I want to start my restoration project

Post by iguana » Tue May 22, 2012 8:32 pm

I want to start a restoration project in Egypt ... These days I am looking for a classic sports car .... something from the 60s or early 70s I don't care about the condition because I will rebuild it from scratch ... If any of the Egyptian members knows a car that I can use for my project please advice me.

My preferences are:
- Any American 60s convertable (Not 4 doors)
- Fiat 124 spider
- Fiat 124 coupe'
- Chevrolet camaro 70s or something similar (Firebird, mustang .... ETC)
- VW Beetle convertable

As I said, I don't care about the condition, the main thing is that the car should have registration documents and the owner will not ask for a Million dollar for his peace of junk :mrgreen:

I can put you in contact with one of my friends in Egypt who can help you finding your piece of junk :mrgreen: and even sourcing the parts for it. He is in this business for so long and he is my childhood friend so no worries I will make sure that he rips you off without you even feeling.

On a more serious note, yes I can help you through this guy. Let me know...
