Scott and Kim Lanham both grew up around classic cars. Scott's father had a Camaro, and Kim's had a variety of old cars which included Corvettes.
So, the Boyle County couple started saving for a car that both of them would like to have later. She wanted a convertible, and he wanted a 1969 Camaro. Neither wanted a project that would sit in a garage and never get finished.
Although they looked around, they could never find a 1969.
Finally, Scott found a 1968 Rally Sport Camaro convertible on a Web site and decided to take a trip to Minnesota to see if it was too good of a deal to pass up. He made sure the car's condition was perfect and e-mailed photos to Kim for her approval.
With her blessing, Scott was soon back on the road to Kentucky was a classic car on his trailer.
After driving all night to get back to Boyle County, Scott arrived just as his kids were on their way to school. Haleigh, 14, and Tori, 9, both got so excited about the car that they wanted to skip school and check it out, but that didn't happen.
