The Journey

This ’67 Camaro RS went from rust bucket to show-stopper, in twenty-five years flat.

It all began with a phone call from my friend Dave. He wanted to talk about the possibility of restoring a 1967 Camaro RS convertible for a family friend of his. His friend, Karl Becker, had purchased a well-used, but original, ’67 Camaro RS convertible from a retired airline pilot in Miami. The car ran, but needed a total ground-up restoration. I told him to have Karl bring the car by my shop so we could see what we were up against.

On first glance, the RS didn’t look that bad. Digging further however, revealed that although it was all there, everything would have to be replaced or rebuilt. We agreed on an initial price and date to start the project. That was in January of 1991. Karl dropped the car off in March and Dave and I started the initial teardown.
