The Beasts

Wendy has had The Beauty for four years, three months, and a few days. She's had The Beast for about a quarter century. It's a '72, over 180,000 miles and still mostly original. Had new front sheet metal circa 1980, a rebuilt 4-bolt 350 circa 1990. Recently replaced seat belts as the dog had chewed the originals. Yeah, that's her checking out the cameraman. Pepper Anne. Loves riding in the Camaro, harnessed in the back seat, hanging out the window.

I am quite impressed with the paint job. It has been about 15 years since Wendy covered the car with several rattlecans of Rustoleum Rusty Metal Primer. That stuff has held up better than a lot of factory paint jobs.
