    Hello,

    My nephew and I are working on a 63 Valiant that he received last summer as a HS graduation present. This is his first "classic" car and my first Mopar project.

    We have been going through all the basics getting her road-ready and looking forward to sharing the wealth of knowledge here, as well as sharing any related experiences.

    Thanks,
    Eric Brown
    San Diego, CA

    1963 Plymouth Valiant (Joint Project)
    1964 Buick Skylark (87 GN drivetrain)
    1966 Buick Skylark GS (401 Nailhead)
    1987 Buick GN (Mildly molested)

          Great looking GN, always liked the Darth Vader look.
          My asshole brother had two 65 Gran Sports, one automatic, one had a 4 speed and dual quads from a Riviera, both 401 nailheads of course.
