New Guy Old Camaro

Well, I've been lurking here for a while and I figured I'd go ahead and register. My father and I are beginning to restore his 1969 Z28. The car is Rally Green with a Vinyl Roof and Black Stripes. The car has been parked since the late Eighties in a dry garage. It has almost no rust only some surface rust and a destroyed battery tray. Yesterday we hooked a battery up and the electrical system seemed to work, the lights came on, wipers ect. The car also cranked once we had proper voltage at the battery. Just a side note he has owned the car since 1975.

Well I hope this car will be on the road by Thanksgiving and I hope to become a contributing member of this community!

Here is a picture of the car around 1977-1980.

Re: New Guy Old Camaro

Doug welcome aboard and nice ride... You might want to lube, drain all fluids and change all filters before you take here out and about.

Re: New Guy Old Camaro

Welcome to the Club, Doug.

Soak the battery tray and fender with baking soda and water. I'm sure you & Dad know this then rinse with cold water. Thanksgiving will be here before you know it.

Re: New Guy Old Camaro

Welcome Doug! That battery tray issue seems pretty serious. I think you should sell immediately before it becomes too bad

Seriously, sounds like a very nice ride!
