I’ve been admiring the Chevrolet Malibu for quite some time and finally decided to go ahead and make a sensible purchase. »
First off, let me say that I think it’s nice that Chevy brought a Red Hot Z06 up to their truck event in central California, but it would be a whole lot nicer if they would let me get some time behind the wheel in it. »

On Saturday September 26, the Columbia River Camaro Club held another fanatic driving event. Called the 3 Capes Tour where we left Portland,Oregon and headed west to the coast and visited the Tillamook Air Museum. The museum is held in a WW2 blimp hanger.

Time for another round of design details...

You know, those little orange and red shiny strips that are… »
