Default G'day From Melbourne Australia!

I have been checking out BHP for some time now, and finally have become a member.iMy name is Chris, born and raised in Australia, and a 100% full time car nut, car collector, car restorer and hot rodder. My parents were both born in India, and migrated to Australia in the late 1960's, hence my interest in this sight.

My main interest is in American Classic cars of the 1930's 40's 50's and 60's, my collection currently consists of a 1961 Plymouth Fury, 1959 Chevrolet Belair, 1956 Cadillac coupe Deville, 1955 FJ Holden special, 1971 ford f100 pick up., and 1964 Ford Falcon XM coupe, all are driven on a regular basis the falcon being my daily driver

I am an industrial designer/mechanical engineer by qualification and currently self employed running my own Auto restoration business.

I look forward to sharing in the many interesting stories/adventures regarding classic cars in the not to distant future!

Welcome aboard Chris. We look forward to hearing your experience and expertise in automobiles.

Why don't you start a workshop branch in India?

Chris:

Welcome to Team BHP, pal. Nice car collection. How does it feel to be doing what you love for a living? Here's hoping you add many more cars to your collection.
