    I have really wanted a classic ride for awhile now, and I think I may have found one? Its a 1961 chevy Apache truck in running condition.

    I'm hoping I can possible find people who know about restoring old cars and making them run and look like new. About how much do people usually invest in projects like these?

    sigh.... Small block v8s are so over done. Do a full blueprint on that original I6 and it will go forever and it'll be a truck that is original and stand out from the majority of the resto'd trucks out there right now.
