New to TC!

Hey to all TC people!
Im new here but have owned 3 camaro's going back to 1998 at 13 years old with my first! It was a 1975 type LT. My next was in high school with a hugger orange with white stripes 68 coupe 327 auto which i sold (young and dumb) and dreamed for 10 years to get another!
Then one day on craigslist not 5 miles from my house was a red 68 355 four speed camaro for sale and the rest was history! I have since then redone all sheet metal and wheels/tires new paint and rubber but still not done. But for now i show it at local shows with the wife and love it.

Thanks for the site and hope to learn alot more about camaro's on here

Sorry for the bad pic

Welcome, Matthew.
Correct year as John states.
I find the air cleaner works better 'on the engine than on the ground.'

Welcome to TC, Matt...and yep, you got the Cam Virus, and looks like you've had it for some time.

As per your comment about "messing up" you will be very first to have done this...NOT!

I still got to do the inside of the car to make it look better and I wanted to put in a different 355 that my dad has with a big cam but I dont know if it will work do to the gears in my rear end which I dont have a clue what they are??

I also want to redo the front frame and so on and so on....
