Default Hey Dakota!

Wifes making me clean out some storage room stuff for space and I'm tranfering all the junk I have off and old Celeron 566Mhz computer. Found a picture of my old red '84 Camaro. Only digital pic I have of it. This was back in 96 when you could have them make you a floppy as well as your prints.

That'* not even that old, that would be in the days of 3" floppies. Now if you find it on a 5" or 8" that would be impressive.

Came with a 2.8L w/5 speed. Left with a Buick 350ci/Super Turbine 400 Hydramatic out of a '69 Sport Wagon. It was middle-aged when I put it in and all used up by the time the frame rusted through. Watch out for rot behind the gas tank. I never saw it coming when I hit a set of RR tracks hard and the body came down on those Cragar Slots.
