The Camaro would stay with Paul’s old boss for the following 25 years, with him maintaining the car and keeping it roadworthy. One day, he asked Paul if he thought Patty would ever want the Camaro back. Paul figured that she would, so he told him to give her a call to work out a deal. Amazingly, he was offering to outright give the Camaro back at no charge, which was quite the deal.

While this 1969 Camaro may look relatively unmodified, it has a few quality-of-life upgrades under the sheetmetal. The factory 350 small block has been upgraded with a Holley Sniper EFI fuel system, while the factory transmission has been replaced with a modern Tremec 5-speed unit. The pair have plans to eventually refresh the interior and replace the original convertible top, along with a fresh coat of paint.
