Tomorrow's going to be a sad day for me -- my project car ('78 Camaro LT) will be leaving my garage for good and going to a better home. I just haven't found the time or money to do anything with it and as a result it has occupied garage space for 10 years now. While talking to the dealer about the status of my order (now looks like mid-April delivery) I mentioned that I had a car that I needed to get out of the garage. I'm having a contractor come by to replace the garage doors and I'll then be working on getting the garage in shape as a suitable nest for the Ody, so the old girl's gotta go. I priced it to move, which is to say -- free. Yep, come by and get it out of the garage and give it a good home and the title's yours. The salesman I'm working with passed the info around the shop and I had a call back in short order. A guy that works in the service department wanted it, and he's pretty happy about the deal even though the car's going to need a lot of work (some body work, paint, interior, engine rebuild, etc.). Of course, who wouldn't be happy about a free car, eh?


So now I have a new friend in the dealer service dept. that owes me one or two favors, and the Camaro will finally get back on the road where she belongs.

At one point I thought about gutting it and turning it into a dirt track car and go racing at Battleground, but for some reason my better (and often smarter) half vetoed that idea. <sigh>

I have 2 similar stories:

(1) My first car was a '77 Camaro. I bought it from its original owner in April, 1982. Did the typical intake/headers/fat tires gearhead kid stuff to it. I parked it in very good condition in 1987 when I joined the Navy and it hasn't moved an inch since then. My Father keeps bugging me to come and get it but I don't have room since we have a '79 Corvette as a third car.

(2) The first car that my Wife and I bought together was a 1985 Camaro. It was like a family pet to us. We sold it last year after 218,000 miles.
