It did not take long for Bill Panouses to get hooked. The local East Moline, IL paper, a ’68 Camaro, and a test ride were all it took.

Feeling his heart pump wildly as the owner slammed through the gears on the test ride confirmed to Bill that there would be a time when he owned a ’68 Camaro. “It was the ride of my life!” exclaimed Bill.

Even in high school when the other kids were staying after school for sports, Bill was headed home to wrench on his cars. His first hot rod was a ’68 Chevelle SS. This was followed by everything from second and third gen Camaros to a Corvette. He never forgot his first love though: the ’68 Camaro.
