My 69 Camaro was the second car I bought, I was 19 years old. It had a 3 speed that was fun to drive. A friend taught me how to tune my car, and I did all the maintenance on it. I always had a car load of people, and usually had the top down. I had the car about 10 years and never had a major problem with it. My memory of the car was that the starter solenoid would go out almost every winter. I spent many winters on my back under the car changing the solenoid. When you are young you don't mind doing jobs like that. It was really a fun time in my life.
