I have had some interest from my facebook page to start a build thread on a 1954 Dodge C1 pickup I am building into a hot rod so I will start by posting some older photos and update as the project progresses. Thanks for the interest - Thompson's Garage.

I don't think Autocad is hard to use but I do have 20 years of using it. I think you could teach yourself to use it in a couple weeks its fairly easy to learn and has a good help section.
