New 1969 396 SS owner

Hello all,

I joined this site a few months ago and am finally getting around to spending some time on it. I recently bought a 1969 396SS X66 coded Camaro that is in need of some love. It's not terrible, I can drive it, but it definitely needs love. The last owner did not show it the appreciation that it needed so I am hoping to remedy that. Up to this point, I am not really sure how I want to proceed; I am definitely a rookie. I don't have the $$ to do it all at once, so the plan is to do a little at a time while still driving it and having fun. I am hoping that the knowledge and experience provided in this forum will help me through. Anyway, look forward to picking your brains and learning from you.

Dave

Welcome Dave. Lots of smart guys on this site, Use the search function, as most of what you want to ask already has been, and can be found there. Much of which if you tackle on your own, will help greatly with the money issue, plus it's very satisfying to do-it-yourself!

Re: New 1969 396 SS owner

Dave,
Welcome to the site! Post up some pics or send them to me so I can post 'em.
I'm down here by Ft Lewis/McChord, just tore my 68 Vert apart.

I speak and build BBCs. I run my 70 Elky as much as possible at Bremerton and Pacific drag strips. There are a few extra things lying about here if you have needs. There is also a network of guys all up and down I-5 to help with parts shipments from my Chevelle/Elky & etc racing buds.

Re: New 1969 396 SS owner

Thanks for all the welcomes everyone! I am already spending hours on this site and am learning quite a bit. I will post some pictures in the near future, but my Camaro is nowhere near the quality of some of the cars I see on here...yet! Digging into this car is like pulling a loose thread but I gotta stay focussed!

George, it is good to know that you are just down the freeway a bit. I will definitely need your recommendations when it comes to body/paint and internal engine work.

Dave
