I paid $8k for it, so not too bad considering what it could turn out to be.

bigdogg-are those the torq-thrust M's in 17"?

I need to change my rims and those were the ones I've been leaning towards.

Hmmm........can't believe I have missed posting in this thread til now.

Here's my 68 SS.........it was complete when I got it with a 327 and 4 speed along with a 4:10 12 bolt posi rear.......now it's riding with a GMPP crate 350, TKO 600 5 speed and a fresh rebuild on the 12 bolt.......I also added a lot of under hood goodies as well as all AutoMeter Phantom II gauges..........

I've also been working on some garage updates to make a nice parking spot for the black 2010 that will be parked next to this one in the not-to-distant future. I'll post some pics of that later.

Mods, please resize large pics..........sorry!!

More pics are available by going to the link in my sig!!

Nice, nice, nice. My Dad had a black 68 SS so these pics really bring back many memories. Those Rally spinner wheels look good, too. The 68 is my favorite 1st gen body because the vent windows were deleted and the grille was the classiest of the bunch. But I would take any of them.

Hello everyone! I just found this site, I don't know how I didn't join sooner. But after seeing a pic off of this site, posted on the corvetteforum recently I started poking around. I WILL BUY a new Camaro when they come out, no question about it. I've loved Camaros since I was young, my mom would drive me to school in her 69 RS. I vowed I would buy 1st Gen when I could afford one, so that's what I did almost 9 years ago.

This is how it looked then





This is how it looks now








After I got the 67, I needed some new school muscle to roll in for everyday stuff. I was "this close" to getting a 02 SS, but for not much more I got this



You'd do the same in my shoes! But a part of me wishes I had the 4th Gen, but when GM announced the re release of the Camaro I said to myself," Self, there's your next car!!!"

Jason

Welcome to the site and congrats on the Z06.

whew..
I am getting the "bug" again...
Just sold my 68 RS last summer, been poking around this site today and am getting the fever to buy a 2010.
I had talked myself out of it because of rising gas prices. (That was the only crazy reason for selling the 68 and to buy a bike)
I am now drivng a new Jetta TDI diesel and love it.
42 mpg on average..

Should I sell the TDI and talk myself into the new camaro?

Wow momma! Them is some very nice Camaros here!

Here's my before,


and my after!



That little guy in the first picture is now almost 21 and now owns my 92 Firebird as of last week! That was a 15 year restoration from the time I bought the car in 1981 until I drove it for the very first time in 1995 and it still wasn't quite finished then.

type in your text in the box, click "advanced" below the text box and you will come up to a new screen w/ all the smilies. Look below the "submit reply" and "preview post" buttons and you will see a "manage attachements" button. Click on that one. You can add up to 5 pictures in that screen. At the top, click browse and select your pic from your hard drive.

If the pix won't post, it might be due to size. They must fit the peramiters. If the file size is too large, you can either downsize the pic and retry or use a photo hosting site like photobucket to post your pictures......just copy and paste the IMG tags.

Hope this helps! We'd love to see your pix!

my '69 camaro alongside my wife's '02 jeep liberty:


better shot:


i purchased the car just about like you see it now. i have made slight improvements in the appearance and have a long way to go. rust has reared its ugly head, so there will be some surgery in her future, unfortunately. it's currently in driver condition. it's a good ten-footer.

rolling down the road...

I own a 69 yellow on white RS/SS bastard 4 speed. Just sold my 68 plain jane because I had no garage space and would rather it be kept than harmed by weather. Hated to see it go but better for the car.
