Camaro pic in the news

This AP photo was in our local paper - shows a nice 68 RS/SS396 convertible in LA with tornado damage all around it. Actually the pic in the paper was slightly different, it shows the rear of the car completely, including the plate 'RSSS396". Nice car, sorry for their loss......

Perhaps, but Rock Hill is in SC not LA, where that picture was taken.  I think Mike's place is on the other side of town from where the worst part of the storms went through.  We were about 50 miles due north of Rock Hill sitting it out by the side of the road (no, not in the 68).  That was really a rough storm even on the far side from where the tornados hit.

 Hi guys, re:68 rs SS in La. tornado belongs to a Friend of mine. The car was stored 2 houses from my house. The tornado took the entire garage/shop,tools,etc. The car received heavy damage to the pass. door and every body panel has some damage,including the convertible top frame and interior water damage. My rs SS coupe is in my garage and suffered no damage. PTL  Both cars are numbers matching rs SS big blocks. Plans for restoration are already underway !
