Faye and Paul Haynes pose with their candy apple red 1934 Chevrolet Master outside the Kershaw County Parks and Recreation Department where Paul and his fellow Camden High School Class of 1962 graduates celebrated their 55th reunion. Paul drove the car, which he bought for $65 in 1956, to graduation at Zemp Stadium. He began modernizing it during the 1980s, putting a V-8 engine under the hood, converting it from stick to automatic shift and installing air conditioning and a radio. - photo by Martin L. Cahn
“Chevy34” That was the license plate on the bright, candy apple red car parked at the Kershaw County Parks and Recreation offices off West DeKalb Street in Camden on Sept. 30. Inside the building, several dozen members of the Camden High School (CHS) Class of 1962 gathered to celebrate their 55th reunion. Among them was the car’s owner, Paul Haynes, and his wife, Faye, who graduated a year later.
