About “carmine”

I never intended to buy this car...but most of you know how that goes!!!
already owning 4 cars (had not sold my cavalier yet and the z28 had not burnt up yet).
i just wanted to...look at it. a gentleman nearby had posted this car up for sale and it was nearby and being the camaro fan i am i had to see it.
as it turns out this car just stunned me... the paint outside was a bit faded but the body was in great shape and the interior was like it just rolled out of the factory, and the fact it had less then 80k miles..i had to have it.
and i got lucky...the owner had just came back from norwood ohio and using his 70 chevelle he had competed on pinks all out.
while he was there he had saw and fell in love with a harley....but his wife had told him no because he already had 2 toys.
so he agreed to sell the camaro.....wanting that harley bad he put the car up for a price that would sell quick.
and sell quick it did...though it mainly sits covered and protected on a warm dry day i take it out and it always draws crowds,
though its a berlinetta it has the option engine( 350 sbc) out of the z28 and at some point someone but the spoiler from the z28 on the back...yet the interior has the refinement and luxurys of the berlinettas. power everything,excellent heat/ac
its great having the best of both worlds sometimes lol

About “Dirty Joe”

I've been dreaming about having my own T/A since I was 7 and as of 04/17/2010 my dream came true. It's been great having it so far and I'm looking forward to working on it and looking waaay cool cruising around town.
It's spent plenty of time in the garage getting attention, and hopefully it will become a great car someday.
