First time camaro owner

I was lucky enough to buy my dream car last fall. I've wanted a 69 camaro since I was a little kid. It's a base coupe that had a 350 M20 4 speed. Very nice older restoration on the car. Got a wild hair this winter and ordered a crate 480hp 383. I'm waiting for it to arrive so I can put it back together. Then I will install my sub frame connectors and cal trac traction bars. I've got some other vintage GM stuff, including the 72 cheyenne super that I built starting with a bare frame. It has a 496(555hp) bbc, built th400. I'm 24 btw. Live in the middle of the oil boom in Williston, ND. I've been here almost my whole life. I am sure I will have many questions in the future. thanks
