Yet another newbie from S.W. Ontario

Hi everyone
I recently found this place and joined earlier this week.
Fantastic site with tons of info and answers to all my questions .
I'm hoping to meet new friends and share what little knowledge I can .
I bought a restored '68 Z/28 last October from a buddy in Calgary and had it shipped to Ontario. It arrived here 11/11/11
A bit like buying a boat after the seasons over , it made for a long, long winter , but I'm making up for it now .
No protect-o-plate but did come with GM of Canada documentation .
Originally white with black stripes , I think this may be Island Teal , but not sure . I would appreciate your thoughts about that .
Its definately a tricky car to take accurate colour photos of , as it really changes in different light .
Looking forward to more great times on this site !
Jim

Welcome Jim, nice car. Post more pics. I think that is Tripoli Tourquise, but I could be wrong. Check these 2 places as reference.

The Fleetwood Country Cruize 2012...only the biggest and best classic car/truck show that Canada offers, eh? On the Sat. last year 5300 cars.

It's a three day vintage meet, starting on June 1st to the 3rd,just on the outskirts of London, ON. On Sat., Paul Revere and The Raiders will be there to play, with a sit down banquet in a tent holding 2500! Frankie Vallie is on Fri...last year it was the Beach Boys....and was a sell out...as was the banquet. It will the same this year.

It's worth the trip to see Steve's (the land owner) vintage Caddies...some, one of a kind.

I went just to see Lighthouse on the Sat last year....but going for all three days this year.

With "bells on", Tom, I'll be there.

Been doing some write ups for some of the neighbouring American car clubs up this way for Steve... hope to have more Yanks in attendence this year, as many don't know about it and what the show offers, eh? There was a great report on the show, and Steve in one of the "Haggerty" mags this year...you get a glimpse of some of his prizes in that chateau-like building that houses his beauties.

Look for the BN vert, with the 8 track.
