In Roy’s own words; “I have attached some pictures of a few of the cars; 66 350HP Nova which is still in my possession, 67 375HP Camaro and my 2009 ZR1 Corvette (taken during museum delivery) both no longer in my possession.”

Roy - PS & BTW; I just used your name in vein but in this case it’s a good thing! Amazing cars!

...last two... (Sorry Roy, these two pics don't do your '66 justice. Your pics were crisp & outstanding. For some reason I couldn't bring up a good copy.).

What's the story on the 67?  Details?  Where is it now?  Inquiring minds want to know!  ???  ;) ;D

Camaro was an unrestored original paint car with if I remember correct around 36,000 mile, I owned it for I think 10 years, original drivetrain never wrecked, sold new in California had protect o plate and original black plates.

It was sold new at F. H. Dailey Chevrolet, Oakland, CA. It actually was a L35 325 hp.
Style trim and rallys were added (it had a body colored spare). Nice car.

Thanks for sending along those photos, Roy. All the cars are nice but man, that red Camaro is a real beauty.

Yes it was a 325 with Automatic, I was told several times while I had it that the trim level was incorrect for the car.

Now I'm really impressed, is the current owner a member, are your records from before I owned it.  I was always confused by the spare, never thought the rally wheels were added, I Just figured the bright trim had been added by a previous owner would it have come with small hub caps?  The really unique thing about this Camaro at least I think it is, the VIN on the engine pad is upside down. You recognized this car from my photo’s that’s almost unbelievable. Did you see it when I had it for sale? That was a while back as I sold it several years ago.

Roy, the trim level might be incorrect but it's still a very good looking car. Certainly no shame in owning that car in my opinion.

Roy,
I found the car in the database via the black plate. But I could also have found it from when you had the ad in Hemmings in March of 04.

Car was at Pomona back in 89, so it's been around.

In 67, Camaros only had rally wheels if the car also had disc brakes.

It was in California not too long before I purchased it, I do not ever remember sharing the dealer name off the protect-o-plate with anyone so seeing that was a surprise. Guess I should be happy that the black plates with the car in 89 were the same it had when I owned it.

I’ll never catch up with you guys on details, now I know rally wheels are disc brake only guess I should have known that based on the center cap but did not process it. The thing that drove me crazy about the car initially was the white stripe, and the red spare was always confusing. I might have a picture of the trim tag somewhere. Would you like it if I do.
