Johnny the Greek is on a distinguished road
Default Hello from Greece!!!

Hello! My name is John and I am from Greece. Sorry about my English, but you know....I am interest about old cars. I am a member of a Classic Car Club. So, some time ago, I found a Bonneville model of 1968. The car was parked about 23 years under a tree at a small village. From my childtime my dream was a Big Spectacular American car. So, I took the car from the owner to rebuild it and make it like a new. There are so many problems with the sheet metal mainly, but I am decided to make it. I talk with a body shop and I take the OK to continue!
My problem is that the old owner doesn't have the bokk of the car and I want to ask you if you can hepl me to find a brochure. Your help may be a very good step for the reborn of a car like this!
Thank you!!!!!

Check out the Classics section, I'm sure you'll find everything you need.
The 68 was one of the better looking years, in my opinion. Got any pictures of the beast?
And welcome to the Club, glad to see yet another country on our memberlist!

Yes ga93sle. I talk about the owner'* manual. I found a site with manuals of old cars, but there isn't something about 1968. I found for the model of 1969, but there is a lot of differences. I want to ask you, if you have scanned your manual, and if you can send it me with an e-mail. Sorry about my "audacity", but I want it very much to continue!

Thanks!!!![/b][/u]

Dear GonneVille I have photos from my beast, but if you see them, you will scary. The condition isn't good. The good news is that the interior is in a very good condition. For the exterior I must pay some more money, but I think that is count. Also I will make my ownHere in Greece isn't a lot of Old Classic American cars, like there in USA. So it is an other reason to reborn it!!

I don't scare easily. As long as it hasn't collapsed into a piled of orange dust, it'* fixable.
I just wanted to see what you were in for...

Below I send some photos with my "aged beast"

1.Frontside
2.Backside
3.Rust front of the driver
4.Establishment of the descent of the car

Also maybe I must cut the floor and replace it with a new, because there are some holes.....
