Hey guys,
New here.
I have a black '68 T top.
I started out with a black '59 I bought when I was 14 years old (1970). In '74 I joined the Air Force and had to leave the '59 in my dad's garage. He sold it without my knowledge. He signed my name on the title. We argued about that 'til his dying day.
I bought the '68 in 1975. It didn't have an engine in it when I got it. It was originally a 427 Tri-power car.
It now has a 350 stroker (383) and is turbo charged. other than that it is original, for what that's worth without the 427.
Anyway, I'll take a look around the forum.

Very nice car!

Bummer about the '59.

This forum is mostly active in the Off Topic section. Pretty much all of us have owned Vettes over the years though.

Disassembled right now. I am installing a fuel injection system. The turbo didn't work as well with a carb as I had hoped. It is still a beast!
