I found this car parked at a meter in front of Jim's Coffee House downtown. Realizing I didn't have time to run home and get my good camera, I decided to make do with the camera in my cellphone.
The General made 230,799 Camaros for the '69 model year, compared to Ford's 299,824 Mustangs that year. A V8-equipped Camaro hardtop went for $2,727, versus $2,723 for a V8 Mustang hardtop. With both cars offering roughly similar performance (i.e., terrible handling and braking, decent acceleration), the choice for car buyers probably came down to style and/or brand preference.
This one is a bit rough, but it's purple! Good to see a Camaro that's not afraid to venture away from car shows and cruise nights.
