What is it?

Several weeks ago, we ran the photo of a vintage Ford Mustang, so to be fair, last week we ran a vintage Chevrolet Camaro, at right. It was a 1968 model, as many readers knew.


The first reader to identify the pony car coupe was Bob Hottel, of Aiken.

Other readers who knew it was a 1968 Camaro include the following: Wayne Martin, Carl Miller, Mike Sanders and Woody Shuler, all of Augusta; Nick Churillo, Eric C. Howell, Buddy Keip, Buddy Pruitt, Charlie Stone and Marc Valentine, all of Evans; Carrie Blackburn and Mike Jefferson, both of Graniteville; Chris Carroll, of Grovetown; Jr. Branham, of Hephzibah; Chris Leitza, of Martinez; David Frazier and Malcolm Stonehill, both of North Augusta; and Bob Dandridge and Murray Yoder, both of Wagener.

We also should mention Richard Culpepper, of Martinez, and Mike Smith, of Grovetown, who said it was a 1968 Pontiac Firebird, the Camaro's near-identical twin, especially when seen from the side view that was shown last week.

Many readers knew it was a first-generation Camaro but thought it might be a 1967 or 1969 (again, they were so much alike): Danny Fulmer, Bill Harding, Kenneth and Ellen Holmes. Kirk Jackson, Joe Johnson, Shannon LaBorde, Mike Laird, Manny Klar, Sandra Martin, Carl Miller, Tommy Seay and Wayne Wilke.

Other guesses included General Motors products with similar outlines, including the Oldsmobile Cutlass, Chevrolet Chevelle, and Pontiac Grand Prix and GTO, along with Chrysler products such as the Dodge Challenger and Charger and Plymouth Road Runner.

Thanks, all you car enthusiasts. Next, we'll go back to the future with the What Is It? photo at right. This window is from what 2008 vehicle? E-mail your guess to glynn.moore@augustachronicle.com, or call (706) 823-3419 and leave a detailed message.

IMPORTANT: Please tell us how to spell your name and don't forget to include your city and telephone number.

The deadline is noon Wednesday. The names of correct guessers will run Friday, and the first to identify What Is It? will get a gift from The Chronicle.
