B Hill and Burd...it was an "original" Rally Sport, but who the hell really knows. There are so many phony 1st Gen Camaros running around that they aren't special anymore. When you go to a show and see five '69 Z28s that are all perfectly restored, it takes away anything special about them...people walk right past them without a glance.

But when they see something weird and untouched like Froggy, they go nuts. I have searched all over the Internet and haven't found another 1970 Camaro with a 6-cylinder and a 3-speed manual (and any 2nd Gen with that drivetrain is ultra-rare. It may be the only one left.

Hey Aussie Dave...I have been missing in action so long on here that I never saw you had posted the pics of the Citrus Green Holden Monaro...beautiful car, and THANKS! 

I thought I would post a couple of pics of what's going on with Froggy the '70 Camaro.  She is getting her hideous front seats redone...pass seat looks GREAT, and the driver's seat is getting done as I write this.  It turns out one of my neighbors, Phil Lacke owns a company that recovers seats for classic cars, boats, airplanes, and semi tractors (his biggest market is the truckers).  The bottom of the pass seat was seriously fupped duck, as the original owner's (Dodi Baker) girlfriend Nadine was apparently a LARGE woman.  I got tired of looking at the black duct tape covering it and took PUI seat covers and foam to Phil a couple of days ago.  As you can see, the result is well-worth the money ($150 per seat).

Speaking of Froggy, I am seriously considering having my body man Shawn re-do Froggy's beat-up body and maybe do the entire car.  Posted are a couple of pics 0f a Citrus Green '70 Camaro for Aussie Dave's viewing pleasure.

Wow. Talk about a bean bun.   Glad your keeping that car. 
I got to drive that car from the Packard to this old building we stopped at when Al was in town.   Fun, 3 on the tree.

Aussie Dave...sure glad I was wearing my skivvies when you looked up my kilt!  Burd...I know you're getting "Oldtimer's Disease" when you can't remember that Froggy is a 3-speed on the floor!
