Restoration Stories

I was just having a quick surf over the internet this afternoon and stumbled accross It's a very interesting website with images and stories of classic cars that have been left to rot.
A lot of the authors write; how much they'd like to buy the cars and restore them. They also send in their images.
If you have images of cars you have found in barns, or ones you own and are restoring, or even your pride and joy that you have finished restoring, please send the images in with some text to and I shall post them up on this blog if you wish. That way people can leave comments and have discussions about the car.
This may be helpfull for you or it may just be a pleasure to see your car online.
How about it?

POR 15 Rust Preventative Paint

POR-15 Rust Preventative Paint 2 sizes (US pint and US gallon), 4 colours (black, clear, grey and silver)
Whilst any paint will provide some degree of protection from rust for a while, no other is as permanent as POR-15. When others have chipped, scratched, flaked, and peeled, POR-15 will still be preventing rust. Available in black, silver, gray or clear, US pint or quart POR-15 can be sprayed or brushed on to provide a rock hard, yet flexible, non-porous coating that will not shrink, peel, or crack. It is totally resistant to road salt, petrol, battery acid, etc., and actually dries harder in humid damp conditions. Ideal for suspension and chassis protection, and you can apply a topcoat of any finishing paint. This is protection you can count on.

Smooth surfaces should be treated first with POR-15 Metal Ready. Use POR-15 Solvent to thin and clean brushes.
