New guy

Happy to join the forum. Just retired and can finally give my 1968 the love it deserves. Got it in high school 40 years ago and has always been driven. Parents kept care and drove it when I was gone. 28 years United States Navy plus 3 airlines.
So lots of time sitting at airports. Tripoli Turquoise/black, 327, 2 speed powerglide with horseshoe(?) console shifter, walnut trim, houndstooth inserts, PS, PB, AC.
No crashes. Could use paint and suspension rubber to tighten up the steering.

Glad to be part of the group! Max

Re: New guy

Thanks for serving! Good to have a hobby when you retire. Are you keeping it bone stock or upgrading?

Re: New guy

Your car sounds identical to the one owned by a young lady in Biloxi MS in the '68-'70 time frame... Any chance your car came from that area?

Corvettes (5), Nomads (2), El Camino, etc

Oh no... a sailor (just a friendly rib from a Jarhead). Welcome to the site, Kris! Sounds like a great car. Got any pictures?

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
