Killer Customs/Speed Tech
While he was still a sophomore in high school, Roger Maniscalco bought this '69 Camaro. It's a pretty proud thing to carry the pink slip to a special car like this one, especially at such a young age. He picked up this jewel for a now unheard of $2,400. The car sat ignored for seven years before Roger happened upon it. Despite its loneliness, the Camaro was in great shape. There wasn't a bit of rust on it and the 350/350 drivetrain just needed a tune-up.
The cleanup process further inspired Rodger to dig deeper, and rebuild the car to how he envisioned it. He labored on the car for two full years, filling every moment of his spare time. He knew by the end of his term that his future was in the classic car industry. After graduation, the car hit the paint booth and once it emerged from those doors, he drove the car every chance he got for the next 23 years.
