Since everyone loves to see pictures I thought I would share what I ran across a few days ago.  As I was going through some old photos at my mothers I ran across this one.  Still going through old pictures and hoping I find more of the vintage ones of the cars.

My father Carman Cook with his new Camaro - April 1968




And the car he traded in for the Camaro.

Wow, did that bring back memories as a good friend purchased a new 66 Chevelle (396/360hp) in april 1966 when he turned 18 prior to graduation. Then in 68 he ordered and had a 68 Camaro L78 with M22. Wow that thing ran and was a warrior on the street.
Thanks for sharing and glad you have some great pics of your Dad and his rides. Cool!!!!!!!!!! Smiley

Wow Chick..  Did you know my dad?  lol  He was 20 when he bought the Chevelle and 22 when he ordered the 68.  My parents lived in Painesville & Mentor Ohio in the the mid to late 60's and he worked at Lucas Machine.

No I did not but seems like we'd been best of buddies with the similarities or taste in cars back then. You had one cool Dad DW!
