Just joined.....

Hi all,
Just joined the Team Camaro community. I was looking for a forum with good info and people who know what they're talking about when it comes to 1st gen Camaros and it looks like I found the right place. I'm a newbie when it comes to Camaro knowledge, etc, but I'll try and contribute when possible. What made me join was a 1968 Camaro with a 327. It was originally restored sometime during the late 90's after which my brother purchased it about 5 years ago. The poor girl sat in his garage pretty much since he got it and I said enough is enough. I've now taken over and though the Camaro is in fairly good running shape I'd like to make a few upgrades. That's why I joined Team Camaro. Right now the project I'm going to undertake is converting the drum brakes to discs as well as a manual steering to power steering conversion. Though there are MANY more ideas I have for this car, that's where I want to start. I want thank everyone in advance for any help I might recieve and look forward to being part of the Team.

Re: Just joined.....

My car has almost that must dust on it from sitting in the garage from Nov to June of every year. That's sad. I've had a car cover for it for years but never put it on because i keep thinking that I'll drive it more. Oh well. Welcome. Let's see her cleaned up!

Re: Just joined.....

Okay guys, took a couple weeks to get around to getting the pics of the car. Not sure if this in the right forum, but considering I joined a couple weeks you guys'll have to forgive Just picked up the 15" wheels, (no center caps yet ) so I can next do a drum to disc brake conversion. As you can see, a huge difference in the look of the car from the first pic I posted, with just a little TLC.
