My quest to restore my '68

Hello everyone,
I am new to Team Camaro. A friend suggested that I join, so here I am. I purchased 1968 convertable camaro (327 w/ 2 speed power glide) in need of restoration. My goal is to do as much of the work as I can. Its a learning project for me as well as a labor of love. The project just got started about three weeks ago. I was hoping to have the engine pulled this week but had a small set back. Did I mention that I have never done anything like this before?

Merry

Hey, M... welcome to the TC Crew.

I like your optimism and positive attitude, eh? Just take your time, set up a plan, budget, and educate yourself with lots of manuals from guys who have beat the bush before ya. Don't be afraid to ask questions, check out the archives, and join a car club.

We've all been to that fork in the road at one time or other..
