    Pleased to see that it's still the same and is being kept that way.
    Especially after The Artful Dodger was restored to stock

    I am sooooooo pleased to see that. After Mick died, Bruce Screen, who knew Mick well bought the car, mainly as he wanted the blown smallblock to complete the Andy's Instant T C Cab that he owned. Under Jon Bonham's (someone Bruce also knew) ownership, the original Cub Barnett blown motor that Andy Brizio had in the truck was swapped into Bonham's Vette. When Bruce bought the T from Alan Spittle it still had the normally aspirated motor that was in it when Alan bought it from Jon. The whole saga of Alan selling the car, then buying it back from the same owner twenty years later, before selling it to Bruce, could keep us here all night, suffice to say, the T, though practically stored on a plastic bubble, is alive and kicking. What's great is that when Bruce first acquired Mick's Camaro, another member on here, Hi Nige, was interested in what became of the rolling shell. My enquiries to Bruce seemed to indicate that the car was destined for a 'straight' repaint.

    Thank God it never happened.

    That brings back a thousand memories of the late great Mick Cooke, the most capable man I ever knew and I have been lucky enough to know some capable guys.
    I travelled with Mick and Maria in the Camaro, me and Sue in the '33 Plymouth and latter '57 Chevy. We drove mad everywhere, sometimes the Camaro was in front and sometimes in my mirror.
    I could tell a hundred stories (make that a thousand).
    Rog.
    If some's good, more's better and too much is just enough

    Bloody hell, always loved this car (as I did Street Fighter and the St Louis Blues second gen). These cars are as much a part of the history as the Graffiti Coupe and California Kid.
    Eight Misbehavin' is mentioned in there too, which I think is the blue Camaro still pounding the strip these days???

    Rog, tell the stories you feel able to. As we've learned, life's too short. Some of the stupid stuff we all got up to 'back in the day' (how irritating is that phrase?) will be lost forever unless we retell it. I know Nick wil itemise every tiny detail.
