Welcome!! You've come to the right place for Camaro information. Don't worry about your English. It's better than some of the people here can speak. Enjoy your car. I'm sure you don't see many others like it over there. Caio!!

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

Re: new member from italy

Ron,
Welcome to Team Camaro. Glad you're here!! I recognized your user name from the Team Chevy Forum(not a whole lot of activity goin on in those forums).It's a bummer because those forums could contain a vast amount of expertise and knowledge if people would use them.I hope the activity picks up on the "Team" site.

Re: new member from italy

Welcome to the crew Ron. Might be going to Sardinia this summer to a wedding over your way, eh? Great car you have there. You must turn a few heads over there as there probably not that many Camaros on your orads.

Thanks for the offer. Beer is great in any country! Hey... what's the price of petrol over your way? We are running around a $1.24 a litre here... and they talk of it going up!

Welcome Ron

Must be fun running a 1980 Camaro on those narrow Rome streets. I have most of my family in Treviso (near Venice) and in Alessandria (between Torino and Genova)...

I might take you up on that cold beer ...when I visit Rome..

Ron, the link to your photos above still works for me.
Is there a different link to them now? Just post the new link if so.
