Wow, small world. I remember seeing that car back when I was stationed at Charleston AFB. I think I chatted with you briefly too when I had my white '78 there. This was early 2004. Sound familiar? It's always cool to read about a personal car story. She looks a bit rough now but it definitely has potential. What kind of condition are the floor pans in?

My name is Chris. I had my white '78 Type LT Camaro (white/blue interior) at Charleston AFB from Jan 2004 to Sep 2004. It was shipped back to CA for storage and I bought a new black single cab Silverado to replace it. Not sure, but are you the same guy who had a black primered 3rd gen Camaro in the dorm parking lot who was building a carb'd LS1 for it? You might have also know Bill who had a 3rd gen Camaro with a 4th gen Firebird interior in it.

yup, I remember you now. My buddy Josh is the actual owner of the 86 camaro with the carb conversion.

I remember bill's car. We were thinking about swapping the interior out of the 94 over to the 86.

meh, I've already decided that I want to be buried in this car when I die.

or smelted down in it, or blown up in it. either way, she's my baby and I'm never letting her go again!

keep an eye out, I had honestly thought about buying another one before I got mine back. I got lucky that the guy I sold her to had run out of time and money and I got her back.

the one that is on there is the second one I had for the car. the first one, I used the wrong size plastic adapter (as well as not having the allen screw tightened all the way) and went to shift to third one night and the whole thing came off and I lost the battery that lights up the eyes in the shifter.

went out and got a new one the next day

I will eventually just get rid of the thing and get something different, it's hard to find something that looks good in a Jeep though. When mine came off, it was just a hard shift into 2nd, I was like, UH OHHH!
