Welcome, Bobby, glad you joined.
First item on the list, after posting pictures, is to get a Haynes manual for the car. It's better than nothing.

Re: im new here. tell me what you guys are about?

I personally liked the Berlinetta's...I remember my mom had one that had the panel on a swivel in front of the shifter with the radio controls, and had the fancy digital dash...that was a cool car.

I cant remember the last time I have seen one of those...you have found a pretty cool camaro.

This forum is much stronger with 1st gen information, but there is still a 3rd gen forum here, but chaces are you will find more focused info on your car in a 3rd gen specific forum.

Re: im new here. tell me what you guys are about?

Welcome to the show Bobby.When I first joined it was all about me trying to get info but theres more.There are a whole bunch of nice guys and gals here at TC.The info at times can get interesting and the talk can get heated but its all fun and very interesting.I am a Pro-Street guy myself and mainly try and stay in that section.Its kinda hard to see its right below the PT section.The are some very nice rides check them out.Buy the way your car is old enough that it can be turned into a Pro-Street.....

Re: im new here. tell me what you guys are about?

Greetings from Arizona
its all about projects, the fun of bringing that special car back to life.
we'd love to see before pictures, and make sure you take pictures as you tear it apart, really helps when you try to remember how to put it back togather and you have that picture to reference too. age? Well I came home from Vietnam 41 years ago Christmas day! oldest grand daughter is older then you! hahaha Jay
