1998 V6 auto. My ride back in high school. I miss that car. Not as much power as my current 2010 SS but I kept her clean.

My first car was a 1975 Camaro V8 350 4 spd manual. It was a wonderful brown primer when I got it for $800 in 1986.

I added a Holley 750, Edelbrok Intake and Cam, Headers with exhaust and 411 gears. I got the Intake, Carb, Cam and lifters from my buddies 1978 Z28 that his girlfriend totaled. Yanked it off before it got towed away.

I was gonna paint it in Auto Body in HS, but we didn't get to it before the year was out so it was stuck with an upgraded Gray primer.

It was a ton of fun for a first car and have a lot of good memories in that car. Would pop out of reverse after awhile and would have to hold it in REAL hard to keep it.

Then I got a 1980 Monte Carlo with T-Tops and moved the intake and cam to it. That was a pimping ride.

This is about the condition it was in, but it did have nicer wheels on it. I need to see if my folks have a picture of it somewhere.

This is my first and likely last Camaro. I enjoy it thoroughly but, if I ever get out from underneath it, I'll move onto a different platform.

2001 Red v6. That replaced the 89 Beretta I had before it. Sold it to buy the new 2015 v6 I have now. Loved the car, but I don't miss some of the quirks it had.

This is not the Camaro I had but it does look exactly like the one I bought when I was in college back in '85. It's a 1979 Red Z28. I still love that body style.
