Default Grotto Blue 68' Camaro (Hot Rod Driver)

This is my little 68 driver. Freshened in the mid 1980's this car was local from new and has only been owned by a handful of folks since it was restored 30 years ago. Yes, this car as seen was actually built back in the mid 80's and has only seen 4000 miles on it since that time. The rebuild included a lot of rare options such as its Tic Toc Tach, Tilt Column, Wood Wheel, Speed Minder, AM/FM, Rear Speakers & Defrost, Fold Down Seat, Console, Gauges, Head Restraints, Deluxe Interior and more. Only NOS GM parts were used during the cars refit/freshening and it still retains 100% of its original GM sheet metal with "Zero Rust" throughout. A real solid little driver and a time capsule of sorts since it hasn't been abused or weathered since it was repainted 22 years ago.

The car itself is not a real Z/28, but is an original Rallysport car with GM Docs and a pile of great paperwork. The second owner refit the car starting in 1984 and completed the build in it's original Grotto Blue by 1986. At that time and long before anyone cared about cars being altered, he added the functional GM ducted cowl hood, spoiler and all of its current Z/28 options. Upgrades at the time included the Z/28 badging, deck stripes, a transplanted 302, M22 4-speed and a 3:73 geared 12 Bolt. That Z like drive line is still in the car today, and it will soon be coming out for some Day II upgrades.

I'm keeping with the interior/exterior appearance as seen below, but adding a few modern power adders.

That is a beauty. Can't wait to see the next changes, although it looks killer as-is.

I like everything about it. Perfect stance and options. Grotto blue like most lighter shades looks so nice when it's fresh.

Took the 68 down to the High River Class Car Show yesterday and caught some video as the sun was coming up here in the morning. Behind the video of the drive down, I have included about 50 shots of other cars that were out for the last show of the year up here. There were some 1260 cars out yesterday. Fun day for sure.
