New Guy from Corona Ca.

First, I have to say I love the site and how quickly everyone responds to posts.

While in High School my father made a deal with me that if I kept up my grades he'd buy me a car. Nothing fancy and nothing new just something to get me from point A to point B. Lucky for me just about that time back in 1986 a cousin of mine was buying a new Mustang and wanted to get rid of his old green bucket. That Green bucket ended up in my lap, boy the Hot Rod Gods were looking down at me. It's a 1969 Green on Green Camaro Ralley Sport which had already been passed on by one cousin for a 240Z. This car has been in our family since 1982 originally from TN moved up to Philly and now we are in California. I abused it as a young teen turning it into a nitouse car racing down the Meadows and Front Street. Never listening to my father who always told me to put the AC back in the car.
Well, here were are all these years later and I'm now just starting to think about putting the AC back in it. I brought it to California in 1997 killed that motor off and it sat until last October. I stuffed a tame 350 in it bought from a friend and am now just looking forward to keeping it on the street.
As I said it a 69 RS, with alot of the headlight gear missing, factory AC, front disk, factory gauges, rear defrost with a vinyl top. It has a 350 with a 350 trans and a 10 bolt rear.

Thanks again for the site!

Re: New Guy from Corona Ca.

welcome to Team camaro... if you post your VIN and Cowl Tag info. in our TAG section folks can decode what you have and if its a LA built car, check on top of the gas tank for the 'broadcast sheet' that will outline the options that the car was originally built with.
