Newbie, but old hot rodder

Hi all. Looking to learn about these conversions! The wife and I are nearing retirement and want to cruise the U.S. in something that is our very own. I've built a few cars/trucks and I'm excited to get into a bus conversion. Wanting a project to build up. Looking forward to learning a lot here

John & Amy

Even some younger hot rodders here too. Guess I am somewhere in the middle at 54, or is that old?
