Hello

I'm from the Houston Texas area. I don't have a Camaro at the present, but I'm always keeping an eye out for my old car. I'm pretty active in the classic truck area, building a bagged 71 C-10 with a 67 clip right now. Any how, here's my story.

I have loved the 67 Camaro ever since I can remember. I dreamed of having a 1967 RS/SS 350 the whole time I was a kid. When it came time to start looking for my first car I poured over hundreds of dollars worth of Auto Traders in search of the perfect one. Oddly enough, I accidentally found it in a Greensheet(free newspaper) only a few miles from my house. It was a 1967 SS 350, maroon with maroon velvet interior. It had been a drag car at one point and put back on the street. It had a 350/TH350, cowl hood, aftermarket air and that was about it. My Dad and I made the purchase when I was 14 and I spent several months cleaning it up and working out all of the bugs. Things happened and he sold before I turned 16 so I was never actually able to enjoy it. I kept track of it through the next two owners, I tried to buy it back from the second after me but he refused to sell. I used to stop by and check in regularly until one day they were gone. That was the last I saw of the car and haven't been able to track it down since. I still keep in touch with the guy I bought it from but haven't seen the guys after me in years. I plan to have another 67 some day, hopefully it will be the car I cut my teeth building. If you think you may know the car or where it is I'd love to know, even if it isn't for sale I'd still like to keep track of where it is. It had white stripes centered down the middle of the cowl hood. The spoiler was bondoed? to the decklid. I can't really think of anything that would set it apart from any others. I'm not even sure if it was a real SS 350. I'll get a few pics up later, I still have one framed and sitting on my nightstand Sorry for the long winded story. Thanks for reading.
The vin is 124377L118967 and the plate number was 2XK97M as far as I know.
