New member from Pittsburgh,Pa.

New member here from Pittsburgh,Pa. New to this site but a member of several other car forums. I decided the resto bug was getting the best of me so I purchase a 1969 Camaro from my brother. The car has been sitting idle for 15 years and needed saved. Its an original 6cyl with 4 speed but now has a 305 which will be replaced with a 350. It needs major work but with the help of all of you I believe I can do this. I already have it stripped down to a shell and it is under way. Thanks in advance and thanks for reading my intro. Bob
