Dan Maughmer's 87 Aerocoupe
Dan goes by "minotaur15" on the Message Board and in the Chat Channel. The Aero is the second MCSS in the family, currently owned by Dan's mother (later to be his), and a beauty indeed. They found it with 25k original miles for a mere $7000 - a good price for even a notchback SS. It has run a 16.08 @ ~86 MPH as tested by a G-Tech with an additional passenger, so it might break the 16 second barrier with only a driver doing the testing. Not a bad time for a stock Aero! Additional pictures can be seen on Dan's website at

Walter Chapman's 87 Aerocoupe
Walter bought this car early in the winter of 1988. It was a demo with 4500 miles on it being one of three Aerocoupes they had left. The sales manager at the local chevy dealership had it. He had driven it to Earnhardt Chevrolet and Dale had been at the dealership that day and the salesman had spoke to Earnhardt and he saw the car and commented that he was driving "one of his cars", which makes it a little special (maybe)? It does to Walter anyway, as Dale was his favorite NASCAR driver. Walter will never forget the pass in the grass in the "Wrangler" car. The car now has a little over 32,000 miles on it. The only thing he's done to it is changed tires to 235R6015 TA's. Right Side View

New Darryl Rios' White 87 Aerocoupe
Darryl's Aerocoupe has just over 217,000 miles now. Still has original 305HO engine, the only thing he's changed is the timing chain, and the normal wear and tear items. The original alternator just went out at 197,000 miles, so he can't complain. The only thing he wants to do to this car is to get it painted back to the original white, you know the mid 80's GM paint wasn't the best. He has a 6 disc CD player under the seat hooked up to the original radio. He drives this car hard everytime they go out, maybe that's why she has lasted so long.
