General Discussion / 1 owner bench seat 1968 RS camaro
« on: March 07, 2016, 02:22:38 AM »
wife and I stopped by local grocery store and meet a very nice older gentleman as he got out of his car.  I commented on how nice his 68 was and he said "it's a bench seat" I couldn't wait to look at it, said he's the original owner and only 1 repaint.  He stated that he and his wife had just had a daughter, and told the dealer they wanted a bench seat or they would go somewhere else.  I thought it was pretty cool, I had to explain to the wife how rare it was

well, while going through the paperwork from my z i found a name for a possible previous owner, a simple google search produces a number and i call it

I asked if they gentleman that answered the phone knew Micheal *** "yes that my father" i advised him that i own a camaro that might have belong to him, he asked "is it silver and black strips?" yes, "do you want to sell it" no "yes that was my fathers car, i remember it from when i was little, you bought it from Scotty ***?" yes

we talked a little more i was informed his father was away for work, but gave me his dads number and told me he would call him and let him know i would be calling.

so i call Micheal and get some interesting info on the car, he sold it as a roller to Scotty and the name and number of the guy (jimmy) he bought it from

so i call Jimmy who really gives me some more history on the car, it was drag raced, he cut the welds on the 1/4 and pulled them to fit bigger tires and tons of other info, that the car didn't have a factory tach it was original cortez silver and black strips, and other things, along with he has pictures from when he owned the car and will get copies for me or find someone to email to me, he bought it in 72~73 when he was 22 and sold it to Micheal in 75 when he found himself without a job and needed money, that days later he got a job and tried to by it back from Micheal 2 weeks later.  Jimmy also told me that at one point the car was traded among his gear head/drinking buddies lol.  then i get "i bought the car from Kenny ***" but no #, that Kenny sold him the car after having constant issues with the engine, including grenading a few engines including the original, and that Micheal pulled the original trans when he installed a 427/400 combo (have to call Micheal back and get info on the trans)

again with a quick google search and knowing the area the car was in, i was able to get # which i called and left a message, a few minutes later i get a call back from a nice lady, asked if she new Kenny and was told yes, let her know that i own a camaro that Kenny once owned and she sounded confused, i let her know that Jimmy told me that Kenny would be about 70ish now, and she says your looking for my father in law, thought it was really cool that i was looking for the original owner and that she would pass along my info,

now the waiting game
