Hi everybody. I recently came into possession of a 53 Chevy 210 that my now passed grandfather bought and fixed up in the early 2000's. He was on a vacation to Branson from his home in New Mexico when he found it. I think it was in pretty good shape and mostly needed cosmetic work. He got it painted and sent the chrome to El Paso to be refinished. When I got it the brakes were gone. I can tell from the little bit I've done to them that he never touched them so no telling how long it has been. Have a few questions for working on these so here I am and thought an introduction was in order! I'm looking forward to having it back on the road and enjoying it like grandpa did.

Welcome to ChevyTalk! Its special to have a car with a family background.

Max

I'm originally from the ONCE great city of Flint, Michigan. The birthplace of General Motors, where A C Spark Plug was formed and headquartered, where the first Corvettes were hand built, and where my 1955 Chevy was made.
