New guy from Oklahoma

Hello, Ive been lurking around here for about a year and half, the same length of time I have owned my 69 camaro. I bought the car, drove it twice and then started the year and a half long restoration. Building a street strip car, it's time to have some fun. I've been in law enforcement for 28 years, its time to be the chasse instead of the chaser.
The car is going back to the original paint, paint code 63B (champaigne metalic) black vinyl top. I've learned alot from this site and hope to learn alot more. The car is near completion it has escaped from the chassis shop, body shop, in and out of the motor shop and is now at the interior shop.

Re: New guy from Oklahoma

I have a expandable file full of reciepts but they will NEVER be added up! My wife calls mine the $100,000 car. She thinks the truck and trailer should be added in.

Yep I am pretty sure there is a years salary in mine. I have been to Ozark a few times but not with my car. I have raced at Mo-Kan down by Pittsburg a couple times. Mostly here at KCIR in Kansas City though. MY engine is a 565 this is engine #2 after I grenaded the 555 when a rod wanted out really bad. The receipt for the new short block and valves aren't even in the file. I started out building a 12sec. street car that we could take to the track and it got out of hand!
Good luck and let us see some of those pics.
