Man can I understand the 26 year thing as we have a similar situation and should be finished this year. Ours been apart since 1979!
Great looking car and congratulations. :)

Chick, some may call it gloating ,I call it sharing. Love to see some pics on the other bowties in you collection. Pretty sure everybody feels the same. I enjoy looking at others cars here ,in any stage. Really nice seeing his Ash Gold 68 on display.

Thanks all!  Really appreciate the comments.  Means a ton coming from guys who love Camaros and know them inside out. The process of getting the car to this point was long, sometimes frustrating, but always enjoyable as I look back at it.  The forum is/was a huge a huge part of getting me motivated to finally complete it in a manner which respected the car.  The help, advice, expertise, and camaraderie you offered was/is invaluable.  I'm a rookie, but love cars, and any solid help I can offer anyone on the forum I will try to offer. Thanks again!  Ed

Wonderful!!
By far my favorite color combo on a 68. Everything looks great, good for you!
I get the same comments about the color and also find it strange because it was so popular back then.
