Why, I remember when....

Just thinking about the Chevys in my life takes me back to about 1962...I was just a young feller then (about 9, I think!) and being from a big family, we always had station wagons. We had a '57 Chevy wagon then and there were big rust holes in the floorboards; I remember watching the road going by between my feet! I got in trouble when I threw my sister's doll through the hole and we all jumped in the back seat to watch it bounce down the road behind us....60's entertainment at it's best! Fast forward through the next 43 years and I can't remember how many Chevys, and the 2010 Camaro gets built next week!

Also had a 1990 GMC single cab shortbed stepside (sold it with 217K mile on it and it still did some insane burnouts) The only non GM vehicle was a 03 Jeep Cherokee. Currently have a Saturn Aura as my daily driver.

My best "Chevy" memory was pulling my buddy's Ford Ranger AND his boat (which was taking on water) that was on the attached trailer, up the boat ramp and out of the water with my '99 silverado 1500 4x4. And what really got my buddy was I stayed in 2 wheel drive.

My first car was a 1970 Monte Carlo with a 402 big block. My husband, who was my boyfriend in high school, had a 71 Chevelle SS454 convertible that he ended up trading for a 69 Z28. We use to spend all of our extra money buying parts to make our cars faster. I remember my mom getting mad at me because I use to keep car parts in my bedroom. We hung out with a group of guys that were really into their cars. We would all go up to the drag strip and race all day long. My dad would even come along with his 69 Nova. I have some very fond memories of those days and I wouldn't trade them for anything...

I had a 1982 Chevette with a homemade kicker box with two 15” subs and a 500 watt amp that filled the entire hatchback area. One day I played some 2 Live Crew so loud I shattered the glass on the hatch back.

A year later I got run over by a front end loader at a construction site, which pretty much totaled it. I towed it home and after some work with my dads welder and a sledge hammer I got it drivable again, however not legal. Then I proceeded to take it to the local gravel pit and trashed the hell out of it, rolled it a couple times, left it there, then walked home.

Well, I've got kind of a long story, so here it goes:

My dad has had:
-1954 Ford (free car by neighbor)
-1972 Vega
-1967 Camaro RS/SS (which he sold in parts)
-19XX Volkswagen
-19XX Jeep
-1982 Camaro (turned into an IROC-Z clone)
-1986 Corvette
-1969 Camaro RS/SS (daily driver)
-199X S10
-Motorcycle
-1998 S10
-1971 Corvette Stingray
-2002 F150

In the future, I'm expecting:
-1969 Mustang Fastback (father/son project, and since he's already had two first-gen Camaros, he wants a change)
-201X Z28 (if ever made)

But, here's where it really began:
Way back in the magical year of 1995, my dad spent 6 long, grueling months looking for a 1969 Camaro. It had to have A/C and it had to have hideaway headlights. One day, he comes across this total beater about 50 miles from our house, and he bought it. He spent 10 years fixing it up into one of the greatest '69 Camaro's out on the road. It's almost fully loaded (sans tilt steering wheel and something else), it's a mean green with white stripes, and it's packing a hurtful 489.
It seemed only natural I get my own Camaro to keep up the family tradition, but it wasn't until this time last year I decided on getting a fourth-gen f-body. Prior to that, I wanted a classic Nova, but I saw a '96 firebird outside my school every day and I decided that's what I really wanted. My mom suggested looking into Camaros since they were very similar, and I saw an early fourth-gen Camaro, and changed my mind to that for a while. A few months later, a junior at my school started to drive his late fourth-gen Camaro, and that's what I ultimately decided to get. In April, I started looking for my car to have ready for when I got my permit. I spent around two months looking for on craigslist, recycler, and auto trader, and I finally came across the Grape Ape on the latter. I drove 90 minutes out to Canoga Park not even sure we'd take it. My dad spent two hours negotiating, and we finally got the guy down to $3600. Needless to say, we were at the bank in under 15 minutes, and the AAA office in 30. The car was mine.
