This photo was taken in the summer of 1984. The only reason I recall the date is because it is printed on the back of the picture. That summer, we must have put a thousand miles on her. Trips to the beach, riding around and looking for friends to hang out with, doing donuts in the school parking lot, driving REALLY fast with my girlfriends in the car (Hey, they dared me to. It wasn't MY idea) - those were the days.
Eventually, adult responsibilities forced The Surveyor to sell his beloved. We had a mortgage, two dogs and a baby. There wasn't much room left in our lives for the old girl. She had been sitting in the yard, neglected, for quite a while. It was a sad day when she drove away for the last time. I believe there were tears.
The Surveyor is currently watching the internet in hopes of finding a new love. Evidently, '69 Camaros have become collector's items, and we will need to take out a second mortgage and sell our child when he finds one he would like to purchase. He's not giving up hope!
By the way, did I ever tell you about the time I auditioned for a White Snake video? Or was it "Flashdance"?
Before you leave, don't forget to VOTE. The Surveyor has asked that he now be referred to as "Cool Breeze" on this site. I originally decided to name him The Surveyor because, well, he's a land surveyor. Duh! We have a friend who has called him Cool Breeze forever, and he just likes that name better than the one his loving wife chose for him. I told him that I would put it out there for a vote, and we would go with the majority. Fair enough. I'll post the results tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by. Do you know of anyone who would trade a '69 Camaro for land surveying services? Just asking.
