Growing up, Better off Dead with John Cusack was one of my favorite movies, and I absolutely loved the 67 SS Camaro he had in it. The scene where he has the car fully restored and pulls out of the garage, while Mannish Boy by Muddy Waters is playing is priceless. Anyways, here is a website of a guy that tracked down that car after 20 years, bought it, and restored it, and now shows it, really cool. Enjoy it, I did.

Thanks for the website Shawn, I read every word. I, too, love that movie and especially the Camaro ('67 RS/SS is my favorite 1st gen). I always wondered about that car. When I went to Hot August Nights a few weeks ago, the cast and cars from American Graffiti were there. It's cool to see the actual Milner coupe, Ron Howard's '58 Impala, Falfa's (and 2 Lane Blacktop's) '55 Chevy, etc.

Monique Junot: He keeps putting his testicles all over me.
Lane Myer: Excuse me?
Monique Junot: You know, like octopus? Testicles?
Lane Myer: Ohhhh. Tentacles. N-T. Big Difference.

Lane Myer: Sorry Johnny, I don't have a dime.
Johnny: Didn't ask for a dime. Two dollars.
Lane Myer: My little brother got his arm stuck in the microwave. So my mom had to take him to the hospital. My grandma dropped acid this morning, and she freaked out. She hijacked a busload of penguins. So it's sort of a family crisis. Bye!
[slams the door shut]

Paperboy: Two dollars!

Charles De Mar: This is pure snow! Do you have any idea what the street value of this mountain is?

Charles De Mar: Greendale is a bodaciously small town, Lane. A fly speck on the map - a rest stop on the way to the ski slope. I can't even get real drugs here!
[holds up a bottle of whipped cream]

Charles De Mar: Suicide is never the answer, little trooper.

Charles De Mar: And dying when you're not really sick is really sick, you know. Really!

Charles De Mar: I've been going to this high school for seven and a half years. I'm no dummy. I know high school girls.

Charles De Mar: [giving skiing instructions] Go that way, really fast. If something gets in your way, turn.

Mailman: What's a little boy like you doing with big boy smut like this?

[Lane waves to two tree trimmers from the cargo hold of a garbage truck.]
Tree Trimmer: [to fellow tree trimmer] Now that's a real shame when folks be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that.

Lane Myer: Gee, I'm real sorry your mom blew up, Ricky.

Lane Myer: [indicating to Mrs. Smith's accident] Gee, I'm really sorry your mom blew up, Ricky, guess she won't be able to eat any spicy foods for awhile.

Charles De Mar: You ski the K-12 dude, and girls will go sterile just looking at you!

Johnny: I want my two dollars!

Jenny Myer: [regarding the blob of food] It's got raisins in it... you like raisins.

Lane Myer: She only speaks French, Roy. She doesn't speak imbecile.

Lane Myer: Two brothers... One speaks no English, the other learned English from watching "The Wide World of Sports." So you tell me... Which is better, speaking no English at all, or speaking Howard Cosell?

Charles De Mar: Wait, wait a minute...
[starts to snort snow off his top hat]
Charles De Mar: [sniff] Oh.
Charles De Mar: Oh! Ugh! Outrageous! This is pure snow! It's everywhere!
[raises right hand]
Charles De Mar: [shouts] I think I just froze the left half of my brain!
[waves arm in circles]
Charles De Mar: [shouts] Look! I can't move my right arm!
Lane Myer: This isn't funny, Charles! If I don't have a dream, I have nothing!
Charles De Mar: Ah, come on! It's Christmas Eve! I could be home right now, drinking this *monster* eggnog my brother makes with lighter fluid.

Lane Myer: [Indicates Monique] Her?
Mrs. Smith: Mm-hmm.
Lane Myer: [Indicates Ricky] And him?
Mrs. Smith: Mmmm-hm.
Lane Myer: That makes sense.

Lane Myer: I have great fear of tools. I once made a birdhouse in woodshop and the fair housing committee condemned it. I can't.
Monique Junot: "I cannot do it" is your middle name.

Monique Junot: I think all you need is a small taste of success, and you will find it suits you.

Monique Junot: So you won't tell anyone?
Lane Myer: What, that you're a Dodgers fan?

Charles De Mar: Buck up little camper, we'll beat that slope together.

Rocko: You look pretty stupid to me.
Lane Myer: Thank you.

Roy Stalin: You'd make a fine little helper. What's your name?
Charles De Mar: Charles De Mar.
Roy Stalin: Shut up, geek.

Mrs. Smith: [Imploring her son to fight with Lane] Ricky, do something to him!

Lane Myer: [talking about skiing the K-12] Look Charles, I gotta do this. If I don't, I'll be nothing. I'll end up like my neighbor Ricky Smith. He just sits around crocheting all day and snorting nasal spray.
Charles De Mar: He snorts nasal spray? Know where I can score some?

Charles De Mar: [about Lane] Man, you're the hottest thing since sunburns!

Jenny Myer: Hello Lane. How was your day?
Lane Myer: Beth broke up with me.
Jenny Myer: Oh, heh, that's nice.

Roy Stalin: Alright, who wants to hold my clipboard?
[Beth raises her hand]
Roy Stalin: Well you'll make a fine little helper. What's your name?
Charles De Mar: [Thinking Roy has referenced him] Charles De Mar!
Roy Stalin: Shut up, geek.
[to Beth]
Roy Stalin: What's YOUR name?

Yee Sook Ree: Truly a sight to behold. A man beaten. The once great champ, now, a study in moppishness. No longer the victory hungry stallion we've raced so many times before, but a pathetic, washed up, aged ex-champion.
Lane Myer: Alright let's go!

I love that movie by the way...

Mike, I agree with you, Diane Franklin is hot, but that totally pissed me off what she did in last american virgin. I do love that black 67 with the red interior Camaro, what a freaking awesome car

That guy was a member at Team Camaro for a while. He posted a few times while he was doing the resto. If you read the website he says the guy he bought it from didn't know the cars history. He just told the guy who had the car that it had sentimental value to a friend of his.
