My first Camaro was a 67 SS/RS 350 4 speed car. My first new car was a 68 Road Runner 383 4 speed bought new in Aug of 68. I just gave my son my 77 Trans Am last year, I've owned it since March of 80. I also have a 99 Corvette Vert, and a 2009 V Star 1300 cycle. Still a motor head at 69.

Sorry to hear Bearbait, life is definitely like a vapor and then it is gone. I have several friends already waiting for me. Cool tribute and memory to your buddy.

Nice cars Charlie! Thatis what mine is a 67 RS/SS 350. It is currently a 383 stroker but still have the original motor. Looks like a beautiful TA, and I do not think I will ever be to old for more power!

That is why I bought a Kubota more power to the PTO than the competition

Takes years of riding experience to hand the sheer power of 150cc's of Italian scooter. 70% of the torque is available under 3000 rpm. It's a rocket that will go 55 mph, 60 if you take off the windscreen. But the windscreen keeps the bugs out of my teeth.

Sadly, I am trying to find a good home for this after the wife hung up her helmet for good. Got too many "ve-hackles" in the garage.





When we bought this used in 2007, my wife followed me home from the dealer as I rode in a full tuck to keep up with traffic. I asked her how I looked on her "plum" scooter... "Raging..." was her response. Hey! I kinda like purpley-plum!

Heres my rotisserie restored 1970 Camaro Baldwin Motion Clone. The car is actually a 77 that i converted to a 1970 since rusty body panels had to be replaced anyway.
468BBC
M21 Muncie 4spd
4:10 rear gear
Custom made 4into1 header sidepipes

I got 3 intense years into it. Did absolutely everything myself except installing the windshield.











First drive, still needs tuning.

I sold my '78 Z28 a year ago - just too many projects, and not enough space in the shop, or time. Currently project is slower and uglier, but at least as cool; a 1941 Ford bren gun carrier. I'll have to take some pics.

I gave up a real nice 76 Camaro to buy a 79 Z28, worst mistake I ever made. Seemed like from the first day I bought it everyone was out to get me and then finally a drunk driver ran into the back of it while we were sitting at a red light and pretty much totalled it.
