eBay helps to reunite '67 Camaro SS with rightful owner
In 2002, Matt Frame's 1967 Camaro SS was stolen from outside his hotel room. Losing such a wonderful car is bad enough, but sentimental reasons meant that the vehicle was truly irreplaceable. Purchased as a $1,000 basket case while Matt was in high school, the restoration was a father-son project; with the elder Frame later succumbing to cancer.
While searching across eBay a couple of weeks ago, though, Frame came across a familiar-looking car while browsing eBay. Located in Crystal River, FL, the current owner apparently (and understandably) denied that it was Frame's car. That is, until Frame popped the center caps to reveal his name and contact information.
This is the second story in a month that involves a first-gen Camaro and a father-son connection; in March, Anthony McCoy was reunited with the '69 Camaro that was built for him by his since-departed dad.
