I am in the infancy of looking for a Camaro to restore, preferably a 67. I had an 79 Z-28 when I was in the Marines, but as luck would have it, a "good friend" got trashed and wrecked it on me! I'm not sure I completely know what I'm getting myself into, but I'm up for a challange. Any advice would be very welcome!

Welcome to the Club! Always glad to read of another person joining.

First rule: Make sure you have unlimited funds.
Second rule: Be prepared to spend way more time working/driving on the car more than others allow, i.e., wife/girlfriend come to mind.
Third rule: See the First rule.
Fourth rule: Make a chiropactor appointment every week - this will exercise the jaw better to relieve the smile from driving.

I'm in North Haledon, Passaic County. Like I said, still in the infancy, but I think as this is my first endevor into this, full restoration might be a little ambitious. My dream is a 67, but anything within 67 - 77 would be acceptable.

Another Jerseyian welcoming you to the BESTcamaro site on the net. The wealth of wisdom and knowledge of those on this site is almost unbelievable. As you are in the early stages of what you will find to be an addiction.........Ask every question (Or use the search function) and it'll be answered. Take your time and learn as much as you can and good luck on your quest to bring another camaro to its glory.

Checked your profile.......That is a sweet 67 (wing windows rule...hehehe) is it your car?

Tim - Welcome! This site is a great source of information and plenty of NJer's here too. Just perpare yourself when buying a car 38+ years old ... As indecated above, it WILL:

1.) cost more then you ever expected
2.) take longer to complete then you ever expected
3.) be more work then you ever exepected
4.) repeat steps number 1 and 2 above
5.) be more fun that you ever expected
6.) repeat step 1 again

Enjoy! :beers:

welcome tim......sure we can't sway you to the 69 side if the fence.... although we are on opposite ends of the state, it seems that we nj'ers are getting to be a large group. i'm looking forward to next winters get together since i missed this years. you have found with out a doubt one of the top camaro sites on the web and i'd like to think that the CRG site is really just an extension of this site since most posters are on both sites. good luck with your search and if i can help down here......hit me up
