krupp-camaro-grab.jpgEdwin C. Krupp, the longtime director of Griffith Observatory, bought his 1968 Chevrolet Camaro new when he was a grad student. He still drives the manual shift three-speed to work every day. It's got 479,000 miles on it — enough to go to the moon and back — and the straight-6 engine is on its third rebuild. No power steering, brakes or windows: "just a power driver," Krupp tells Dave Kunz for a feature on ABC 7. If the video above doesn't work, here's the link.
