Hi folks, I'm Average Ivan from Denver. I own a '62 Valiant that I cherish more than a man should love a lump of metal. The car has been my daily driver during the cold months (I have a 99 Miata that needs attention when the sun is shining), and will continue to be as long as I can keep it running. It has some rust and some dings, but for an everyday car, I could not be happier. I know next to nothing about working on cars, but have gotten lots of information from this site. The interior is now a friendly place to be, but the mechanicals act up from time to time. Apparently, the engine is somewhat special as it is an aluminum block. This does not mean much to me, but I guess it adds to the cool factor some.
