I still remember the commercial. Sitting in front of my TV as a 9 year old boy and seeing that volcano....and seeing my first Camaro appear from the smoking Lava...I was amazed! It was the most beautiful car I had ever seen! I still remember turning to my dad and telling him I wanted on of those one day. The commercial featured a butternut yellow RS/SS and it is still seared in my mind.
Through the years I have own various vehicles, but the first generation Camaro was always my passion. I decided several years ago to join the Pro Touring movement after attending a Good Guys show here in Scottsdale, AZ. And my dream came true! I found an old racing 1967 Camaro and had it turned into my dream car. And the year it was finished, it won "Cool Camaro" honors at the 2012 Good Guys Southwest Nationals!
I now am the proud owner of a 1969 SS350 Camaro convertible and a 2013 Camaro 1LE. Both of my first Gens are insured by the best - Hagerty!
I owe all of this to that commercial back in 1966...
