Chevrolet Camaro 1974

Post by Ross Compe » Fri Nov 26, 2010 8:38 pm

This Chevrolet Camaro was a great ride and a lot of fun.Powered by 350 cubic inch motor and a turbo 400 floor shift automatic.
This photograph was taken before it was restored and the black vinyl roof was removed.It was then converted to a hard top and the vehicle was spray painted in two pack candy red by Richard Maciejak.
Cheers
:D :D :D

Was that one of your vehicles Ross?

I thought you had an American car at one stage...

Camaro Days

Post by Ross Compe » Tue Dec 14, 2010 1:27 pm

Thanks for the reply Bob! Yeah I purchased the vehicle from one of the original owners of the Ravenswood Raceway which at the time was the only drag racing venue in Western Australia.
It became a labour of love and in the end and I really spent too much money on it but my then girl friend loved it!!

It was a wee bit difficult maintaining a low profile in it though.
I was also restoring a 1968 Triumph Trophy 650cc Motor Cycle at the same time and they were a nice pair!
I had sold a business in Rockingham and was buying and selling Camper Trailers,Caravans and spent a lot of time between fishing trips indulging myself on toys before returning to work in the waterfront container yards around Leighton Beach,Fremantle.
They were amazing days and I loved working with those guys.
