Another new guy
Hello all, just want to introduce myself. Unlike most the other new guys, I don't own a first gen, at least not yet. For what its worth, however, back in my 20's I owned a 69 SS BB. I always regretted selling that car and swore that one day I'd buy another which is part of the reason I joined this forum. It's a great site with a lot of fantastic information for a guy like me trying to educate himself before one day finally buying his dream car. It was so simple back then. Today, however, at least for me, sorting out what's right and wrong with a lot of the cars on the market, has gotten somewhat complicated. Apart from reading all I can, this site seems like a great place to learn from the expertise of others, I just hope you guys don't mind me asking what might seem like a lot of dumb questions. That being said, apart from the search function, which area is the best place to post questions with respect to correctness? It's not that I'm after a numbers matching 100% correct first gen, (it would be nice) but whatever I end up with, I just want to know exactly what I'm buying and what it's worth. It's like a sharks tank out there. It's hard to determine what's real and what's not and what should be real and what isn't.
Thanks guys, and again; great site, some of you guys really seem to know your stuff!
