Driving your Camaro this holiday?
« on: November 25, 2016, 03:01:06 PM »
Okay, who, what year, and where?
We've been at the beach, but I'm driving the 68 as soon as we get home. It's very nice weather here in NC. I'll rake leaves later.  ;)

Yesterday,. I talked with a guy who has a 68 vert. His neighbor modifies new Camaros.

I had the 67 out Wednesday to my local guy to get the car aligned..  I hope the weather holds out as I plan to get it back out either today or tomorrow..

I try to drive the 68 Z/28 at least twice a month. Weather is nice enough here in Tucson to drive year round....Joe

Great pictures, Darrell! I drove the Camaro to the in laws Sunday for Thanksgiving. I'll continue to drive it until they treat the roads this winter, then it will be tucked away in the garage until the roads are good and washed off next spring.

My wife is still daily driving the 69 Z and loving it.  Only time I get to drive it anymore is once a week when we go grocery shopping.  Luckily we live in a climate where we have year round enjoyment with the cars.

This is a typical winter, Jan 16th, morning in Tucson. Pictures were taken a few years back on a morning cruise. I try to get it out for a drive every couple of weeks but don't usually take pictures when I'm out...Joe

Thanks guys. I love this car. Of the 16 first generation Camaros I've owned this was the first one I purchased. That was March 1976. The last one I purchased was in 1981. I still own it too....Joe

Thanks! It's one of those dreaded clones, but I'm not hiding it. Definitely fun to putt around in.

Very kool. I only drove my 68 to high school once. That was my last day of school my senior year. I didn't trust classmates around it, lol. Had a couple buddies as well in my class that had first gens so we all drove them that day. This was back in 2010. My 68 on the left, buddies 68 SS 396 car, and then other buddies early build 69.

Neat picture.  8) I used to drive my 68 SSRS 396 to high school & it was rare to see a 67-69 Camaro in the lot even back in the early 80's.



 She just loves the cars and I think secretly likes the attention, so I have been letting her take it as long as the weather is nice.


On a side note.. I ran across this this morning  while I took my other daughter to an appointment.



I snapped the pic with my phone and started to drive away. I saw an older gentleman limping towards the car so I went back around and stopped and talked to him briefly. I parked and walked up & said...  Hello I just had to get a picture of his car as I have one just like it. He then looked at me with that look in his eyes like we all have when hearing someone say the same thing, as he waited for me to finish me sentence with...  only its not a Camaro its a 73 LTD Station wagon Squire edition Brown with a Green fender. lol..  I showed him a picture I had on my phone of our White 68 Convertible and perked up a bit. He said he bought the car new and it's been his only car since new.   :)  He asked if ours was an SS and I said no it had a 327 in it and he said his had a 6 cyl. I could tell he was in a hurry so I let him go but asked him if it was born Corvette Bronze and he kind of chuckled and said.. I was the first person he had ever talked too that even knew what that color was. lol..
