Hello Camaro Buffs

Just got registered and don't know if I am in the right place. New to this thing called internet. I am a Camaro owner since '78. I still own my high school hotrod. '68 SS 396. Has been mothballed for the last 15 years and I am now pulling it out to get her back on the road. Looking for a forum to help with all the questions I will be having on the restore. I thank you all in advance for your insite and possible advice on my true love. She is straight as an arrow but I want to do some upgrades to a few areas. Namely---Front end suspension, brakes, and underhood appearance. Looking forward to chatting with all you other Camaro heads.

Re: Hello Camaro Buffs

Welcome aboard ! There is a ton of knowledge here.

Had my 67 tucked away for about 8 or 9 years.

Would hate to pay the bucks people are paying for these cars now.
You were smart hanging on to her.

Re: Hello Camaro Buffs

Thank you fella's for your responses. Looking forward to your guys help and knowledge. One of the first things I am looking for is front end suspension. With the research I have done I have found some sites with the upgraded polyurethane bushings and such. Before I go to ordering from one of the sites does anyone have a suggestion for me to look at first? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks again, Dennis.

Re: Hello Camaro Buffs

OK a little history on her---- Have owned her since '78. Was a daily driver till '85. Drag raced for another 5 to 6 years--- ya know Sunday out at the park. Best time---13.02 in the 1/4 mi. 108 mph. At that point I got interested in Harley's and my soon to be wife. My son came along and my Camaro took a further backseat. Was put in the garage and mothballed till recently. My son now is 15 and wants to know what a real American Muscle car is all about. The body is clean and straight. Interior is near perfect--- I always took exceptional care of her before the mothballing. Always in a garage out of the elements. Does need a paint job. Will redo the color I got her in--- Not original color but I fell in love with it. Pure virgin white with the dark blue racing stripes. Aqua interior. I do promise pictures as I progress. Ya allenjoy your Bowtie day, Dennis.
