Hello from Down Under

Hi,

My name is Matthew, I have just joined the forum today. I live in Melbourne, Australia. I own a 1968 Camaro RS which I hope to restore over the next few years. I also own a 1965 Dodge Phoenix (a 4-door version of the Plymouth Fury) which is the daily driver, and a 1978 Holden Premier. In addition to classic cars, I am also interested in pinball & arcade machines.

Anyway, here are some pics of my cars:

Cool Re: Hello from Down Under

Welcome to Team CAMARO

Hopefully you're staying 'High & Dry'

Nice collection of cars!
Love the HZ!
Drop a 'Statesman' V8 in and have a lot of fun
Hmmmm - wonder how close the subframe of the HZ is to the 68 Camaro - just sayin'

Think you'll like the site, and even find a few more Aussies and Kiwi's on here to trade local parts info with!
