DALE CITY, Virginia — Lisa and Tony Taylor, of Dale City, Virginia, own these two Chevrolet Camaro’s.

Lisa Taylor was born and raised in Van Wert.

“I’ve always been a bowtie girl who loves all classics but always loved the ‘69 Camaro body style,” Taylor said.

She has owned this viper red 1969 Chevrolet Camaro since 2014 and has nicknamed her Miss Behavin. Lisa’s favorite memory of the car is when it was featured in Super Chevy Magazine and was selected as Editor’s Choice at the Petersburg, Virginia, Super Chevy Show in 2014.

“Seeing your car in a prestigious magazine is an exciting thing plus will be memories I’ll cherish forever,” Taylor said.

Her husband, Tony, owns the 1967 Chevy Camaro. He has owned it since 2006, and enjoys taking it to car shows all over the United States. Tony has nicknamed his car “The Money Pit.”

The couple’s biggest enjoyment was bringing both cars back to Van Wert and driving them in the Peony Festival Parade, where family and friends could see their classics on the road.
