Everyone knows Dan from DD Speed Shop for all his Tri-Five Chevrolet builds but did you guys know he has a couple of First Gen Camaros? Yep, and he’s about to start saving one that is all full of rust. It’s like Dan just can’t keep from cutting off rust and welding on new, or at least better, sheet metal. We don’t understand his passion for this kind of punishment, but love him for saving great cars. We’re all in the same boat with the same sickness.
I’ve wanted a first generation Camaro for years. Last summer I had the opportunity to buy a PAIR or Camaros and a pile of replacement sheet metal. It was an all or nothing deal, so clearly I went all in.
The pair was a ratty1967 and a partially stripped and restored 1968.
My preference was the 1967 so that is what we dragged home to save. It’s a rough, rough car but we can save this car and get her back on the road by spring!
