Thumbs up Pulled The Trigger.

Well, I did it. I bought my first camaro ('68) and as of right now it is in an enclosed trailer on its way to me. I have searched long and hard and finally found "the one". Originally an I6 car. the second owner dropped a 350 in it and still has the original interior, a newly refreshed TH350 auto. trans. and a 10 bolt rear (I would assume). It has been garage kept and the 10 year old paint still looks brand new. I will post pics. as soon as she gets here. It isn't a numbers matching car, but the mods. I want to do would have pretty much blown that out of the water any way.

Enjoy it! Once you start the mods, it will likely never stop. There's always a little thing here or there, then the "well, I might as well take care of X, while I'm here". But you'll love it! Do yourself a favor and buy your significant other flowers now.

Re: Pulled The Trigger.

Congrats on the new buy. and correct year.
Keep a logbook of things bought, mods made, as we tend to forget as we get older.

Congrats, What steps did you take to buy long distance? Did you go out to see the car? Kinda scary buying without seeing it in person, I’m thinking of hiring Appraiser if it’s out of state.
