Hello From Chicago

I'm not totally new to this site...I've been a member since 2005, but this is actually my first or second post. I've been dabbling on the team chevelle site, but enjoy Camaros as well. Hope there are other Camaro guys in the Chicagoland area...

The bug bit me at age 5 (I'm 36 years old now) when my older brother bought a 71 RS/Z28 LT1 M22
After about 22 or so years, we were re-united with the car...

There is another Camaro that touched my life 25 + years ago...
A 1968 RS/SS 396/350 Grotto blue/Parchment (white) interior...
When my bro., Peter Cruz, sold the car, we lived in Northwest Indiana. It was in red primer and sold to a 22 year old guy in Lowell Indiana? It was raced at US 30 drag strip in Indiana... It was one quick mother, and still sported its original drive train when sold. Last I knew, the car was still in Indiana...Here is the VIN:

VIN: 124378N393656.

If you or anyone you know owns this car, please let me know. I know the history of this car back to its original owner. Not to mention that I would love to see her once again


Thanks
Orlando Cruz

Re: Hello From Chicago

US 30 drag strip was the place where the hot rodders got together for fun.
Now its 41 drag strip, Joliet drag strip or Byron...

Anyhow, thank you for the warm welcome

Re: Hello From Chicago

Hey Orlando , like you I caught the muscle car bug early in life.
It started when I was 8 years old when my big brother took me to U.S. 30 drag strip for the first time, and I was hooked.
That was such a cool place.
7 years later we moved to Wisconsin but I'll never forget all the cruising down Western blvd. on the south side and car shows in Chicago.

Re: Hello From Chicago

Wow,

Jerry that is exactly what happened to me. It all started at US 30 drag strip and the cruise nights at the famous "Blue Top Drive In" in Highland Indiana.

I like your 68. Thanks for sharing your website
