about a month ago I was able to purchase a 70 Ls6 Monaco orange Chevelle. Once I got the car I went through the thick three ring binders with paperwork I got the original owners name and was able to find him living in san diego. The magazine article and all the notes written by previous owners stated Mr Peru ordered the car. I called the number I found for him and before I was done leaving a message on his machine he picked up! He was more than willing to speak to me about the car and one of the first things I asked was what made him order the car that way and to my surprise he didn't order it! He was about to be stationed in pearl harbor (he was a submariner) and really wanted a hemi cuda but the dealer couldn't guarantee he'd get the car before he left. So to Bradley Chevrolet he went. He said when he got there they had 5 LS6 chevelles on the lot this was in October of 1970 he couldn't remember all 5 colors green yellow and the orange are the ones he could. He Drove the car all over sold it once in 74 and got it back. He said the reason he sold it in 1977 was gas quality had gotten so poor he couldn't really drive the car anymore and had a corvette and a hemi cuda at that time so the Chevelle went. I mailed him some photos of the car and the January 2002 muscle car review issue it appeared in. he called me once he received the photos and said he thought hed neber see it again and said he felt like a bit of a celebrity having his name in the magazine. I told him if he ever wants to know how the car is doing or just wants to talk cars not to hesitate to call me he said hes gonna dig up some photos of the car and send me a few from his time with it! I love these cars but knowing the history and talking to previous owners or just guys who were around when they were new is my favorite part!
