Welcoming myself :-)

Hi guys,

I just got my first 68 chevy camaro 350 rs/ss, 4 speed manual, front disc, rear drum /not planning on switching to disc/.

I'd post a picture but have a feeling I ran out of space for pics as I've two posts requesting help with the vacuum headlight doors and the front rotors :-) - you guessed it right, had to use the space for pics there :-)

I was a member of the corvette forum for awhile under vickvette. Sold my 50th anniv. corvette and got a commuter car. Well, I survived only 2 weeks. It's a boring car without any personality. I always wanted a 1st gen camaro and early january I got one. For sure the car requires lots of work and as we all know, it takes 3 second to unscrew a bolt, but 2 hours to put it back :-)

Thanks to classic industries in huntington beach I'm able to get all the parts, but it's a hell of a ride when you realize it's not that easy to replace a booster with the master cylinder. Okay, that part is easy, just when the rear brakes are not getting the brake fluid, it's just one mystery after another. Or you get the 4 piston camaro OEM brake calipers and realize your car has the 4 piston firebird calipers. They are smaller and clear the front 14inch wheels. The camaro calipers don't clear it, they need min. 15 inch wheel.

This car for sure is taking me for a ride :-) My savings acct and the car are the biggest enemies Haha

Whoever reads this, thank you for taking your time reading all the nonsense I write Haha It all makes sense to me... Cheers

Hey welcome aboard Vick
If you're out of space for photos, most guys/gals here run a free photo hosting account (for example, photobucket), which allows you to create albums, upload and organise your photos, and then post the direct link (url) to the image, using the [img]url[/img] HTML code. No limit then on storage space, but the mods prefer image size limited to 800x600, as there may still be folks out there on dial-up accounts.
