Throw Back Thursday – 1971 Camaro
This is a photo from 1976, in front of USCGC SHACKLE, when I was on the buoy tender in South Portland (depending on when the photo was taken) I was getting ready to go on liberty and had parked there. It seemed like a good photo and showed Portland in the back ground.
The car was my 1971 Camaro after a paint job by my Gramp and a new engine that Jimmy McGinnis put in (that 350 4 barrell, sure could fly). It was one of the most unreliable cars that I ever bought and I learned a LOT about car repairs, but it sure looked good and as a 18-19 year old kid driving around in it sure was fun.
Looking at this photo brings back a lot of memories, good times, bad times and more than a few smiles.
