Thanks. Always wanted the car I have now. Owned Corvettes for many many years. Sold the '57 after 38 years. Did a '68 Nova BB clone some years back. Sold it.

Re: new member

Welcome to TEAM CAMARO! It took four tri-fives, five classic Corvettes, three Chevelle SS's, and one Nova to finally realize the '68 Camaro most clearly satisfies my desire to own a Chevrolet classic.

Both optimists and pessimists contribute to society. The optimist invents the automobile, the pessimist seat belts, head rests, disc brakes, and air bags.

Nice car, right year and right color!

Do you have a picture of it from the side? I have some steel wheels and dog-dish caps like yours and have been debating whether or not to use them. I like the way they look on your car!

Got to agree with everything Kev mentioned (yr&col)...and welcome to the TC site, eh?

Car looks unmolested, and in great shape!

Re: new member

Thanks for the warm welcome guys.

Raced the Vette way back when on the street. It sat for years while I played with Harleys. Sold the bikes and dusted off the Vette.
Been running it at the Pure Stock Drags for about 9 years. Best ET was 13.16/ 104mph. 283/ 270hp.
Now taking the Camaro. It's in the 12's.



The Nova was an 18k mile 6 auto. I put a crate LS6 in and threw on some 077 heads. Most born with paint. Nice nice born with interior. Loved that car but I couldn't have run it at the PSMCDR. I put it on ebay and a guy from Georgia hit the BIN and never looked at the car. He sent a truck and away it went.
