New member with 68 coupe

Hi all!


I just purchased a 68 RS clone and am working on getting it on the road again. It was rode hard and put away wet, so I have some work ahead of me.


I am a moderator over at Steve's Nova Site, and recently sold my 64 Nova SS. I rebuilt that pretty much top to bottom, and did all the work on that aside from machining the engine block. I had a 68 Firebird when I was in college, so I thought I'd try a first-gen F-body again.


I'm in the lakes region of NH, near lake Winnipesaukee. Looking forward to getting on the road and doing some serious cruising!

Re: New member with 68 coupe

Looks like I gotta get up to 10 posts before I can include images here, but I uploaded some pictures to an album of the car when the car was delivered, before I did anything to it. I think you can see those if you look at my profile page.

Welcome pat. You are correct about putting ten posts up before you can include image tags or url links in posts.

Nice ride. Look forward to your projects list and build thread.

Nice color! But I might be a little biased...

Re: New member with 68 coupe

Thanks everyone! Hoping to have it on the road soon...


The cassette player will stay, it sounds awful, but it is one designed to fit in the dash. Thankfully someone ponied up for that instead of getting the hacksaw out to do the usual stereo install in these.


For the record...the cassette that was in the player was Beethoven. The tape case in the backseat had some Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen. All in the landfill now...
