New guy from Minnesota

Well my name says it all---I can't seem to stay away from classic cars. I dabble in mostly GM classics, although I do have Toyota off road vehicles for fishing, etc

I have done complete frame off restorations on 6 vehicles:

1961 MGA Roadster--Wifes car--sold it
1971 Chevy Shortbox Big Block Super Cheyenne--then sold it
1971 Chevy Shortbox pro street 550HP--then sold it
1985 Toyota BJ74 landcruiser diesel--then sold it
1970 Toyota FJ40--play truck--Kept
1971 Camaro Z28--Original 60K documented miles--sold it

I have been a member of NastyZ28 and IH8MUD for a few years (3000+ posts), and sold my 71Z28 a couple years.

Got the bug again, and my wife wanted a driver 1969 RS Camaro--gotta love that! She wants Fuel Injection /Auto (So LS Motor/4L60) AC, RS. Everything I have had was either a manual, or a hot rod.

So last week I picked up a 69 RS/SS X11 code car. No motor or trans, so it will just get badged SS. Fathom Green original paint, Hockey stripe but a rust bucket. Needs everything. Last licensed in 1980.

So off I go!!! You will probably see a lot of me here. Guys at NastyZ28 referred me here.. I will start a thread on my journey soon.

Re: New guy from Minnesota

Little change of plans--still starting a build, just not the one mentioned above. That went to a professional shop.

I will be starting a different 69. I will start a thread in the restoration forum soon.
