About “Silver”

Just like I needed a new Camaro. My Wife and I bought this car in August from its third owner. This gentleman was hurting for money and we just happened to be in the right place at the right time./ My wife had wanted a 1969 Camaro Z/28 for a long time. We just couldn't ever find the right one. Well while it isn't a Z28 it is close to perfect as we'll ever find.

About “SS 396”

I bought this car in August of 1980 and drove it daily to high school and college. Then in 1986, it was treated to a frame-on restoration. Over the years I have maintained and updated the restoration and it still wins awards at car shows.

Except a couple of minor things, this Chevelle is all stock! Even has a Muncie Shifter!

I drive it to all shows and cruises. The longest distance driven was to Super Chevy Sunday in Indianapolis.

Oh yeah, and this is my first car! After all these years I have no plans to sell it.
