Hello from Western MA

Evening everyone!
Newbie here with my first and (like most of you I'm sure) long awaited first generation Camaro. I recently purchased a 68 that is not ready quite yet I've wanted one since I was 15 and started going to car shows and cruise nights with my older brother (who is a Mustang guy!). 15 years later, my wonderful husband was kind enough to not restrain me from buying when I came across this car and so she sits in our driveway ready to be what ever I want her to be! Looking forward to tapping the forum for your wealth of information in my journey to getting this car ready for cruisin!

Hi Sara,
Welcome to this forum. I just registered here yesterday on this forum. I too have a 1968 Camaro. I bought my 1st 68 Z-28 on May 5th 1972. It is a Z-28 that still has a 302 in it. I installed a Tremec 3550 into it back in 1993. It was the 1st Tremec conversion I did...
I plan to get it back on the road again. Currently it is a single seat racecar with a full cage. It hasn't been raced since 1998 and I miss it a lot.
Enjoy your build.

Welcome to the site Sara and Mike, from another resident of the Commonwealth. Where are you located? I'm tucked up the far NE corner of the state.

Mike- is your car Butternut Yellow? If so, we have something else in common.

Hi, My car is Butternut Yellow. I'm in Framingham Mass.
I've been playing with a 68 Camaro since high school (that's 38 years now). Gotta play some more and some back on the track.
