Newbie from Northern Virginia

Hello All!

I have been a lurker (another user name) on the forum for a couple of years, but now that I have my dream Camaro, I felt it was time to introduce myself. I live in Manassas, VA and have been at a number of car shows lately. As a matter of fact, I will be at the UPS show tomorrow in Laurel, MD if any of you are there and want to say hi. Here's my car:


The car was built by Nick Iannotta of Midwest Classics and Customs. I found Nick thru an eBay ad last year. After speaking with him on the phone, I was convinced that he was the right person to do my car. It was obvious that he had the knowledge and skill to do the work, and I came away feeling comfortable that he was someone who was dedicated to quality and craftsmanship. My gut feelings were ultimately validated when this beautiful machine was completed in June.

I have already met a number of great people at the car shows, and I hope to meet some of you as well.

Jeff

Re: Newbie from Northern Virginia

Welcome Jeff . I went to a family reunion once in Big Stone Gap Virginia back in 1978 or so . I remember asking to use the rest room and they sent me outside to an outhouse. When I couldn't find the outhouse I came back in side to a bunch of my relatives having a great luagh at my expense I have to admit , it was pretty funny.... the one and only time I was in Virginia and I will never forget it !
Your car looks beautiful. and that means we need more pictures ! Again , welcome to the site .

Re: Newbie from Northern Virginia

Welcome from the east side of DC over here in Maryland. Nice ride. Sorry I missed the UPS show today -- its always a good one -- too busy with car stuff -- new driver door hinge pins on my buddy's 75 Camaro, replaced motor mounts on my other buddy's 71 Camaro, and fixed instrument panel light problem, took shims out of starter, and re-aligned passenger side window glass on my car -- oh yea, had a couple of beers too.

Hi Brent - thank you. Yes, I have seen quite a few awesome 1st gen Camaros at the few shows that I have attended. There were some amazing cars in Laurel this past weekend.

Is Big Stone Gap around the Shenandoah area? I know I have driven thru at some point... I'll try to get some additional pics in the thread.

Hey - that sounds like a great day as well! Laurel was a bit too crowded for my taste. They had people parking one per parking space. I walked down to the vendor area for a coke - when I came back, the woman in the Nova next to me had her door resting against my driver's side door. I thought my head was going to explode! 1700 cars is just too many. I'm going to stick to the smaller (and safer) shows...

Hi Andrew - I'll be heading out to Winchester in a few weeks for another show. I'll wave at Front Royal as I drive past.

I have no idea Jeff. I was in Sophmore in High School (30 years ago) at the time and I was actually in Lexington , Kentucky because I had been invited to a basketball camp at UK . My mom called me and asked if I could meet her at the reunion. I remember going to the airport and my flight was on a prop plane !! I was like, " what the heck , I'm not getting on that thing"! It was beautiful country though .

Yea -- my buddies that were there said the show is getting too crowded. Some of the guys got there at 7:30 AM just to get a parking space in the lower lot. Hope the idiot with the Nova didn't hurt your door.

Welcome Jeff, from just around the beltway. I didn't make to UPS, I was helping the guy who sold me my Camaro hang drywall on his basement ceiling before he moves. But crowded, you should know about that-- living in Northern Virginia. By the way, great looking car !!

beautiful car. glad that you're enjoying it. i think that the weekly car cruise in manassas is still going strong, right? i lived in herndon until about 6 years ago, and enjoyed the cruise up to that point.

northern virginia is an awesome place to own a classic car, as there are cruises and shows all over the place.

the "mid-atlantic camaro club" was/is a fairly active camaro club in fairfax, va.

what is the upcoming show in winchester in a few weeks??

thanks

bill

Thanks! I actually lived in Va Beach from basically birth until I went away to college. Had IT jobs paid well 20 years ago in that area, I would have stayed.
