Hi everybody! My name is Peter Thornton, I reside in upstate NY. I have been a car lover my whole life, having owned many muscle cars back in the day....Roadrunner, Duster340, Fairlane GT, Chevelle SS, Camaro RS, just to name a few. I currently have a 1977 Corvette (driver), a 1979 355 Malibu I'm fixing up for my wife to race in the street class at Skyview Drags. I run a 1977 Malibu drag car in the pro class at the same track, and have since the track's inception in 2004.

I do all my own work (body and mechanical) on all my vehicles. I am a displaced factory worker, and will be earning aa assoc. degree in auto body when I finish my education in 3 weeks. I plan on becoming an insurance adjuster or an estimator after the holidays (with any luck).

I would like to take this time to thank Ken for accepting my membership, and look forward to forging new friendships with the likeminded members on this site

Thank you....Pete

Guys Pete isn't really a "noob" but this is a new name for him. I had a problem last summer that was related to his old account here and I wound up deleting it because of that so Pete is an old member with a new account. But glad to have him back! \:D/

Steve, I'm from Spencer,NY, which is in between Ithaca, Elmira, Watkins Glen, Owego, and Waverly. I am centrally located, about 1/2 hour from everywhere. Where is Stamford? Thanks for the welcome! Love the car!

Hi Barry! I remember you when you had, I think it was a Vega? I joined this site right after it was formed. Glad to see the Baretta is done, what a handfull.
