New guy with a 68

Hello fellow enthusiests. After several years of searching for my dream car, I finally got a first gen. She is a 68 in need of love and alot of work. I have been a member on here for a little while, trying to learn as much as possible to make a good decision on a purchase. Got the car home last week and have been striping 8 layers of paint and pounds of bondo, trying to get car down to where I can find what all it needs. So far its looking like rear 1/4's and drop down section of trunk. Car was a show car in the early 90's, complete with a wild fade, molded fender flares, and extreme amounts of bondo/fiberglass from trying to shave every seam and hole.

You guys seem to have a very knowledgable and helpful forum, thanks for all the info that has been collected over the years. Hopfully I can start a build blog in the future, I am in no hurry. If it takes 5 years to do it right, I dont mind. I will quit rambling now.

Blake.

North east, thanks everyone for the welcome. I agree with most of you on 68 being the RIGHT Year, personally my favorite as well.
