Kevin M’s 1969 Camaro RS/Z28

Built From The Ground Up

Kevin M’s 1969 Camaro RS/Z28

Kevin’s had this 1969 Camaro RS Z/28 since he was in high school in 1980, purchasing it from a gentleman in his home town.

He used the Camaro as a driver for several years, as well as enhancing it as he saw fit during that time. Eventually it was in an accident and was parked for several years.

The Camaro was relegated to the back burner as important life events began to unfold. First it was engagement, followed by marriage, kids, school, university, and weddings. Fast forward many years and Kevin and his wife decided it was finally about time to restore the tired and forgotten Camaro in 2013.

The restoration was targeted to begin by 2015. The husband and wife received the finished Camaro back from restoration by 2017, and Kevin had a rebuilt 350 small block with the original 302 crank shaft ready to drop into the refurbished ’69 in it’s fresh Lemans Blue with black stripes.

This Camaro is a special part of Kevin’s life because he and his wife originally dated while he was daily driving it. They’ve been married for about 35 years all the while holding onto the car. Now he gets to cruise with the grand kids and enjoys showing it off at local events.
