Hello everyone

My name is Jim and I am the original ownerof an un-restored 69 Camaro SS396 L78 TH400 410 posi with 22070 miles on it. When I took it out of the barn last summer it had 21,066 miles on it. It sure was a lot of fun putting that thousand miles on the car last summer. I can't wait to get it out this year.
I have been looking on this site for a little while and decided to join because you people seem to have quite a bit of knowledge and maybe I might be able to help someone out also.

Re: Hello everyone

I was afraid someone would ask for pictures. I'm not very good with computers and I really don't know how to post pictures on this site. If you have a copy of Hemmings Muscle Machines for February of 08 there are pictures in there. Maybe I can find some instructions how to post pictures somewhere on the site and if I do I have a few pictures that I could post.

Re: Hello everyone

Yes John the car is white with a dark blue interior.
The aluminum foil is on the gas line from the fuel pump to the carburetor and on the heater hoses where the fuel line passes. It's been on there since 1969. Last year I put some new aluminum foil around the carburetor area because the old foil had deteriorated.
I ran the car in pure stock and they did not allow us to have cool cans in that class. The aluminum foil was an attempt to insulate the gas line to keep the gas as cold as possible for more horsepower. It also prevented any vapor lock.

Cool Re: Hello everyone

Congrats and Welcome Jim..
You should be proud of yourself,
..knowing not to sell your baby when the rest of us were parking in line at the gas station (early 80's)..

There are a lot of Camaros owners that look up to visionaries like you.
How many guys can tell there wives and children,
"I had my Camaro before you, and will long after you."
