    My kids (girl-18 and boy-15) get a big kick out of when I put an album on the turntable.
    At least they like my old rock and roll. Glad to see I'm not the only old fart on board either.

    There was no 1978 Berlinetta.
    Do you mean a 79?

    Another tie on the old fart(age),born in 58.

    But also boring old fart...purchased a 79 RS Camaro summer of 1982. Still rolls between my garage and driveway. Occasionally goes for a Yomp.
    I have only ever been distracted by a 68 RS convertible, which turned out to be a bit more of a dog than I realised.

    But then Camaros don't grow on trees in this neck of the woods, or side of the pond.

    My brother had a 74 Z28 that started my addiction learned how to drive in a 78 4 speed SC. I still can see tsruH in the palm of my right hand.
    69 SC still have
    82 Z28 long gone
    95 Z28 First car I ordered from factory 6,200 miles and will never sell!
    92 RS Herritage ED.Camaro grave yard in the sky
    78 LT sold it
    81 SC looking to sell
    81 Z28 Shell might get put back together someday.
    69 Another SC my latest toy that I hope to have back on the road by the end of summer.
    Hope to find a 88 sunset orange IROC and then I will be done. Yeah right!
