Where to begin...

Well, hello everybody - my name is Robyn, and my car's name is Cool Hand Fluke. Yes, like the movie, but with an "f" due to the circumstances in which I found myself purchasing what is now my latest ride. I am a fourth-time Camaro owner... it's a long story. Rainy-day material. Anyway, the car I've got right now is an '88 IROC-Z, 305, M/T, and quite frankly, I think it's the greatest thing since the small-block itself. However, it's kind of a project car - and I bought it knowing this, but as fortune would befall me, I have found myself in a sort of bind. I let a friend of mine borrow the car, and they plowed into the back of someone with it and the wreck tore up my front end on the driver's side all the way up to the wheel well. We had the car fixed, and now it's got fresh paint(niiice) and all is nearly well EXCEPT!! no one in my area can seem to get their paws on a set of the IROC emblems for the stupid sideskirts. I did a color-swap on the car, thinking it'd be no big deal to find the colors I wanted in the new emblems that I would be in need of - but little did I realize that these emblems are more difficult to find than - well, I don't even know what. I'd be lucky to find any IROC emblems at all, let alone to find them in the color that I'm looking for, said color being red.

Now I know what you're thinking; try GM. Try Eckler's. YearOne. Ebay. I have, and these emblems are just not to be found, and on top of all of that, there aren't any salvage yards in my area anymore. I don't really know what to do except to slap some bondo in those sockets, smooth it out, and just paint over the damned things, which I don't really want to do, because for some reason, I want the whole world out there on the street to know that my ride is an IROC. Can anybody help me out with this??

... also, I'd like to post some pictures of my cars, past and present - but I don't know how to get pictures up on this website, silly as it may seem. Help!! LOL - thanks everyone!
