Default 454 Camaro, DAY ONE

My new book covering 1962-1974 musclecars, DAY ONE, showcases the rarest of Joe Rosen's Gen I big-block Camaros: the SS-454 '69 Camaro built late in the model year when 427s were starting to be replaced by 454s. Check it out @ https://www.amazon.com/Day-One-Autom...7H7GY10CR0EEMG

To the Jim Thornton imposter:

Marty, I'm up to 1966. GREAT job!

I'll be sending you an email as a follow-up.

Verne

Maybe this should have been the subtitle: "An autobiography of a guy who got paid to thrash the daylights out of Detroit's Muscle"

I let Jim Thornton know about it and he thought it was hilarious! Glad you're enjoying it Verne. Marty

Loved the book. Read it cover to cover over the Christmas holidays. The stories are priceless and you won't find anywhere else. Really recommend it.

Martyn,

Speaking of the 454's - Mark Hassett just got his BM prepared for its first public display at the Erie, PA New car vintage car invitational-- since Mark acquired the car.

The Rosen cars all have unique stance, and your book has it covered!
