Racing Chev Camaro

Post by ZA Perana » Sat 16 Feb 2008, 19:10

Racing Camaro's are nothing new overseas but here in SA there arent too many. At the recent historic races this car caught my eye, very, very nicely turned out car that remains road legal.....

One looks at the car and there is still details from the orginal car, so in a sense the car has been carefully prepared to still be recognizeable as an orginal Camaro.

This one I think is powered by a 350 cube motor linked to a 4 speed Munchie gearbox....and whilst not being the loudest race car it sure does sound good...

Wait not for tomorrow to do what can be done today, live each day for one knows not what the next day may hold.

Tiaan you are correct it was at Zwartkops. It raced:

I'm sure it gave a few people a surprise when it turned up in Fine Cars at Killarney- road legal so it was allowed

I loved the look of the car - the fact that it still looked like a road car. And that shape of camaro is the second nicest mucle car shape ever (the 69 70 fastback mustangs are the winners of course).

I agree with u Tiaan, but think the 69 Mustangs was the beter looking ones :lol: Just saw on ESPN TV a Camaro Baldwin been auctioned for USD167000.00.
Not a bad investment!

And none of us are at all being biased by the cars we own ourselves!

No Ways :roll: :lol: How can we be, its just plain common sense that a 69/70 Mustang is the best looking car around. A 69 Camaro is second to the Mustang and then a Cuda

Tiaan, it doesn't just look like a road car, it is fully road legal, licenced, insured and with an MOT. he could drive it to the shops if he felt like it.
