Bought my 69 Camaro dream car (when I am done with it anyway) a few weeks ago and have been snooping around this forum for a while. It has helped me out big time throughout the whole process, so thanks.
I have never owned a muscle car, but i grew up around them. I have little experience doing body work or building out motors, but I am going to learn. This car was purchased to be a family heirloom and will go to my sons when I die.
Back to the car... I ended up buying a red (original color is burgundy) 69 SS w/a non-original 350 motor and a black vinyl top. I believe it to be a true SS, but you know how that goes. It does have the markers for an SS; original dual fuel lines, numbers matching M20, speedo cable to the right of the steering column, front disc brakes and 12 bolt rear end.
It has some rust issues and has had some panels replaced. The paint is crap. I plan on disassembling and media blasting the car and then doing the body work. I am scared. I ain't going to lie to you.
Anyway, I look forward to chatting with fellow Camaro freaks.
Oh... and I already pulled a newbie and put the wrong year of my car in the title. Getting off to a great start.
