Default restore 57

I have been trying to restore my 2dr coupe for 1year and 8months and I have had the worst luck with help. The mechanics I've tried has been of no ability to rebuild, but only good at taking money and fooling me into thinking they were moving forward. I was trying to make it to KY this year but looks impossible. I need quality mechanics in the West Central Fla. area, does anybody have a name of someone I would appreciate it. I'm trying to come to Tri-Five even without my 57. SAD

Try some local car clubs that have Trifives surely there should be something around your area that has interest in these cars

You understand this is not a 24 hour crisis hotline. Lots of guy are on and off the site and may not see your post for help. I was on here a lot yesterday and never saw it.

If you were not so far away I would offer to help. Not much about these cars I don't know about...and have learned over the last 48 years of working on them.

Contact Danny Howell @ SouthEast Chevys in Apopka. 407 886 1964 He knows lots of folks all over Florida that may be able to help......and those you don't want to get involved with.
