As my name indicates, I have been a car enthusiast as long as I could drive---well even before that
For some reason, I seem to stick to the early 70's chevrolet. I have restored a number of cars over the years, but have always loved the camaro
Some of my frame off restorations:
1971 Chevy big block AC Super Cheyenne Shortbox
1971 Pro Street Shortbox--650 HP big Block
1971 Chevrolet Z28 60,000 original miles.
I sold all of these cars over the years, and was out of projects.
Last Year, My wife said she would like a 69 Camaro. Well I said---OK!!!! I think I can find one to retore to your liking. After looking at different car shows, pictures, albumns, etc. Her wish list included:
Easy starting, reliable driver (translation--LS motor)
Smooth running, no earth shaker drag car (Translation--LS again)
Air Conditioning (Translation--Vintage Air)
RS Model (Liked the headlights)
So I started looking around. A few months later, I came across this:
The short Story: The PO got it when he was 16, drove it like a 16 year old would. Blew up the motor--sat for years. Took it somewhere to restore. That person stripped it down, sandblasted, put quarters on, then quit. Sat for a few more years, when the PO decided he would probably never get to it. So he sold it. 30 years after he got it. I know he had a hard time parting with it. My deal was I would send him a link to the rebuild thread. Thanks Daniel!!!
I bought it as a body shell, and boxes of parts. This will be my wifes new ride. Eventually
Frost green with black deluxe interior. X11 code. It will become an RS car, Fathom green with a white Hockey stripe.
Pretty solid car, just a couple spots in the toe board that need attention for metal work.
So I got it home, and the journey begins. I hope you don't mind, but I will probably have a lot of ??? on what is this--what goes here--what is the best--whatever. You know the drill
