About “My Keeper”

This painting is a George Trosley Original painting that my wonderful wife gave me for Christmas.

I bought this car when I was a Junior in High School. I dated my future wife in it. We also drove it on our honeymoon. I sold it shortly after we were married. I bought it back 15 years later. It had been off the road the whole time.

After a massive restoration, it is worth WAY more to me than to anyone else.

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.
