New to Camaro and this site.

Kids are out of college and I got a ton of free time. I just got a rust free 68 convertible that has been sitting for 18 years. It has some problems and I found this site doing some research. I'm looking forward to that first test drive!

Thank you. The list isn't to bad. Electrical issues are the main problem. I have no power to the fuse for dash lights (new headlight switch installed). No gauges work or dash/console lights. Turn signals don't blink, just light up. Someone installed the console gauges along the way and they are for show at the moment. Gas, amp and temp don't move just the mechanical oil pressure works.

It will need a new top later but that can wait. A good brake job and she will be ready to go to the muffler shop. Ill post more pics along the way.
