Hi from Australia

I imagine there is a few Aussies already on here so Im nothing new. What is new to me is that I have just bought my 1st ever Camaro, a 2 owner 68RS.

Its somewhat different to my 33 and 36 Ford coupes and Harleys so it should be quite the learning curve so please bare with any obvious questions - in return I promise to use the search function before posting any

Re: Hi from Australia

Welcome Pete, you've come to the right place for all things first-gen. Nice looking car - is that (mostly) original paint? Looks like a California car from the front plate; What's the story, where's the car from and did you get any history on previous owners?

1969 04A Van Nuys-built Z/28. Cortez Silver with dark blue interior and VE3. Sold Clippinger Chevrolet. Raced at Lions in LA.

Re: Hi from Australia

Welcome, m8 from another former colony.

As mentioned, a few Aussies, even a Pommie or two in the bunch, eh?

Nice ride! Must be a story here?

Re: Hi from Australia

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. Car is a two owner vehicle based on the description provided by the seller. Was a Cali car most of its life then went to Az. Have all the original books and a lot of receiepts. Apparently original paint except for one rear 1/4 that was painted along the way so can only assume accident damage of some sort.

Was kind of a spur of the moment buy. Im not a body work kinda guy so it was appealing from that perspective as it looks to be really straight and rust free Interior is a little ratty which one would expect after 112K mikes but seeing how original it all is my plan is to keep it unrestored, service and repair what needs to be done and drive it. The drivers seat cover is toast so would love to find an OEM one of the same colour and vintage that isnt ripped.
