New to Camaro....From Calif

After admiring 1st gen camaros for years I finally got one.
It's mostly stock except zz385 crate motor, power disc brakes, power steering and some free stuff under the seats that I found (some change, a cheap ring and misc stuff)

Trans was just rebuilt 2 weeks ago (turbo 350) although I wish the prev owner would've went with a 700R4. It has a 12 bolt rear end but nothing else too special. For now....

It's a blast to drive and the whole family loves it !!!

My plan is to make it my daily driver.
Redo interior, add A/C , replace all rubber, and just fixing-cleaning-tightening the little things.

Hey Ken,

Recommend "frame connectors" as your first improvement, or better known as a BIG Bang Improvement for little buck!
