Hello

Hi all. I became a Camaro nut in the 1970's. When I was around 8-10 years old, my sister (who was in high school at the time), would drive me around in dad's 1968 327 sport coupe Camaro. She liked to have fun and would let me tag along to house parties, the beach, etc. To bad dad sold the car before I was old enough to drive...

Fast forward many years...about a year ago I acquired an 1969 SS 396/325. The car is very stock and unmolested but needs to be painted back to its original color, plus it could use a few odds and ends.
