Default Hi from Luxemburg/Europe

Howdy, so i'm a new member to this forum. Am a 36year old male all the way from Luxemburg/Europe. My grandfather was an american and was in the army, stationed in Bitburg/Germany back in the 50s.

Since a week now i have my new/old El Camino 1972 454 SS BB.
Unfortunately, until now am not so lucky with the car, but i try to stay optimistic and do my best (you can check my other thread in the forum for that).

Anyway, here she is, a real SS body with a non el camino 454 BB (probably from a truck from 1979-1980, i checked the casting number) :

Oh and maybe some people might find it interesting to know that I exchanged this car with my Camaro 2011 6.2l V8. It was in perfect condition..so for me a big change switching to a 50 year old car
