Checking in from the Mojave Desert

67 Camaro project underway.

Just turning it into a driver car, nothing special on this one. Simplicity is the order of the day.

I have had the car for nearly 20 years and did a bit of work on it over the first ten years.

I built a nice well mannered 350 for it and had the Muncie rebuilt. It came to me with just warning lights in the dash, I made some changes there. I installed a factory tachometer and a console with gauges. Back in 1973 at the age of 16 (yes, I'm that old) I had an authentic Camaro SS350 that I owned and drove for five years. My experience from back then, along with the fact that this Camaro I have now is nothing special beyond a Plain Jane coupe, I did changed a few things around to make it resemble my old SS350 from years ago.

About ten years ago I started taking it down for paint and then got sidetracked on a home remodel. That home remodel took over my life for seven years, so the Camaro (and a few other cars) have sat and sat and sat with very minimal progress ... until now. The remodel is complete and I am quite happy to get back to the cars.

Right now I am into the body work and repaint. The car came to me in a none factory red. I am pretty tired of all the red Camaros I see out there and decided to go to something different. My old Camaro of days gone by was Butternut Yellow, that being a rather dull yellow (no offense meant to anyone out there) I decided to go with a more calm color than red and have chosen a factory issue color, Capri Cream.

The other big thing I am doing it to rewire the entire car with new factory replacement harnesses. Having gone from warning lights to a tach and console gauges I have a lot of home brew wiring in there now and need to get that corrected.

There you go, I'll see you in the forums. I know I'll have questions galore.
