I HATED any muscle car back in the 70's because the rich kids were running from the dealerships to the tire store for some Meats n' Mags, and calling it a Hot Rod. I was driving my '55 Chevy, and living the life. Until Aloha Bobby and Rose came out. That Camaro (in red) changed all that. I even started to like Elton Johns music
