A big WELCOME Fahad. Glad you are here! We are "proud" that you are on this "great" site and want to learn more about you and your car. I see many things on your car that I would have questions about. Are there many Camaros in Saudi Arabia? You need a lot more pictures...so, please start get them on here. How long have you owned this car? How did you come about getting your car? What is it about Camaros that made you want to own onw? Do you have friends that have Camaros too? That orange car in your first post, who does that belong to? Welcome again.

Just curious Fahad, how is the metal holding up on the car? Is there much rust corrosion? From your pic the body looks very decent, but the vinyl top really looks dried out.  

Welcome to the site. There is some really good info to read here and many people that can help if you have questions.

Hey welcome to the site!

IS your 69 a original export car? What does a first gen 69 like yours sell for over there? (In US dollars please) just curious.

What are your plans for the restoration? Stock? drag? auto cross?

Your English is fairly good and it is easy to understand what your writing. We can fine tune that for you once you get to posting more.  Can't wait to see more on your car. Looks to be an SS... big block or small block? Your avatar shows an RS but your pic shows a standard rear panel. I really like the color. I am partial to dark blue myself.


Just saw the trim tag and it is a -- tag. Interesting what color your going to go with. Hugger orange??

The Vtop is an after market one, originals had body color showing along the rain gutters.
 Did special paint Vtop cars indicate a top color?

The engine is 454 Big block Chevy. (see the attached picture)
The previous owner changed the taillights and removed the reverse lights and  blocked the place. (see the attached picture)

I am planning to paint it by red color with white stripes.

any suggestion for bright red color code?

Red is a great choice!  ::)
52 52 is Garnet Red, which was the brightest factory color red offered that year.
Of corse with -- (special paint) code you could go with any shade of red you  wanted and it would still be considered correct.
