Pic of My new car from 1979
« on: August 14, 2013, 03:14:46 AM »
I am still trying to get the hang of posting a pic. This is the first time I have ever posted a pic.,and my fello members are seeing for the first time my Camaro as it looked when I brought it home in 1979. Yes, I still have the car and I am restoring it slowly. 12B Nor. X22. I would like Kurt to use it on home page someday. Thanks. P.S. that is my 67 SS Chevelle in background, sold to a buddy back in the day.

That photo is way small due to being resized down to only 12KB - when you post a photo, it can be up to 150KB, which fills the screen nicely.  :-)

I had planned to do my first 69 Z in 1978 same as yours but with white around the nose, back into yellow and orange with blue tips. My 3rd kid was born and went to the stock paint scheme after that. It was a 10-10 car. Wish I could have done it.

That is a great look.  It brings back memories.  I brought mine home about that same time back in '79. I wish I had pix of it from back then.  It was all shackled up with the big and little look as well.  No flames on mine but it did come with some sexy stick-on pin striping -LOL.  Those were the days.

-Mark.

Cool to see a SS Camaro with out the spoilers, I have gotten used to seeing every one of them with them. It seems like anytime one is gone through it is mandatory for the owner to throw them on..

Well...right now hoping and praying I can find someone to do the body-paint work and find the funds to finish the work needed before I lose total interest.
