I haven't had time, in over a month to mess with it, but I got the shock tower mounts new fuel line, and other goodys. Im going to the to rebuild it slowly. But im going to have my friend weld that stuff in and I can rebuild the front end,except im going with the polyurethane bushing. Im saving for the tires which im getting the bf Goodrich radial tires. Its a slow process.but its kinda fun.

Thumbs up 1969

I saw two 69 at a car show here in San Diego on friday night. The blue one was for sale $20,000. The only drawback was it had a 307 CI. It wasn't perfect but lot of potential. The Synergy gareen was awesome, my picture don't even give it any justice due to the time of day I took the pictures.

Synergy green is the color on the new Camaros and is a much brighter shade of green.

The color of the Camaro in the pic is a stock 1968 color. The color of that car is rallye green and it is a much darker shade


Just a bit of 1st gen history for ya

Actually I talked to the owner and he told me he got the color from the 2011 Camaro. Its a recent paint job, it was late in the afternoon so my camera did not capture the true color. Thanks for the info. I had a 69 Camaro Burnished Brown/Champagne back in 69.

WOW, I guess I was wrong then, but your camera definitely didn't capture the color well at all. Look at this pic compared to the one you took. Definitely not the same looking at all.





and here's a link to the actual color that I thought it was http://paintref.com/graphics/sample/...1969WA3832.jpg and your pic actually looks like

Beautiful 69, I am looking to purchase a 69, but here in California they are pretty pricey. The only good thing is a lot less rust if your doing a restoration.

They are just as pricey in the northeast, except we when spend the same money as you, we get our cars with tons of rust.

If we want a car without any rust (say from your area), we pay a premium on top of the already high prices. I guess I'm lucky that I bought mine over 20 years ago, before the prices went sky high
