Smile Lurker Lurker here!

Just thought I'd jump up and introduce myself. I've been lurking around this board for while, and since I've been seeing some pretty good stuff here.......and I'm all about learning about these cars from everybody I can..... I thought I'd come on in.

As ya see in sig, I've got two I've been learning with and trying to get back to their former glory. I've got a ways to go with them, and will be looking forward to learning a whole lot more from you all!

Thanks for the welcomes......I've found myself getting more and more into this 44 thang, ya know! I've got a long way to go to get these cars into the condition that I'd like to see em in, but I'm in no hurry, and I am "enjoying the journey" as per se. Thanks, I really like those fuchs myself. I'm going to put some 15" ones on the other one here soon, or visa-versa. Yeah, those spoilers are going to be fun to keep from screwing up all the time!
