About “Storm Trooper”

My boyfriend got tired of my driving my all-original, low mile 1986 Firebird in all kinds of weather and traffic, so on the anniversary of our first date, he surprised me with the down payment on a car he had found at a local dealer that he thought I'd like. I'm not too crazy about white, but as for the rest of the car, I'm there! A small, sporty convertible with an automatic and low miles is just what I'd have looked for if I knew I was looking for a car! I saw his logic because, just earlier today, I almost got clobbered in my Firebird by some lady in an Explorer who was talking on a cell phone. She ran a red light and if I hadn't nailed the brakes she would have put an end to my car..... and maybe ME!

(I had originally called this car "White Fire" until a Motortopia friend said that it's front end reminded him of a Storm Trooper from "Star Wars". I had to agree, and I liked it so much that I changed the car's name!)

About “Maro”

This was my first Camaro, and the beginning of my Camaro addiction. It came stock with a 305, but somewhere down the line that got tossed out for the 350 it has in it now. It may be "just another 3rd gen" Camaro, but I love this car. You'll never see a for sale sign on this window! Someday I will get around to fixing it up a bit. I originally wanted a 383 in it, but I may just try to squeeze a few more ponies out of the motor it's got now. We shall see...
