I am proud to say I am a new owner of a car that I wanted since I was 8 years old. I wasn't totally sure if I should post here in pro-touring or I should post in project updates. So the moderator is welcome to move it if need be.
I realize for you Camaro purists that this may be a big no no as I wanted to go with the pro-touring look. A black 67 RS Camaro. Since I was a little kid watching Better Off Dead and the seen where he cleans up his 67 and the garage door slowly opens to reveal that RS grill. Bad ***. I will never forget that seen. Now it is something that I relive each time I go for a drive.
For the past year and a half I have looked daily on the net for the right car for me. After driving to a few states and looking at about 20 of them. I even lost a deposit and a flight ticket for one. But it all worked out in the end.
After having identical twin girls in December I thought for sure that it just wasn't in the cards. But it just goes to show that hard work pays off.
