Hello, I am a new member but have been surfing 2DP multiple times per day for more than 2.5yrs. I feel like I know the more frequent contributors to the fist six categories or  “forums for everyone”.  I found out about 2DP when I met “Dan” at the Downers Grove, IL. cruise night in 2013. He posted photos of my 69 Chevelle shortly after. (I could not find to link)

 When I was a teenager in the 60’s I had a strong dislike for the 2DP cars. They were the old man cars. Now that I am one they are what gets my attention over any 2dhtp. I chose the use name ‘Postal’ because I am now ‘post crazyyy’.

For many years I was strictly 66-67 and a few 68-72 Corvettes. I still have one but now I am more into steel cars. I am known only as “Corvette Jim” to many at the local cruise nights.

Currently under my care are:

1969 Chevelle 300 2DP with an old school LS7, M21, 3.42 posi, 44,000 mile car.

1966 Olds F85 2DP with 455, Super T10, 3.42 posi, 9,750 mile car, Bronze/Red! ending project

1964 GTO 2DRHT. 389, 3x2, M20, 3.36 posi, 70K miles owned 16yrs

1966 Corvette cpe, 427, M21, 3.55 posi. 72,000 miles owned 28yrs

1967 Olds 442 2DP, 400, 4spd, 63,000 miles recent acquired next project

Welcome from West Chester PA! You have great 2 door post cars, wow! I love the perspective from when they were new, I always wondered what car guys thought of them back when they were plentiful.

Thanks for the welcomes. There were quite a few times I wanted to butt in on some conversations but was unable to.

Dan,
I live in the SW burbs and very seldom get to Downers. The avitar photo is one of yours as are two of the others from DG when I met you. The other is driving into the Morris cruise night. If your ever in the Orland Park/Tinley Park area you can contact me and a meet me at my home away from home. That is where both the cars are stored currently.

Below are some photos of cars I sold recently. The other cars are not in my newer computer and the disc w/pics wont load. I will try some more later

62 was sold 3 months ago after 18Years.

66 corvette was sold 4 yaers ago after 24 years.

66 Chevy was sold 10 months ago after 5 years. I bought it from my brother after I sold my 66 427 Belair.
