Thumbs up Newbie/Oldie back to my roots...

Hey there. My name is Bob. Just got myself another old Camaro, 67 to be exact. Last Camaro was a daily driver mid 11 second 2000 SS I sold a few years ago. Last OLDer Camaro was 20 years ago...an 82 Z28.

I did have a few Camaros before that though, lol (in no particular order):
1968 w/327 and PG (column shift)
1969 w/307 and PG (column shift)
1973 w/350 T-350
1974 Z-28 4 speed (nitrous)
1975 Type LT 350/T-350
77-1/2 Z28 406/T-400 (nitrous)
1978 Rally Sport 305/T-350
1985 IROC 305/AT
and the 82 Z mentioned above....and probably a few dozen other toys...Novas, V8 Vega wagon, Chevelles, Mustangs, El Caminos, etc, etc...holy crap, to have them all back these days, I'd be rich...lol.

Anyway, I just picked up a 67 (EX 6 cylinder car), now with a 327/4barrel and PG trans., and who knows what rearend...open 10 bolt is all I know.

Previous owner had it 12 years and in that time he replaced complete floorpans, rebuilt front and rear suspensions, converting to multi-leaf, re-did entire interior, swapped in the 327/PG combo out of a 67 Impala, he bolted on some longtube headers and a stainless 2 into 1 Flowmaster into two tailpipe stock style exhaust. I bought it mainly because I have back issues that prevent me from rolling around on the ground like the "old days" and doing all that mechanical work myself. It's a light blue-ish/silver color, but looks like it needs 1/4's sometime down the road. It also has a 600w stereo with a subwoofer in the trunk, lol. Not something I'd do, but sounds pretty darn good.

Bought it and drove it 85 miles home on the stock little 14" steel wheels & tires...which was an adventure, LOL.

Still un-decided on what to do under the hood. Leave it be? Build another 406? blah, blah, blah...who knows.

I'm also still un-decided on what to do to exterior. I got a brand new rear spoiler with it, but everybody puts a spoiler and a cowl induction hood on these, and I actually think it's pretty awesome to have a car that looks like it's a daily driver, a little different than most, with some character and patina...

I bolted on the Welds the 2nd day I had it. I may be getting old, but I ain't growing up!

sorry for the long first post....

Look forward to re-learning some stuff, learning some stuff, and hopefully sharing some stuff while I am here.

Anyway, here's a few pics:
