I love the April survivors

 Now the April cars are what I call unrestored and display their patina very well  ;)

unrestored for sure. The 67 may be the only one that continues to survive. The other 2 only survived long enough to see there parts used on other cars. That 69 looks like it is trying so hard to stay viable. Reminds me of the movie Christine, just trying to roll another foot.

Did I do something on my computer to affect the way TC is arranged now?  It had been awhile since I've been on their site, and I can hardly figure out how to maneuver on it now....  :(       Ugh...  I hope there is not someone who thinks it's an improvement???

 They changed the layout. I just select Active Topics mainly and it does have a 'Recent Discussions' window on the right.

Yes TC had a big change to their format. Not sure if I like that...

What, no story? Bryon, Where is the owner's story this month?
Here,  I will give it a start:
  ::)(feel free to add to the story)...Hi, my name is Shay-dee Tree. I bought my (which ever chosen POS pictured, insert) Camero{sic} from my cousin Billy Bob. He found it when the crick washed out from spring rains. It was holding the bank from eroding. When he drug it out with the Faaarm-mall, I said, gosh dang, I always wanted one of them Cameros! I have had it now for like 35 years! Yep!  Ain't for sale though, uh, uh, no way! this think is worth mileons...I got plans fur her, oh yea. One of these days I am making it into one of them show cars. Them guys frum pickers came over. ofered a ton a money. I said, noooo waaay, this thang is rare an an-tee-q(antique, actually heard that way pronounced where I live). This thing will never be for sale, it is worth a lot ya' know. I seen one just like it on Beret-Jakson. Yea, this jewel is worth a mint, I Know! A leetle tweeking and mud, she'll be good as nu!!I got me a motor for her too. Its one of them rare 428 cobrajet- turbine- z motors. I got me a 3/4 cam, pop-ups, crane roller pushrods and one of them winy timing chains 'cause only the best is going in this gal. yea, I had her board 300 and it has a 400 crank and a gazilion pounds of compreson. this thing will be sooo bad...I am runnin' both a holly, a spredboard,a quadrunnr-jet with a ...,a...,5 turbos and ny-trus, yea thats the tiket. I already got clarence from the govrmint to run jet gas, it'l be sooo bad, ya wait and see. Only thang lak'n is a STD valve. Im told it is a rare car from my prole ocifer. He say it is a Yaaanko, so now I am think'n he is right. I saw it on a tag under the floor, yea, Yaaanko, thats it! I turned down a milleeeon twiced now. She aint fur sale, no sir...hey, you now where a guy can find a cuple mor match'n blocs? I want to get her off the groun' before she goes down hill. I heerd u guys will confirm this as one of them baret-jakson Yaaankos, but I already know it is, so dont much matr whut y'all think. Oh yea, i'm tole-d that this RARE car has sooo many op-shins that it has to tags on the cow...I guess 1 fur eech eer?

Ah, I see that now.  Thanks! 

Go to the far bottom of the screen, lower left corner.  There will be a way to select what you want.  Select -- Camaros.net (Classic)

I see Brian snagged the 67 pic for use over there.  Which is fine...  8)
