Smile Hello from Alberta!

Hey I am obviously new to this website but so far I have found it very informative and could spend hours on it. I have always wanted to own a first Gen camaro and I will feel I will own one in the next year. I want to do as much reading etc to educate myself so that I can make a wise purchase.
Thanks for the great website!!

Re: Hello from Alberta!

Yes it was a local car. I picked it up in Calgary. The guy I bought it off of had it for 2 years and is buying a house so his toy needed to go. I have enjoyed a few days in the sunshine with it. I will definatly check out the Calgary Camaro Club. It has pretty low gears in the rear end so It is not really highway friendly. I am weighing out my options. I would like to cruise down the highway without reving at 3700 rpms at 60 mph.

I think that I might know who owned your car before the previous owner (his car had a really low back end)...a check with "MCGOO" on this site... who I think is still prez of the CCC. He could check this out.

Re: Hello from Alberta!

Thanks guys, I will send a PM to MCGOO and see if he knows any more history of my car. The only history of the car I know is what the previous owner has done to it. He gave me all reciepts adding up to 11 K over the last 2 years. I would like to know more about the restoration that was done 5 years ago.
Thanks, Scott

Re: Hello from Alberta!

Best purchase I ever made! Nice to see a fellow 67 vert fan. I know 5th is not OEM but I sure love it on the hway.
