NewGuy checking in......

Just signed up.......

I`m in Texas
I don`t have any real cool Camaros at the moment (I`ve got a 97..... ), but I`ve had some good ones over the years. I had a 68 SS350 clone and replaced that with a real deal 68 SS396 4 speed. I had to sell it to raise a down payment for my home a few years ago.....oh well.

Re: FNG checking in......

Hey....welcome to the site. I think most of us here have "been there, done that". Back in the 70's and 80's, I bought/sold two 1st gen convertibles, one a 68 big block, the other a 67 small block, and a 68 big block 4 speed coupe w/air. Now I just have a 350 4 speed. We all make those hindsite mistakes but we all had growing families and life's priorities. One day you'll have another, and when you do, enjoy it every chance you get!! Jim

Re: NewGuy checking in......

Cool Re: NewGuy checking in......

Welcome from Cali..

Muscle cars were loud, proud, and in your face, and did not pretend to be anything else.
