2018 Woodward Dream Cruise: Cruising With Mr. Camaro, Al Oppenheiser

Motor Trend Logo Motor Trend | Slide 2 of 6: His 1968 Camaro SS convertible with the plate MY 6T8 was originally white with a black bumblebee stripe, but the original owner painted it red. Al bought it in 2004 and changed it to black with white bumblebee stripe. It has the original 250-hpm 350-cubic-inch small-block V-8, original transmission, original front disc and drum brakes. He has Cragars and Radial T/A Goodrich tires. It was his first rebuild from the ground up, a learning experience he wanted to share with his kids. He has a picture of his 10-year-old son under the car, working on it. For that reason, "I'm never going to sell it." He drives the convertible as much as he can and has only had the top up three times: to test it when he bought it, when he put the car together, and once when he got caught in a deluge during the Woodward Dream Cruise. "I'll be buried in this car," he says.
