New guy from PA

Well I never thought I'd be posting on a Camaro site but here I am. My name is John and I live in Danville Pa. I just received a 68 Camaro in trade for a 1946 Dodge hot rod that I had for a long time. I'm into just about every type of odd ball car there is. I owned everything from a Packard to Mustang IIs. I always wanted a 68 Camaro and when this trade offer came around thought is was time for the next chapter in my car hobby. What I got was a Ex drag car with a truck load of new parts. I'm not sure what I going to build yet. I don't think a restored car in my cup of tea so thats out but thinking of trying to build the all around package a good handling, good looking, fast, dependable car. Well I'm off to serch old post before I start asking questions.

Re: New guy from PA

Welcome John! Sounds like "Pro-Touring" is the direction you will be going. defined as looks mostly stock, but with modern chassis engineering and drivetrain, with some interior mods thrown in

Welcome to Team Camaro. Sounds like you'll have a fun time deciding what to build as there are tons of directions you could take and lots of great OE and aftermarket parts available.

Re: New guy from PA

Thanks for the welcome guys. I'll take some pics of my new toy and share them when I get back from the GoodGuys show in Charlotte this weekend. Anybody from here going? I'll be there in my father inlaw 55 ford two door.

KevinW. Pro touring is the way I think my car is headed.

bcvet. Danville is about in the middle of PA and if your asking if I like football sure but I'm a Ravens fan. I grow up close to the old Colts training center and even seen them sneak out of town.
