Moving Day
« on: May 04, 2014, 01:51:41 AM »
A huge day for me. After 28 yrs of sitting in one place with nothing but a car cover on it My Camaro has moved to the concrete pad where I will undertake the restoration of 124379N640310. Getting a car with no power or brakes up on a trailer was a huge undertaking.wife was helping  with come along and chains pulling car onto trailer.Got hit by a car while walking in WallyWorld (Walmart) parking lot in 07 ,heart attack in 13 and almost got ran over by my own Camaro today! Going to get 4 new jack stands and get it up on them to start .Im sure I need new trunk panel ,will find out tomorrow how much more of floor pan will need replace. This will be the first time I have been underneath since about 1986 when I pulled gas tank cause a guy at the stoplight said "man your gas tank is hanging down on one side". Started taking pics today ,still don't know how to post pics but will learn someday. I am stoked . Standing in the garage today Looking at the back seat of my Camaro. Talk about memories!  Well I just had to tell somebody.will need lots of advice and support,a ton of cash ,and a lot of busted knuckles,and a considerable amount of luck.

X2, these mishaps come in threes, so congratulations, you've survived all of 'em. Now you're safe, you can get stuck into that restoration!
Seriously, good luck and hope the car has not suffered from the years laid up. Post plenty of pics!
