68 Camaro in CO

Hey guys, I just decided to buy the car of my dreams and jump into the muscle car scene with a 68 Camaro. It currently has a 396 with a muncie 4 spd. It is claimed to be a RS/SS though it is tough to tell for obvious reasons. It has power drum brakes a 12 bolt rear with 3.73's. The original color was British Racing Green with gold deluxe interior. I'm planning on going with the original exterior but cannot live with the gold interior, not a 70s pimp. I just put a 2.5" cowl hood on and have already used the infamous 'search' button on a few questions I had about interior kits, so thank you to those before me. Here are a few pics:http://m998.photobucket.com/albumvie...OwuKBDbi9nw%3D
as I am new, I'm having a tough time being able to just insert normal pics

I look forward to growing with you guys and being able to share with you.

Re: 68 Camaro in CO

Welcome! Another Denver 68. Which part of town are you in? You've picked the right site when it comes to 1st gen Camaro information. Regarding inserting pictures. The simplest way is to get an free flicker or photo bucket account, upload pictures to there. Once the picture has been uploaded and is accessible via the net, you then link the picture in your posts by clicking the yellow/mountain icon located on top of the message box and pasting the full URL/link to the picture.

Well you can't go wrong with a 68 1st Gen Camaro. That car looks great. I want mines in primer black too, coming soon. Look forward to seeing more of that Camaro.

I'm located in Thornton, CO. As far as the site is concerned there seems to be WAY more info on 1st gens here then on the 'other' forum I joined.

Re: 68 Camaro in CO

Cool, I'm in DTC. I was a member on 3-4 different forums before I came here. Yes, this site hands down has the best first gen info...

Re: 68 Camaro in CO

I'm about to go to the DMV and do a title history check on the vehicle tomorrow, do you guys think it is worthwhile to do so and find out the titling history of the vehicle and prior owners? It only costs $2.20, so if I get nothing I'm only out $2.

Re: 68 Camaro in CO

Best money you'll ever spend, especially if you get lucky and hit the jackpot like I did. Did the same thing a while ago and between the $2 in KY and $1 in NC, I hit the jackpot. I was able to trace all 10 owners of my car (she's been around). With today's internet I was able to locate contact info for the first owner and called her... Below is the entire thread...

Re: 68 Camaro in CO

That's a shame that some states don't keep all the records... The topic of tracing back your car has come up a several times over the last couple of years here on TC. Unfortunately most traces end with "so and so state only keeps records back to xx"

Re: 68 Camaro in CO

I'm in Centennial for the time being and am also restoring a 68.

Nothing much yet, but I started an album to record the progress.
