'71 Camaro SS Tim Charette Warwick, RI It's been an on-and-off project since 1992, so Tim Charette's had plenty of time to daydream about all the drives he wants to take in his Camaro. A fall foliage run on a country road, early morning coffee runs with the dog, taking his son to sports practice, hanging out at the Dairy Queen bs'ing with other car guys-you name it. Tim just wants to drive it. Thankfully it shouldn't be too much longer now; the bodywork is finished and the PPG Deltron basecoat/clearcoat blue should be laid on it by the time you read this.

'72 Ventura Bonnie Johnson-Hines Davenport, IA Novas are everywhere, but how many Venturas have you seen lately? Bonnie Johnson-Hines' husband actually has a matching-numbers '71 Ventura and while getting some new tires put on he was tipped off to a '72 for sale locally. The next day he and Bonnie were hauling it home as a project for her. Since this one isn't a resto candidate, Bonnie wants a fast street/strip Ventura. For now she'll build the 350 that's currently in the car, but there is a tempting big-block in the garage that could get the nod down the road.
