Thanks to ZOOM71 for this.
If someone did not know the difference or cars very well, could a camaro be mistaken to be a corvette? In the Al Springer tapes on cielodrive's site, the blue camaro keeps coming up...just wondering if in the 1960-70's the cars looked close..
I owned a 68 camaro (Robin Graham was 1970?). It and the corvette are both chevy made but I think very different (two seat vs four seat). I'd think the chp could keep them straight.
According to the invisionfree site (which has pictures of Robin Graham's parents) a woman came forward and let Graham's parents know that she was approached by a man while she was stranded on the freeway. The man also had a Corvette but she refused an offer for a ride. She would later identify him as Bruce Davis. Together with Graham's case we have two independent accounts of a male offering stranded woman on the freeway rides and that he had a Corvette, one even identified him by name. The Corvette was either a C1 1953-1955 Pennant blue or the 1958-1960 Turquoise or Cascade green; it may have even been a very early '60's Cascade green but I'm not sure.
No Cats, it's hard to mistake the two. The corvette and the camaro are very different looking cars. In particular, if the corvette in question was late 50's up to 1962 it was a round little roadster. The Camaro didn't come out until 1967... which makes confusing them even harder in that case.
to bad no one appears to have a picture of a corvette parked at Spahn, maybe we all need to look at the background of our spahn ranch pictures.
Hi beauders. Was there really a Corvette parked at the Spahn ranch? Where could I read up on that info?
Okay thanks for clarifying. I know nothing about cars-obviously-lol.
Robin Graham's disappearance did spawn new procedures regarding stranded motorists to be practiced by law enforcement.
i didn't mean that there was a corvette, just that maybe we should be looking at the background in pictures of spahn.
Beauders, I see. I misread you.
DebS, glad you brought up that article about the CHP changing it's policy. It's the main reason the Wikipedia entry for Robin Graham's disappearance was restored once it was deleted, that case is deemed "notable" since it caused the CHP to change policy.
There are different "Wiki" sites that share info and it would be nice if sometime in the future a "WikiMissing" type of site could be created.
