Did you get the one in True Day 2 fashion , before it was lettered? I can re-post if not…

I really dig this car & your 68…

Here is the Motion Performance Catalog I mentioned previously.  My apologizes in advance for the photo size.  Unfortunately, this is the best I could do with the restrictions on the forum.  To see larger photos you can go here.

Last of the info.  The only thing that is missing from the package were the Motion decals which my father had on the qtr glasses of the green car for many years and eventually removed them in the early 80's.

Got ole green out last sunday and putted around the neighborhood and put'er back under cover.  Pretty original but there are a few things I still need to do which include replacing the '80's repo valve covers with original correct ones (which I have) and also smog was removed and headers added.  I think this is the 3rd or 4th set and I have another set I will eventually attempt to install since I do not know the brand or application but they look like they might fit..  fingers crossed.  Also power steering & disc brake option was added by the original owner (my father).  Originally mandatory power drums.

Really cool to see Orig Paper backed foil decals-stickers.

Funny how times Change in 1983 FIRST thing I would DO is Scrape that off and put new ones on.

In 1981 NONE of the "Survivor- Patania" cars were looked at fondly like I do now. Sure enjoy them & appreciate it

Hard to believe its been 17 years since my father passed and 4 years for my mother (on the 23rd). He was a true Camaro enthusiast and my mother loved him unconditionally.

First photo is I believe Tri-Cities (TN) Camaro Show


Second was '95 (maybe '96?) Camaro Nationals in Atlanta, GA, Pretty sure Rick George (Rick's Camaro) was the main sponsor but my memory is not the best.


Third is at the local Wilson Bank and Trust show in Oct. '95.
