Picture of your FIRST Camaro

Mine from 1987 in this context the headbanger could find no better home...



Ps - My 2010 is the second camaro I have owned. I went from my first love here to a 76 tran am, then many non sporty cars, to a 2006 Charger to my new love....

My 80z28 i restored and put a 406sbc in.
Also had a 78 z28 with a 350 in it.
The new SS is my third camaro and looks like it will be the fastest of the bunch.

My first F-Body was not a Camaro, but a Trans Am. It was a 1977 Silver/Red automatic. I cannot find a picture right now, but I do have pictures of what I consider my real first F-Body, a 1978 Trans Am with T/A 6.6 220hp/325tq, Hurst 4-speed manual, radio-delete option car. I wanted biggest/baddest engine and no frills. Bought it brand new in 1978 and it caught fire and burned in 1988 :( Here is that car:

Here is my 1973 Z28. I ordered it on January 2, 1973 and took delivery in early May. I ordered it without stripes or spoilers as I was working for an Oldsmobile dealer in the body shop. How do you like the paint on the front spoiler?

First car/first camaro.

parted it out to get my 5th gen.

The last setup it had, and ran, was a cam only (224 cam) ls1/6 speed. It's best time was 11.7 @ 116.

I started a 418 build for it and was going to convert it to a 4l80e. Had some serious heads, single plane intake, 4150 throttle body, etc for it. Then I decided I didn't want that serious of a drag car. I have something a lil more street friendly now.

My first was the 75 Camaro coupe that I sold to put a down payment on my 2010 2LT M6. Darn, I can't seem to upload files from this iPad, just check my profile for many pix. eB

1994 Z/28. I worked all through high school to save up for this. I bought it the spring I graduated. Had it for six years until I got married and started a family. My Wife told me that I would get another one someday....Then in 2002 when they stopped making them I cried. Then....well, you know the rest!!

This was taken during my honeymoon in September of 1996 in Heber Valley, Utah.

Here's my first Camaro, an '89 IROCZ28 with the 350TPI V8. Bought it just after High School and kept it for 10 years before selling to buy my 2010 VR 2SS/RS. I loved that car, but the 2010 is SO much better.
