I took a bunch of pictures yesterday at Toy Barn for the insurance company to register the 1979 Camaro Z28 as an antique.


March 12, 2022- Toy Barn putting on new breaks and tires.

Update March 9, 2023-

I had a very bad experience with Toy Barn. They overcharged me ten-fold. I transferred the car to to Performance Auto Spa in Plain City. They did a great job getting the oxidized paint looking good. They also fixed a torn seat and stained dash.

However, I am afraid it will need a new paint job. I think that my brother started to repaint it decades ago and buffed the original paint too thin.

It is now being stored 37-miles away in Springfield while I live in Florida. The storage owner is a car enthusiast and we might work on finishing the project.

    I had a S class Mercedes. Beautiful car, very quiet, very comfortable but far too expensive to maintain and service. Bought a Lexus. Not nearly as pretty but absolutely trouble-free.
    Long ago I had a 1968 Z28 Camaro. Crazy fast car, fun to drive. Muncie 4 speed. Should never have sold it but it got about 8 miles to the gallon.

    Beautiful! I know the thrill of bringing a cast off vehicle back to life. 1973 Nova from ugly to stunning! Way fun to drive! I would post pics but can’t. Painted Orange Fury….
