I am just beginning to restore my 1967 Camaro. She's my first car, and I purchased it way back in 1982. She was a great car to tool around and cause trouble in back in High School, but she's been in storage since 1992. From 86 to 92, she was in and out of storage due to my college years, so I've really only been able to drive her for about 5 or 6 years.
She's been on my mind for restoration for several years now, but I haven't had the money or the place to take on the project. (see http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/jour...94&action=view
) That's a little more history on the car.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I wrecked my Audi daily driver and decided not to replace it. Instead I'll drive my old truck and put my insurance money into my old friend, the 1967 Camaro.
My plans are to change the suspension for better handling, upgrade the rear-end and drop a crate motor in her. When I'm done there, I'll save up some more money for paint. Her interior is dated, but still in good shape, so upholstry will have to wait.
Suspension will be my first task, but I don't know where to start. I hope the members here will give me some good advice on upgrades. If this has been the topic of recent discussions, please point me to the threads.
Thanks in advance and I look forward to getting to know you all.
