New guy WY

Hello from Cody WY.
Just got home today from a 2400 mile round trip to NM to pick up my newly aquired 69 RS/SS Camaro (Ebay).
It was originally a car from the CA desert, so very little to no rust in it. Just a good solid project car, less engine and trans (auto). As far as I can tell it only has 47K original miles. Looking at the brake/gas pedals, I would almost have to agree, as they look original, with very little wear.
I'm still trying to decipher the VIN on it. It appears to be originally a Fathom Green w/ white seats and black door panels.
The VIN appears like this:
ST 69 12437 VN247838 BDY
TR 727 79 E PNT
0(?)1D U462
From what I looked up the U46 is the Vigilite fiber optic system, but I can't figure out what the 2 after it means.
Not really sure how I want to build it yet. I would love to put a Roadster Shop chassis under it and do the Pro Touring thing, but my budget may dictate otherwise. I will most definitely be going with an LS engine though.

Re: New guy WY

Sounds like a great find. I did a 1300 mile round trip for a Camaro once, 2400 ouch. Great choice going with LS.
