Dear friends on Nasty, I start this project thread after four years that I bought my 1979 Camaro Berlinetta 350 V8 TH350 and also four years of slow progress due to restricted budget: every year I fight to save money to buy spare parts on several on-line stores, there in my beloved United States of America, so, slowly, every year I repair something! Sadly, a mountain of taxes is being applied over parts and the shipment is another heavy piece to pay, but if you wanna play with the pro, you got to pay like a pro (or this is what they wanna make believe!). However, this is the link of my presentation here at Nasty: Hi from Italy! and this is the link that I wrote when I purchased this SuperCar: This was my dream... and now here begin the story: An evening in the end of September 2010 (3 months after have purchased the car), when returning by a dinner with friends, engine died due gasoline starvation in the tank and I wasn't able to made it started again since I went a walk to gas station and filled a gas can and return. After that, the engine died every quarter mile and I was sure (remembering to have seeing rust on the tank) that some dirt had reached the carburator. The day after, I had cleaned the carb and put a scratch filter in-line and the engine revs without problem but I knew that the time has came to start supplying parts for a winter of garage job! I have just spent 11500 Euro (14500 of today's dollars) to buy the car, in that moment I had to ask myself where to start and what to save... so I start to clean the tank, but after had removed the second layer of rust I found the first of a series of holes. A new tank had to be ordered. PS: I would say a big THANK YOU to PFZ28 and Sean 74Z for their words of encouragement in order to start this thread; to all other member here I say: please tell me if you don't understand what I write and please feel free to correct me when I write something wrong: I would learn! Thank you guys!!
