New guy from MA

Hi,my name is Matt and I love camaros. looking for a 68 camaro to fix-up, got a picture of my granddad taken in 1971-with his 68 camaro, it's blue with black interior. no one knows anything else about it. I want to build one just like it. He was killed in Vietnam in 1973, so all i have is this photo to go by. saw this site and thought I'd join - looks like fun and agood place to get some help.

Re: New guy from MA

just graduated HS and taking a year off before starting college. but i've been working on cars since I was 10, started out changing oil for my dad, got the bug. the only pic i have a polaroid, everything was lost when grams house burned down in 1986, when i get back home i'll see if i can get it scanned. this picture was in a cookbook she lent my aunt, so i'm lucky i have that. thanks, i'll check out brad74

you are probably going to have a good laugh, but i'm looking to buy one i can rebuild. almost had one a couple of weeks ago, but it sold before i could contact the guy. gram said granddad's was a '68 z28 blue with black seats. she sold it to a friend of granddad's stationed at ft devens. Ya, i'm a younin, and worst of all i don't even look 17, been pulled over 7 times cuz the cops though i was too young to drive. But i've done plenty of body work, replaced fenders, 1/4's, a trunk pan, and helped rebuild a 496 BB chevy this past summer.

Matt, here's a 68 that's been for sale in MA for a while. Don't know if you've looked at it already.

We've been scouring the Northeast for over a year, I think this is the one my father went to look at it, said the guy wanted too much for too little, haha. i'll send him the link, just to make sure I'm visiting my gram in florida right now, till after thansgiving. driving down to Sunrise tomorrow to look at one. this looks like a real deal.

Re: New guy from MA

Matt, first of all Welcome. Next thing, I know of a man in Port St. Lucie that is selling a 68 Camaro. He started working on it 2-3 years ago and bought at least $3K worth of Goodmark replacement panels from us. A year ago he was diagnosed with MS, which means he's had to give up his dream of rebuilding it. He said he lives 15 minutes off of Rt 95, which I guessing is the way you will be traveling on your way to Sunrise. Sorry it's so late, I just got off the phone with him, I wanted to make sure he was serious about selling it. He said he will be home all day tomorrow, so if you are interested, let me know and I will email you his address, directions and phone number. He hadn't done much work on it, which is probably a good thing, it's pretty much intact. The original engine was removed and rebuilt, 396 cu in BB, again if you are interested in seeing it, just let me know.
