New 69 from the Land of Lincoln

Hi all, great site here! Been lurking for a while, figured I might as well join. Well heres a lil about me. Im 24 from North Central Illinois. I am a foreman for a Commercial Plumbing Company. Been into cars all my life. Ive had a 68 nova, 95 Z28, and now a 69 camaro. My dad has a 73Z and a 2002 SS. My bro has an all origional 92 heritage Z28 Black with red stripes.

Heres mine, open rearend, muncie 4sp, and a 1970 LT1 370hp shortblock with 1.94 heads, and a quadrajet. I bought the car 2 months ago like it is except for a 1.5"rear/2"front hotchkis lowering kit, Hooker aero chamber mufflers, and new brake lines and master cylinder that I installed. Over time I will replace the whole top end and detail the engine bay. It was owned by my dads best friend whose had it since 76. He died last year and I bought it from his mother. It had been sitting in a small garage for the last 4 years. There was a restoration done on it in 91.

Re: New 69 from the Land of Lincoln

welcome to Team Camaro... I have friends in Libertyville, not too awful far from you. Great looking car too. At times we also get guys in the "Bench" section with plumbing questions, feel free to comment on anything you can help others with too.

Nice ride Scott! I like the wheels. What does the x11 in you Sig mean? I have that on my cowl tag. I see a lot of cars listed as a "x11 car".
