The Camaro looks great and brings back memories.

I had a '68 SS/RS 396/375 HP. Turquoise with a white convertible top.

I have never seen another with an original 396/375 engine.

I'd like to do a thread on our travels this summer, where would be the best place to put it?

Another thing I got if you're interested is a pictoral on rebuilding a powergear hydraulic jack pump, plus some good info on testing and troubleshooting this system.
There is a blog section here. Hit the blog button in the turquoise line above.

Love that MG Dick!!
Always had a soft spot for thise lil british cars, Jag xk120 was also a favorite. One of my shipmates in the USN years ago had an MGB, we lifted the motor out by hand and rebuilt it on the kitchen table, then hand carried it back down the stairs and in between the fenders!

When I was a kid, my dad had an XK120. Years later, he got an XK150. Cool cars.

There's a few of us "pre-retirees" here

Hi Jim,
I'm sure you'll fit in just fine-we recently joined and have found the site to have a supportive and welcoming feel to it. We're still several years from retirement but inherited an RV this summer that we're loving. Enjoy the rig and the car-both are beauties!

Take Care!
Diane

I was on the Worden for a brief time when it was called a DLG. Small world. She must be getting old by now. I was in Fox Mike Division, worked Weapons Direction Equipment near CIC. I can remember parts of libertys in Subic. Couldn't get drunk fast enough. We would spend 3 days in Hong Kong and two weeks in Subic Bay, go figure.

Dick

Nice ride there Jim, I also have a Camaro, mine is a '69 Z-28 DZ302 car, tuxedo black (10 code) , with black/ white houndstooth interior. Sorry no rag top here, if it was it wouldn't be a real Z-28...

Like wow, this is a small world indeed, giving me goosebumps...

Worden was a light cruiser when I served, CG18 I think?
I was an FTM, work the forward 55B radar for the sparrow missiles. Our control room was down below just behind the missile magazine, but that big director on top of the bridge was mine.

There is a facebook group for worden crewmembers.

Sad to say, she was sunk as a target quite some years ago.

John, are you a member at Team Camaro (Team Camaro at Camaros.net Camaro Internet Resource) perchance?
THE place on the net for firstgen camaro lovers, my name is JimM there, I'm one of the mods.
One of our members, goes by "wagonman" built the second Z28 Camaro convertible a couple years ago, the first was built by Chevrolet engineering and given to Pete Estes to help get the Z28 approved for production. John "wagonman"s car is incredible, it got a big spread in hemmings last year,a beautiful clone.
