6th Generation Camaro SS
My first new car was a 1968 Camaro RS
Almost 50 years later I decided it was time to return to my roots - before it was too late!
Garnet Red in colour this one has all the good performance options:
Many thanks to Hal Bensen at Murray Chev Cadillac in Medicine Hat Alberta for assisting me in getting the exact car I was looking for. I bought it mid February and didn't take delivery until May 3rd, but it was worth the wait and what a spectacular drive home!!
A lot has changed from my last Camaro 50 years ago, the technology in the power train, the packaging under the car of the exhaust and the suspension, the incredible performance and handling, and the safety.
I knew these cars were quick but I had to find out myself. On July 2nd I took it to St. Thomas Raceway Park and totally stock on street tires it ran a best of 12.30 at 112 mph into a strong head wind - yes it's quick!
June 2021 - still lovin' the car, added a change of wheels
1968 Camaro RS
My first new car
It was Butternut Yellow with a black vinyl top and had the Rally Sport option which added the black rocker trim, black nose stripe and hideaway headlights.
It was the first year for the Firestone Wide Oval tires, the motor was a 327 and was decently quick.
