About “Wild Cherry”

A guy who works for me owns a black IROC-Z. Until he showed me his car, I wasn't really into cars at all. John's car changed all that. Within a couple of weeks, I knew I needed a hot car too. I started looking for a car that suited me, but I kept going back to John's black IROC, so that's what I decided I wanted. One day at work, he told me about an older friend of his who was selling a red IROC that he had bought brand new. He had arthritis in his knees, and it was getting worse. There was no way he could drive a stick shift car anymore. Since he hardly ever drove the car anyhow, he decided it was time to sell it. The car had been kept in a heated garage under a car cover, and never driven in rain or snow. It only had about 15,000 miles on it since new. It looked and drove like a new car. He wanted it to go to a good home, and John put in a good word for me. I don't drive it very often either - it's strictly a good weather pleasure car, just like it was for the old guy who sold it to me.

About “Red Smokey”

ive always been obsessed with the 2nd Gen. camaros and when i saw this car i fell in love with it. I had to coax an old friend into letting me buy it from him, it took some time but he finnaly gave in. 1,500$ later and a new window motor and this car was ready to go! ive never had a problem with it. I recently drove it from georgia to texas, a 18 hour drive, due to how old it was with 74k on the dash,i was transferring to italy at the time so i had to drive it the distance, and to tell the truth i was rather nervous traveling from Georgia to Texas but it made it all in one trip.
this car shows what a true chevy is all about!
i have big plans for this car in the future once im done with the military.
