I am thinking that "beginner" doesn't sound like someone between tire-kicker and enthusiast. Maybe it should be something like "Enthusiast Kicker" or some such. Then "Newbie" could become "FNG"... just ramblin'.... (trying to get up past 100 posts, to be honest...)

Since my car is in pieces and I’m going to rebuild the 289, I need to get some ideas on how to “dress” the engine bay. I don’t want to end up with an abomination of blue, red, yellow, black and chrome - so pop your hoods!
I’ll get it started ;)
