New Here

Good morning, I am (of course) a new member here.
Lil history here, I am 40 yrs old and have been into cars all of my life, Fast ones, slow ones. Big motors, small motors. Trucks to bikes.
I am married for 9 yrs now, have 3 children, 20, daughter, 13, daughter, 12, son. and one grandson. I owned a '70 Z-28 years ago and raced in Rockingham while in the service. I am now in the middle of rebuilding my wifes "dream" car a '69 Chevelle. My son now (who is 12) is eating, sleeping, breathing, a '69 Camaro. UURRGGG!!!!
Now here is the kicker.
1. Good luck finding a reasonable rebuilder.
2. I had a heart attack in January, which scared the pants off of everyone in the house. Which has set me back quite a bit.
3. Convince the wife that a '69 Camaro is a good thing for my son. I think it is because it will convince my son that I am on the road to recovery...

Well I look forward to sharing stories, and looking for some projects..

Re: New Here

Thanks to all,
Now the search begins, E-Bay, Craigslist, does anybody have any suggestions?? I am not looking to spend an arm and a leg here, but I understand that the '69 that me and my son are looking for won't come cheap. I am even open to piecing it together. I am fine with just getting a shell and back half of the subframe. I see that there are a bunch of good front sub-frames out there. Just need a shell to start with. I am nor mush of a body man but am willing to do some. (floorboards and quarters) but a Major strip down is'nt quite in my realm of knowledge. Any help in piecing something together would be a huge help.... Like I said before me and my son aren't afraid of jumping in and I do have the mechanical knowledge. Just need the pieces..

Thanks guys again...
