Inthewoods: This is the same year (1970) Camaro that I had, mine was a SS, not the Z-28, nice car... 350-300 small block with a close ratio 4-speed, I bought it from the original owner with low miles, he bought it for his wife, but she didn't like it... ... The one I had was all blue




Some sad news...
3-Time Indy 500 Winner Bobby Unser Dies at Age 87

Bobby Unser was born Feb. 20, 1934, in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and moved with his family as a child to New Mexico. His father owned a garage along Route 66 and he his brother grew up tooling around in old jalopies before he began his racing career in 1949 at Roswell New Mexico Speedway.

After two years in the U.S. Air Force from 1953 to 1955 — a stint for which he was always proud — Unser turned to racing full time and became one of the greatest racers in Indianapolis Motor Speedway history.

He was one of just 10 drivers to win the 500 at least three times, and Unser and Rick Mears are the only drivers to win the 500 in three different decades. Unser was one of six members of the Unser family to race in the Indianapolis 500.
