The Camaro from "Better off Dead" found and restored

The late, great Lane Meyer, played by John Cusack in the 1985 flick Better Off Dead, made sweet on Monique over the engine bay of a 1967 Camaro.

Jeff was so taken with the car that he tracked it down, despite the fact that the man who owned it during the filming of the movie had sold it. It was in pretty rough shape, with a tacked-on spoiler, the beginning of rust creeping in, and lots of cracked interior vinyl.

Jeff put together a web site telling how he tracked the Camaro down, complete with unnecessary quotes from the movie playing in the background while you read it.

You might remember it from the scene where John Cusack races the asian dudes in their rusted out ghetto sled(Muddy Waters playing in the background.) restored it.
