General Information

Gulfstream Blue
Bought this car in 1970 At RK Chevrolet in Va. Beach VA. It was traded in for a Camaro.
I have driven this car every day from day one and it has over 600,000 miles. I'm a Ex Rock & Roller and drove this car up and down the East Coast playing gigs, cramming a SUNN amp and 6-10's cabnet in the back seat and my ES335 strapped in the pass seat, and East to West coast 5 times settling in CA in '75. Quit music and learned the Auto Parts business.
As a Parts Salesman in San Diego Drove this car every day. 3 engines, 4 tranys, 2 rear ends. I love this car.
