'67 camaro owner new to forum.
« on: June 08, 2006, 04:24:14 PM »
Hi everyone.

I am new to this forum and just introducing myself.

I am the 2nd owner of my '67 camaro.  My step father special ordered the car in 1967, and I worked for him to earn the car.
I have owned it from 1978 to now.  It is a 275hp 327 4speed car, nantucket blue with black interior with very few options. I restored the car in 1987.  My step dad made me sign a contract when I bought the car that I would keep it original.  I was pissed back then (I was 15 when I finally had it paid for) but I am glad now as I hope this car will keep getting more valuable.  There seems to be more interest it this car I have allways considered plain jane.  Of coarse I street raced it in high school, and blew a big hole in the bottom of the original transmission that I had just spent a lot of money having rebuilt.

I live in northern Utah, and have drove it all year long for the past 3 years because I am swaping drive train, dash board, etc. in my daily driver ('67 elcamino) with parts from a '98 Z-28. I planned on only taking 3 or 4 months to do it, so I did'nt think I would have to drive my camaro in the winter.  Thankfully I am getting close so I should'nt have to drive through this next winter.

So, I am planning on doing a restoration on my camaro after the camino is done.  I am going to start to round up some correct parts like the transmission, carb, etc. that have been replaced over the years of use.  So I hope to use this web site to help me with all of the questions I will have, and to help anyone with the limited knowlege I have.

Bruce
