Kim:
What year would that have been? I was at his garage in the mid 70's in Fort Madison when he was selling speed parts out of it. A green Camaro seems right, but it might just be the power of suggestion.....

The 69 he bought new, that's why I think it was in 68 or early 69 he would had that car.

The 69 was a 375HP car it's still around. I think I know where the 68 is.

Back in 69 Tommy bought my 67 ss350 (turq color) to setup for racing. Heard later he dropped a 427 in it but never saw it again.

That 68 pictured here, his wife put it on its top I think. I know she put one on its top in a powder puff race about that time.
