New too the site and to US Muscle cars.............


Been modding cars since 10 years ago when i was 17 but late jappo cars, now have a S6 Rx7, will piss this off to get a rolling 69 Camaro with limited knowledge and Im way out of my league.


My outlook changed when my mate took me to SUMMERNATS, it blew my mind away standing next to these cars which literally made the ground shake and the detail and effort put in these cars were amazing not bolt on stuff im use too but ground up builds and 800hp+ monsters.

will be asking alot of rookie questions, apologise in advance

To echo Sir Geo's welcome (dont forget to check his project build out,,,its something else), welcome aboard CamaroIwant. Am sure you had a great time and enjoyed your earlier time, work, and mods on cars from the orient, but we are glad you have "seeeeeeen the light" and become a believer in true muscle.

Spread the word with your mates that "cubes rule" and "there aint no substitute for cubes". Also dont hesitate to check out sites like camaros.net and camaros.org for almost everything you wanted to know (if you havent found already).

And if you have not seen and felt the ultimate in ground shake yet, head out to WSID and see top fuelers run. 8,000 HP earthquakes....

And dont apologise for asking questions...the only silly question is the one that does not get asked...

Cheers and enjoy.

I cant get my friends away from the Autosalon to the NATS, but there lost.
I'll say it again it was summernats that open my eyes and my ears and the air being pulled out of my lungs from the crazy motors.

Planning on getting a Camaro by the end of the year bit scared as im not as skilled as you guys were i can change panels and chassis and the like, sure i can bolt exhaust systems and intercoolers but what you guys are doing im really scared, Thinking of just getting a working item running and body work done. Then ill take it from their.

Hello! Just another Camaro owner here..
I have a '69 plain Jane that is on the better side of a rotisserie restoration.
I've had the car since '92, so I know the it really well and how bad the original steering conversion was.
The restoration was mainly prompted in order to fix the conversion, and one thing led to another, as it usually does.

Originally a 327, Frost Green/Med Green Interior, TH350 with console (and no other options except maybe power steering) it's now a 454-PG-9" with A/C, Tuxedo Black, Black Interior, Power front Discs and Power Windows.

Can't wait to buy a Moser 12 bolt so the 9" can go.

Welcome xw6wpn. Hope you enjoy using the site. Some very helpful likeminded people on here. 69 Fastbacks are my favourite Mustang too. Wish I could have one of each! Cheers
