just wanting to join the enthusiasts

After searching for 1st gen camaros, I finally "pulled the trigger" and bought a '67 camaro. I have been searching for almost 10 years, that's right, 10 years and 3 marraiges for a 67-69 camaro. I have driven probably 2000 miles to look at 20 cars and found one that I think has potential. I am not a dealer, a "flipper", but a true dedicated gearhead who has two A-bodies and has been on team chevelle since '99. It makes me sad to admit that the car I bought this week could have been had for 1/3 of the price when I started, but such is life. Please give me some support as I have supported Al and his two sites for a long time. I've learned little of Camaros, and a ton of Chevelles and El Caminos (my 1st car in 1980 was a 1972 chevelle). Charlie Lillard (clill) is my hero and I wish he could adopt me, incidentally.

Sincerely,

Mike

Re: just wanting to join the enthusiasts

Thanks folks. Dave, I live in Carlsbad but spent 38 of my 42 years on this planet in West L.A.

I often wish that I had chosen a much cheaper hobby like needlepoint or gardening, but what are you going to do.

Re: just wanting to join the enthusiasts

Thanks for the replies. I figured I should at least show what I got. Here it is new money pit....that is not me winning the auction as it bought it but the guy couldn't stop the auction. I'm not going to boast about getting a great deal, but the car is one of the least molested/misrepresented I've found. The motor and trans are weak, but I can build those myself, still haven't decided which way to go.
