New here - building a 69 Camaro for my bro-in-law in Iraq

Newbie here, but mostly because I'm a diehard Pontiac guy and tend to stay away from the Camaro websites. But, I'm here because of a good cause! We're building a 69 Camaro to show our appreciation for serving our country. My bro-in-law is in the Army and is currently serving in Baghdad, Iraq. His mother, who he lost a few years back, used to own a 69 Camaro. He always talked about wanting to get a Camaro like his mom's old car.

So we've decided to build him one and surprise him with it when he gets back.

We are still searching for the car, haven't found a good one yet for a decent price. We're trying to find one that doesn't need too much body work, as we have a local guy donating the body work.

It really is amazing how people have come together for this project! A few sponsors of this site have offered parts and services, once we get all the details ironed out I'll post pics and all that good stuff.

I just hope I can find a car soon. Seems like everything around my area is ungodly priced.

To follow along with the project, check out http://www.patriotdream.org or check my posts here. Undercover Innovations and G-Machines Racing have already helped out with some donations, and other companies have showed interest, so this is going to be an amazing vehicle!

If anyone is interested in helping out, just give me a shout or email me through the webpage.

Thanks for the well wishes! I'm sure I'll be asking a lot of questions, I could build a 2nd gen TA with my eyes closed, but Camaros are a new beast to me.

It's hard as hell to find a good car. The project is almost totally donation based, so it needs to be a cheap car.

Why couldn't his mom have driven a Mustang?

Because she had class..............

Re: New here - building a 69 Camaro for my bro-in-law in Iraq

We will be taking everyone who donates at least $5 to PatriotDream.org and putting their name, or if they wish, someone else's name in honor or memory of them.
We will be taking all of the names and printing them out of card stock and having two sets made. One set will be presented to Shawn when we give the car to him, and the other set will be placed under the back seat of the Camaro so it will forever be a part of the car.
We have a line on a car, but we are short on funds. If you can spare anything, please let us know. Funds can be sent to [email protected] and be sure to note what name(s) you would like to have printed on the card.
