Hello from London, England :)

Hey Gang

Hi I'm Nick and live in London, England. I've just recently bought myself a '67 Camaro 327 RS and thought I'd pop in and say hello. Prior to the Camaro I had a Kustom '60 Ford Wagon and '67 Dodge Charger, I must say the Camaro is a league apart in drivability. I'm loving driving it!

Anyhoo thought you might like to see a few photos of the RS with a model called Emily...

Welcome to the Club! Mighty fine pictures of the car and Emily.
Love the resemblance between the two, the lines and the color.

Enjoy your membership here.

Re: Hello from London, England :)

Where is the car?
Hey first thing you need to do with your car is remove that 'caution' sticker from the fan shroud. Camaros NEVER had a sticker there. Its actually a Ford sticker but some resto catalog decided to put it in the Camaro page of their catalog and now those pesky stickers show up due to people not doing their homework on them.
Yank it off mate. And welcome to Team Camaro.

AAhhhaahaha I was going to say the same thing.. here is this great looking car with one of the best RPO's ever (a good looking woman) and then all of the sudden BANG .. there it is !! Easy fix though.

Nick , welcome to the site. Car looks great ! I would also be willing to bet Emily has a bikini on under that garment so don't be shy about it !! Post those pictures !

Thanks for the warm welcome

Didn't know about the sticker LOL. I think they got sticker happy after the resto, there is one on the underside of the trunk lid about an LSD but it doesn't have one. That's something I want to change (the diff not the sticker!)

Re: Hello from London, England :)

I'm curious as to the market for these kinds of cars, Nick? How did you hear about it? Did you pick it up over there? Is there much of a demand for the Camaro in Jolly old?

There was another chap, from your isle who was into the cars BIG time who joined this site, and was about to put scads of money into it. Haven't heard from him in a while?

Just make sure that you check under the bonnet from time to time, eh?

I guess the market if pretty limited over here what with petrol being $10 a gallon. But there are still some great shows over here and 3 active drag strips. I do a fiar bit of photography at these events, I used to to it for magazines but not so much any more. Have a look at my website: www.grantgb.com under cars. We also have some regular local meet ups and a pretty close nit group who will always help each other out. Because of the size of the market shows will normally be mixed with Hot Rods, Yanks (the nick name for classic American Cars here) and even old VWs. An example here... http://www.grantgb.com/brooklands2006.htm I used to drive aircooled VWs and then decided to make the jump to American Cars as it is something I've always wanted to do.

All my American cars I have bought from ebay in the UK. I've never bidded but rung them up , gone to see the car and done a deal. This was my Charger, which I ran as my daily for 3 years....



...then I wanted a change so sold the Charger to a guy in Germany and bought a full on Kustom Wagon....



...which turned out to be way too big and low to use everyday over here. No power steering and manual drums too So that was sold through a specialist website and the Camaro was bought. I can't believe how good it is to drive!

Nice rides (especially your current one!) -- welcome to Team Camaro -- not go take Emily out for a ride around the block in your Camaro
