View Full Version : Newbie from AZ

02-22-2005, 10:16 AM
Hey everyone...I'm new here. I'm from Mesa, AZ (near Phx) and I've got a '71 Camaro SS that's an all-original (for now) daily driver.

I'm also a student at AZ St Univ and I'm designing control arms for my '71 as my senior design project...I've posted a thread in the Suspension section about it. Here's a link:


Any advice/comments from people more experienced than me would be greatly appreciated...

Well, I am going to start by saying that I don't know anything about suspension design. But I do know alot about ASU. I too live in Mesa and am going to ASU. :icon996:

You can add one more to the ASU list. I live in Tempe and work in Gilbert. We should all meet up sometime.

Good to have some AZ guys around. Sometimes I think all the car nuts are on the east coast...

Hey man!

This is Ryan from school....glad to see you on here. I'm pretty much just a lurker around here, but let me know if you need any help with your project. I don't know much about the theory, but I can help with disassembly/resassembly.

I live in Ahwatukee and work in Chandler...own a '69 Camaro. Nice to know who else is local may need to buy/sell some parts or refer each other to known good deals! I know a guy who has a 12 bolt Posi with 4:11's if any of you are interested. I believe it has been gone through recently too. PM me if interested and I'll refer you to him. I was going to buy it but had a 10 bolt built for me.

Welcome to the board. Peoria checking in. I live near Lake Pleasant but my office is in Tempe. I am just past the college age, but I do enjoy driving down University on the way to work to gawk at the local scenery :jawdrop:

RatHead, if your referring to my 12 bolt it is sold, but I do apperciate you lookin out though, and now all we need in AZ, is the new road course by Luke AFB to open up again, damm that sucks it got shut down. Im in north Phoenix close to Glendale and Lake Pleasant.

Yeah Zuess it was yours I was referring to. Damn I was hoping to get it sold for ya! Too bad the track shut down would like to have gone there!

Thanks for trying, now I think about it, we still have another 12 Bolt with slicks on it, gears are like 5.11 something not sure. But I think it came out of a older truck. But we would get rid of it for like 300.00$, slicks and all. If anyone needs one its a good price. :naughty:
