Throw Back Thursday - 1971 Camaro

After a lot of thought I have decided to move some of best of my old posts from Aging Runnah and A Runnah’s Story blogs, primarily the old reviews, maybe a few of the better posts and race reports that I have written over the years. I have a feeling that at some point, my WordPress.com blogs are simply going to go away and I want to still be able to go back and read some of the stuff I wrote.

If you are reading this blog post, that is why it is has been re-posted here.

This is a photo from 1976, in front of USCGC SHACKLE, when I was on the buoy tender in South Portland (depending on when the photo was taken) I was getting ready to go on liberty and had parked there. 

It seemed like a good photo and showed Portland in the back ground.

1971 Camaro after paint job 1976

The car was my 1971 Camaro after a paint job by my Gramp and a new engine that Jimmy McGinnis put in (that 350 4 barrell, sure could fly). 

Unfortunately, it was one of the most unreliable cars that I ever bought and I learned a LOT about car repairs, but it sure looked good and as a 18-19 year old kid driving around in it sure was fun.

Looking at this photo brings back a lot of memories, good times, bad times and more than a few smiles.
