Went to buy a used car

Purchased Camaro April 7th, 1967 for $2,975, 2dr coupe
bolero red with white stripe, deluxe black interior with
4 speed muncie. Went to buy a used car at the local chevrolet
dealer (West Plains, Mo.) and the Camaro was on the showroom floor, dealer asked 3,175 and being 17, I would need a cosigner, I told
my Dad I found a car, he asked how much, I said 3,175 he said Used!
I replied brand new, (to this day why my Dad cosigned ??) He talked
the price down to 2,975, at that time I worked in Kansas City.
I turned a rod bearing at 1,000 miles, no parts were available for the 350/295 motor, 3 weeks to get going again.
hard to believe 40 years have past and still drive my Camaro.

Keith, great story, not many who can say that they still have theirs, usually it's more like..."I used to have one just like that"

Welcome to the site, we'd love to see some pics of the car, maybe even some of it 'through the years'
