New guy in ms with 68

I just bought a 68 camaro. I left at 3 in the morning for a 4 and a half hour drive to Memphis TN to be the first to get a chance to buy the car. I fell in love with it. I had been looking for a camaro for several months. I have a 71 chevelle as well but it's got to go to please the wife. I've got a few issues with a Muncie 4spd but I'll leave those questions in tech forum. Got to love old cars!

Welcome and good choice on the 68. Where are the pictures? Tell your wife she can have the Chevelle.

Re: New guy in ms with 68

Thanks! Yeah,I told the wife we could complete the chevelle and she could drive the camaro but she wasn't going to have it ha ha. So it's got to go. Also, I don't have the money tree in the back yard! She hates old cars,but I'll try to figure out how to get pics on here too. The car was to good of a deal to pass up so I got it. It's so amazing how the chevelle never got this much attention but I guess the camaro is just that much more recognizable. Funny story, a guy that worked at local auto store said "man that's a fine car and I know my mustangs" Thanks for the warm welcoming guys!

Nice '68,
Use the insert image button, the mountain with sun, and copy/paste the url address.

Re: New guy in ms with 68

Yeah I live not far from u. I'm still working with this pic stuff but I'll get some more pictures first then I'll post later. Thanks to Doug and Everett for the help. I didn't take many pics yet. I took those when I loaded it on the trailer. I just loved how well it looked in the light so I snapped a few real quick. By the time I got home it was dark, so the next day (Saturday) I slept all day then unloaded it. Took it to town for a bit and forgot to take pics oh well maybe this weekend if it's nice out. Thanks again to everyone!

Re: New guy in ms with 68

Guess I may have bought a 68 Camaro just before you as we have similar signatures used to login here.
My wife, two dogs and I drove 900 miles up and back to outside of Huntsville AL, to pick up ours.

Regards,
Bobby
