Dream come true

Hi Everyone!

It's my 40th birthday in 12 days and my husband brought home a 68 - what a great guy!! I have always wanted a Camaro and of course it had to be a '68 - that seems to be a pretty good year! HA!!

We are new to the classic car world as well as internet forums so this is going to be a fun and educational ride.

Our car has been restored but has been sitting in the trees for the last 5 years so there are some things that need to be addressed and we are hoping that Team Camaro we help us along the way.

The car has a 400 small block with a 350 transmission and a Holly Projection 2D. We have a problem with fuel leaking into the trunk but I believe I will leave the Welcome forum and got to a more techincal forum for this post.

We look forward to entering the brotherhood of Camaro owners - if it's anything like our motorcylce brotherhood we are in excellent company.

Hey Skip

Thanks for the reply and Happy Early Birthday to you too! I would love to post a picture but I can't figure out how. I might spend all day in front of a computer but not to savy when it comes to things like this.

BYW - the Orange Crush is incredible!!

Re: Dream come true

Happy Birthday and Welcome to the Club, Linette & family.

Don't fall for what others tell you, you have received the best year, thank the hubby for us, he's a keeper it sounds like.

Now, if others persist you should have gotten a '67, help them ease their anxiety, tell them you have a '67 with a rare RPO WWD, and their condition will improve instantenously. (Wing Window Delete, comes with side markers, split tailights, and rectangle front parking lights)
