Thanks for the warm welcome, guys!
Here's a pic of my car:
And, here's my story (so far)...
My aunt bought the car, brand new in Houston, Texas, back in 1968. After a few years, she then sold it to her dad (my grandfather) and a few years later he sold it to my mom. In 1983, I bought it from my mom. It was my first car. I drove it to high school, and then started "fixin'" it up after I graduated and started college. I had VERY limited funds, and I was mainly concerned with the "looks" of it, rather than the mechanics.
Originally, it was Corvette Bronze with a black vinyl top (I have some pics of this, but I need to scan them in before I can post them). By the time I got my hands on it, the paint was faded to a sickly pink color, and the top was shot, so I removed it, and then had it painted the current maroon color it is right now.
In 1989, the front end was so worn out that I couldn't drive it over 35mph without it shaking and it was wearing the tires out faster than I could afford to replace them. So, I parked it in my parent's garage and bought me another car for a daily driver. My intention was to restore the Camaro, but life got in the way, and it just sat.
In 2001, my wife and I moved to Iowa, but the car stayed in Texas. Fast forward to July of 2013, and we finally secured the resources to have the car hauled to Iowa.
Last summer, I basically just got it running, replaced the gas tank, all of the locks, and did the brakes all around. That was about all I could do before it was time to pack it up for winter.
This spring, I started working on replacing all of the worn out front end bushings, .etc. That's currently where I'm at. I hope to have that completely finished in the next couple of weeks.
I have a new set of tires and wheels (Cragar s/s) that I'll be putting on once I get the suspension finished. I've chosen to go with 15" wheels, rather than the 14" that's currently on it. Also, after seeing what the Corvette Bronze actually looks like by viewing photos of other Camaros on the internet, I think we've decided to take it back to the original color, eventually.
