From one F body to another!

Well it looks like I have a new place to browse! I have always loved classic cars but never thought I would be in the position to have one. In high school (I'm 29 now) I had a 1994 firebird formula that I think I worked on more than I drove. I loved that car because it taught me a lot about auto repair. I was always on ls1tech reading the lt1 section and trying to find ways to mod the car on a budget. I ended up blowing the motor up and rebuilding it to a decently healthy 383 and drove it for a while but ended up selling the car. I didn't regret getting rid of the car because I wasn't too fond of the body style but I really regretted not having something to tinker with.

A few weeks ago I ran into an old coworker that I was worked with at a parts store during high school. He had a 1968 camaro that he had bought from a friend and rarely drove it. I was in love with that car! I always joked with him about trading him cars and was infatuated with that car. I ran into him a few week ago and asked him about his car and he told me that he had debated selling it and would call me with a price when he made his mind up. Last week I purchased the car and am thrilled to have something to mess with again! It is an SS clone with a mildly built 355, th350 trans and 3.73 10 bolt rear, all rebuilt or new within 4000 miles. Interior is in really good shape! I am like a kid in a candy store!

I tried posting pics but imgur links aren't allowed because of post count and I cant figure out the whole resizing and attaching deal!

Re: From one F body to another!

Welcome to the site from a fellow Hoosier! I can't see your pictures, but congratulations on getting your dream car. Enjoy it!

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