New guy from Mass

Well I acquired a 68 camaro off eBay... And really got myself into a jam... Car needed everything... Fenders, floors and quarters... Sent to body shop that did restoration work... After 8 month the owner calls me up and tells me he can't finish it... All bodywork was done and car was in primer... Just needed to be blocked sprayed and blocked then to paint... Well made an agreement with the owner to use his shop brought my own body techs and in 3 days the car was blocked masked jammed and painted... On the last day.. Just finished painting dash and inside trim... I drop my buddies off.. And stop to pick up a pack of cigarettes and as I'm walking to my car I get hit by a car... Thought I was alright until I try to stand and then notice I can't move my right leg... Ambulance comes and off the hospital I go... News is ruptured quad tendon... They do emergency surgery and reattach and spend 7 days in hospital...day I get out have car towed to storage garage... So there it will sit for another 7-8 month until I can walk again...

This will be my third 1 gen camaro... I must admit my first two were turn key...this one was rough...

Looking forward to learning as much as I can from you guys... And always welcome opinions ...

Thanks

Re: New guy from Mass

Welcome,

This site has a lot of very knowledgeable members. They have been a great help to me so far. I am new to MA and this site as well. You can find a lot of info using the search feature. I have had my Camaro for 10 years. I haven't worked on it for 9 years until a few months ago when I got going on it again. This site has been a great help to me and I am sure it will be to you also.

Matt

Welcome to TC, mystery newbie from MA. Which part of the state are you in? Some of us like to meet up at the local events.
