Hey all

Hello all,
I just wanted to say, Hi!

My name is Kai. I'm 20 years old. I finally have my Camaro running.
A little backstory, the Camaro was actually my mom's. She got it wehn she turned 16. She drove it for about 3 years until she met my dad and they moved to Italy. So the car pretty much sat there forever. She left it to her dad, who put the car in my name when I turned about 7. Anywho, the car never ran again after she left it with him. It is offically back on the road after about 20 years, give or take a few.

It is a 67'. I was skeptical about repairing it. It was with my own money. It needs a ton of work. The paint is gone and the body is rusted. The interior is also bad. The two front seats have been torn, the rats got in the car. The bacseat though is in good condition, no tears or anyting. The carpet is peeling off. Umm lets see.. the glove box has lost its screw so it just hangs down. The dash has a few tears in it. And thats about it.

If anyone would like to see some pics just lemme know ill post them.
I'm going to need all the help I can get about what I should do.
I dont know two much about it. It's a 3 speed and its a six cylinder if I recall.
Thanks all.

-Kai

Re: Hey all

Thanks all for the welcome =)
Quick question, Someone stole one of the original license plates on the car. Is there a site or somewhere I can go to replace it?

Re: Hey all

Welcome from Niagara! Good story and of course we'd all like to see photos. Is your grandfather going to help you to get your car back on the road?

Re: Hey all

Sorry to hear that. Your car doesn't look too bad from the photos. Cars in a lot worse shape than that get fixed-up here.
