      This thread is amazing, Dang you MB you beat me to the offer plus I had no idea you were that young.
      I'm an old crusty dude of 47 and just love seeing all the young interest in these cars.
      Atomicrm, those pics posted by Craig look pretty cool to me, my first ride was a 64 El Camino when I was way too young to legally drive it and compared to that you have really scored here.
      It has a big back seat... Plenty of room to haul your friends around that don't have a car yet!
      For sure join the club and when you get ready for a different car be sure to keep that one.

            It's worth the membership fee just to get the SDC publication "Turning Wheels". If you haven't seen that magazine yet, you're in for a treat.

            I would also echo the advice for good seatbelts. Getting your driver's licence only begins the learning process. It's an old car and has no built in safety features. You won't spoil the value of the car with such upgrades.
