69 Camaro garage queen

We had this Camaro actually in the garage for 16 years, I drove it 2 years after we got our house, then parked it for 14 years, I think its been about 2 years since I had fired up the engine. The points went bad and the car wouldn't start, thats when I parked it. It sit on the side of our last house about 3 years with no engine in it, so of the 29 years I owned the car it has been on the road only half that time, looking forward to getting it restored and bugging you guys for advice, thanks Jeff

I've got a 58 sliver hawk that I've owned for about 30 yrs that I hope to get to soon. Thought I was the only one with a project that sat that long. Good luck on the camaro. I had a freind of mine tell me once{I always wonder how all these old guys had these great project cars that were half done. Now that I'am older I see how they did it.}
