Welcome Aboard JHCRAGGAR that is some real metal working tools your showing in those pic's, and you are working them quite well as your parts are turning out quite well! And as for the picture thing, I highly doubt anyone here will complain, we "LIKE pictures" Good luck with your American Pony Car (well when your done anyway) Your "Amcar Guy" is wrong(ish) the sunbird also came with a 2.5L "Iron Duke" engine four in a row engine (4 cyl. inline) but sadly no V8 :( . To help with your registration issues take your "Amcar" guy to this site for factual information. http://monza.homestead.com/monza.html Another board member on our site, Bryan M, has compiled a huge database of information including engine sizes and option availability, This is a labour of Love for him and an ongoing work in progress, Bryan hasn't posted anything unsubstantiated, but is still working to answer some blank spaces (unanswered questions). We aren't the language police here as This board has active members like yourself from all over the world and there isn't 1 English language, it is quite different all over the world, but we try hard to understand each other and do pretty well most times, and if not we try harder! Please keep us posted Harry

I have done some rust repairs in the past.
And i did go 2 years on school learning that a welder can be used to more things then giving youre teacher a nasty electric shock.
And it can give you a very nice sun tan :)

But i do have some good friends that help me from time to time.

Hi JHCRAGGAR,
Welcome to the H community.

In here you are safe, this is where the good guys are , I had got so much help in here, I even got a private mail from Peter Ziegler, telling about you

My name is Erik and I live in Denmark, - close by - sort of - we are just a handfuld of H body guys i Europa

I have a 1976 Monza Hatchback 2+2 so we do not share a lot of bodyparts, but the way you do metalwork, you do not need any help anyway, that just look fantastic, I almost think you wanted it very rusty, just to have fun with it

Keep op the good work, I ll look you up if I go to Norway this summer

Hi from Erik
Erik - - - Thanks everybody, I enjoy this community
1974 Vega GT w auto - 1975 Monza 2+2 262 w 4 speed - 1978 Monza Spyder 305 w auto - 1976 Monza 2+2 262 w auto change to 305TPI w 4speed auto (my 4th H body)
