with the car and the mechanics and was able to do most of the work myself but how the hobby had changed! This is where Chevytalk has proven to be invaluable. The willingness of everyone to share information is such an asset. The 56 is now done and on the road and I would post a picture if I could ever figure out how to do it(i'm not much of a computer guy). Thanks again to Chevytalk and all of the members. You don't know how valuable you are in helping to keep the hobby alive!

Well, I've been here for most of it, and it's been great.

Congrats on 20 years.

I found CT in late 2001 right after buying my Belair.
Without Chevytalk, I don't think I ever could have finished it.
Happy Birthday CT and Thanks Tony.

Been around for a while. Lots of interesting topics, LOTS of help. Met some really nice people on here, some even in person.
Happy Birthday.
