Hello new to site

I have a 1975 camaro that was my first car and sat in the shed since 92 when I when into the Navy. Life went on and I now have two boys 10 and 7 and we have just pulled the car out of my fathers barn and brought it the mile down the road where we live. After getting it home I put a battery to it and hooked up a small contaner of gas. It fired up after putting a little gas down the carb. My boys jumped at the sound of the 350 dual exhaust coming to life and they started jumping around yelling "it runs, it runs" with big smiles on their faces. They got just a excited as I did to hear that engine rumble to life. Not to mention all the memiories of past youth spent driving this car. So now on to the hard work of getting it back into running condition and restoring it. I also have a 1986 jeep cj7 that I'm in the middle of gathering parts to rebuild the 258 in.

None taken this century. But will try and get some taken and uploaded. As for shape, she's a little rough when I bought her from the orginal onwer it was pretty rusted out. And being a teenager and broke I used alot of bondo sanded it down. But at least I know where all the bad spots are still. So alot of body work is a head. First I'd like to get her running good and redue all the brakes and suspenstion. Body work will have to be last. Funny thing happened about a mounth after we pulled her out of my fathers barn, the orginal onwer called and wanted to buy it back since it was his first car. I had to break it to him that we just pulled it out of the barn and started to tinker with it. He said if I changed my mind to call him back.
