Hi everyone

Just joined this forum. A little about me....When I was in my youth I was the proud owner of a 69 SS 350 Camaro. Bought this awesome car when I was a senior in high school with the help of my parents. Drove it through my college years and after until I stored it at my folks house. In 1980 I got married and sold the 69 Camaro as I need cash. Like many of us I wish I still had that car! Fast forward to 2014.....I bought a 1967 Camaro RS. My wife, of 35 years mind you, supported the decision to finally get a Camaro that I have wanted for years. It is in nice shape, repainted a few years back but never a frame off restore. Front grille has been replaced. This car sat unmolested for years in a collectors controlled environment garage and shows only a little rust on the undercarriage. Original interior!
327/210 hp is not original based on VIN and engine decode....it is actually a 68 327 that has a little hotter cam....but runs very nice. Best of my knowledge in talking to last owner (20 plus years) it was replaced right before he got the car. Nonetheless, I have a nice 67 RS that needs some electrical work and suspension work. Look forward to asking questions and picking your brains.

Re: New member

Thanks guys!
Wife is so supportive. Actually think she will be drivin' this ride to local cruise nights especially when we head out to the mega shows once a month in summer. I have a 69 chevelle SS 396 that is a bit more hp than she wants to drive.

Oh by the way she did get the better deal....I got the Camaro and she got a new kitten!
