Hello from Germany

Hi my name is Christian i live in south west of germany. My car is a 1991 Camaro RS TBI that i bought a year ago. It has little to no rust underneath, the interior looks still nice and the motor starts right up...... thats it for the good news haha the brakes barely work and the suspension needs to be replaced. The t-top is rusty and all the weather stripping basically crumbles away. The previous owner took basically all screws from the interior and replaced them with metric but just enough so the dash wont fall out which i noticed working on the car. The battery was jammed in with a piece of wood, i need to change all the fluids and the paint is dull and probably cant be saved.

But still i am so happy when i sit in the car. I learn new things every time i am working on it (its the first time for me working on a car). I have allrealdy gotten so much great advices and knowledge from this forum and would like to say thank you. Maybe someday i can contribute something helpful. But for now i will keep on reading and learning.

And here is the car that is probably cost me a lot of money

I think my daughter and son-in-law are not far from you in Rosenheim. My wife is going there in December for the birth of twins so if you need any parts carried let me know. No exhaust manifolds though!

Re: Hello from Germany

Hey, sorry I'm not on very often. I'm not really sure where exactly he was stationed over there, but I do remember being near the Rhine River. We did a lot of walk athons, with triple headed dog metal pin rewards, and such. It's been 33 years or so since we've been there. So don't remember alot, I guess.
