Hi everybody!

I am Roman. Strange name? It is! I am Russian. So don't be very critic at me on my language sometimes. But if you need any advise or help on your classic body restoration bear me in mind!!! I am more than 20 years in the business and really can help you.

Nice to see you on the forum Roman and don't worry about your English because half of us aren't that good at it either and we're all worse at Russian.

I hope you'll post some pictures

Greetings from Russia! My name is Musa, I'm 21 years old and i'm 1962 Gaz 21 Volga owner. Surfing on internet i discovered this forum. I always wanted classic european car like Alfa Romeo, Mercedes, Porsche, Triumph or MG but here in Russia i can afford myself only soviet "classic" because it's cheap. Import taxes makes old sports cars expensive, just imagine, to import mid 60s or 70s american can you need at least 50k$ (without car price) in you pocket. So, as i said now I restore Gaz 21, it's my first car ever, i bought this to practice and earning expirience in car restoration and maintenance. My english isn't good, but i hope we will understand each other.

Hi Musa,

Welcome to the forum. Your english is very good and better than many native speakers.

If importing complete cars is so expensive is it possible to import parts without incurring heavy import duty? If not how about rebuilding a standard Russian saloon with a more exotic body?

Peter

Thank you guys. Import car parts isn't cheap too. At present rebuilds (making coupes, customizing, hot rods and street rods) is popular, but rarely someone finishes his projects. We have no good car restoration and fabrication industry, so there is problem with spare parts even for russian cars.

Hi Nick,

Steve is just prejudiced (Francophile) Wink

Go with Rick's advice and keep the Riley.

It is true, the French have always looked after me well when I visit, but I think this is mainly because they enjoy my lousy attempts at speaking their language..... keeps them entertained.

I'm sure I would keep the Riley too if I saw it..... love anything old me Cool

Hi.. I'm Steve, just turned 60 and I drive a 1987 Corvette although its been up on jacks this last year being fettled and readied for new paint..
This is as young a vehicle as I ever want to drive. I much prefer older cars and the way they work, sound, smell and feel..

Retirements on the horizon and its a case of "what to get next to keep me amused!"

I hope I can contribute well to this forum.. I'll put up images when I can of things I've been doing.

Hi all: Just joined the site, my name is Andy & I'm based near Neath in South Wales.
Originally trained as an Auto electrician, back when a lot of your cars were still in regular use. Although i'm getting a bit rusty through lack of use i've still got my test kit etc, if anyone within say 25 miles of me needs a hand with their electrics i'd be only too happy to help out.
Only thing I ask is that fuel costs are covered & obviously you need to make decent tea Lol.
I also repair Vintage radios & cb's etc if anyone is stuck.



Andy
