New CRG poster 69 SS396 L34 X66
« on: January 30, 2014, 07:11:54 PM »
I've been pretty active on Team Camaro, but now that I'm posting on CRG as well I guess I better introduce myself/ my Camaro.
I'm in the middle of a long rotisserie resto.... I've had it since '82, but it was around '08 that I pulled it in the garage and started to really tear it down to correct a multitude of '80s body work sins... Here are some specs and a couple pics. Feel free to ask questions.

Not another Hugger car!!!!  ;D   Im just joking..   ;D  Great car and you will learn a lot around these parts.  Just my 2 cents is I would go "day 2" with that car.  You already have the mags & traction bars which is a great start!  Love the look.  :thumbsup:

Thanks gents! More than likely it'll be a day 2 car. I was going to go with my original wheels, but I think I'd miss my slotted mags. The M/T valve covers are going to stay.
Gary, I saw your "ultimate expression post." I was cracking up. I love it. I'd already be moved, but I'm a slave to the job... They think I like paying for two houses I guess lol. I figure I'll be in Mich within a couple of months hopefully. Thanks for lighting a fire under my backside to start posting on CRG instead of just reading.

Nothing for you to drool over. Other than yours being an SS/RS, I think ours are twins right down to the M/T valve covers!
