About “Cherry Bomb”

This is my red 1968 Camaro Z/28. I bought this car in 1970 from the original owner with only 14,000 miles on it. After driving it for a while, I garaged it and completed a complete restoration.

About “70454SS”

This is my 1970 Chevelle SS. It only has 60,000 original miles.

This is a true SS Chevelle LS5 454 with a M22 Rock Crusher 4-speed. It is an original Cranberry Red car with Black stripes. Unfortunately the original motor blew up in 1971 and the block was no where to be found when the car was resurrected after sitting for 17 years. It is still a 454 but with a late model block, otherwise it is all period correct. This Chevelle had a complete frame-off restoration in 2005 and looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor in 1970.
