Vintage Picture of Mom's 67 SS/RS
« on: January 09, 2018, 08:29:48 PM »
Hello everyone.  Thought I'd say hello and break the ice with a quick pic.

Dad worked for a GM subsidiary in Indy and this car was provided as a GM Executive car for 6 months ( I think that was the duration) then available for purchase so Dad bought it at that time for Mom's daily driver.
 
The specs included ac/tilt/wood wheel, ps, power windows, PDFB, posi 10 bolt, powerglide, 350/295, cruise, AM/FM, red deluxe int, headrests, full gauges, fold down back seat, luggage rack, bumper guards, etc...etc...  No 8 track tape deck I remember was the big thing they always said the car was missing.  :)
This was certainly a special car.  I learned about cars working on it with with Dad doing valve jobs and stuff.  They sold it in 1975 for a more reliable family car and the guy who bought it totaled it before he got the title transferred.  Sad ending, sorry.
Since then I've had 13 different 67-69 Camaros and all were special in different ways, but this is the one that started the passion for me.

Bill

Thanks guys!  That’s my little brother in the back seat. I remember that day very well actually.  I was 14 when I took that picture. I told mom to “rev it up!”  Well, not exactly being aware of what I meant, she floored it in park. And just held it there!!!!!  Until the engine died. It wouldn’t start for a bit until the lifters bled down.   :)

My cousin had a black with parchment '67 equipped almost exactly like that. Both pretty unusual cars. Welcome to the forum.
