Bill Vermillion is an active duty U.S. Navy Senior Chief with 22-plus years of service. It has always been a dream of his to own a first-gen Camaro. Purchased in February 2010, with a Hugger Orange paintjob and a big-block 454 ci, it was then sent to Bonifay, Florida, where Bob handled the bodywork and sprayed the House of Kolor Sunrise Pearl. It wasn’t long before the 454 ci gave up the ghost and he swapped in a 325-plus horsepower small-block 350 ci with a Turbo 350 transmission.
