Going Platinum

Ron Carper’s gorgeous ’67 RS Convertible makes its debut at the Cleveland Rocks Chevy Show.

Growing up in northern Michigan, I was always fascinated with cars. When I was a teenager I hung out at one of the gas stations in our small town. The owner asked me if I wanted to help tear apart a motor he was working on, so I ended up doing my first engine job at the age of 14. That experience kick-started my desire to work on cars.

After graduating high school, I purchased that gas station and owned it for a few years. Then I went to work for General Motors in Flint, MI. In my spare time I was still overhauling motors and working on cars. In 1983, I transferred to the GM plant in Marion, IN.
