Default Hi Newbe From Oxford England

Hi guys, A little about my ride... Its a 67 Belair 283 manual 3 speed, which i have had for about 8 yrs or so.. and its in dire need of resto! dont get me wrong, she fires up ok with a little smoke... and the knocking stops when she'* warm. etc..
Bela has been off the road for about 3 years now. I guess too many toys mean some get neglected! and now is the time to bring her back to life again. enough said. Ratski.

Welcome to the forum Graham!
I wonder if some of the smaller side streets would be wide enough for the 67 Belair to even fit through over there ? LOL.
