Automotive photog Dave Burnett AKA “Puppyknuckles” drove a ‘16 Camaro from Bozeman to Seattle, just like we did. He had extra 100 horsepower or so, but damn if he didn’t make that thing look good sitting still.
The snow was flying towards the windshield with such fury that we appeared to be traveling at warp speed through a tunnel of stars. Our Camaro’s dashboard was aglow with sci-fi accent lighting and LCD screens; a wealth of data was laid out before me, but I’d mainly been paying attention to the temperature readout…
After all the stolen Camaro stories, we thought we’d written our last. But now there’s a story of another owner who was reunited with his stolen Camaro after decades of grief.
Chevy just released the performance specs for the new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, and it seems that their very back-to-basics plan — add power, remove weight — is working, with the car shedding 390 pounds and going from zero to 60 MPH in four seconds. Those numbers are for the 455 HP 6.2-liter V8 SS model (on 20-in. RF4…
The Chevrolet Camaro is no longer a car for mullet-totin’ hillbillies, it’s a force in modern engineering. What do you need to know before you buy a Chevrolet Camaro? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
First, let me say that, according to witnesses, everyone is okay. That should give me the leeway to comfortably say, damn, that is one impressive wreck. What, exactly, do you have to be doing in a Camaro to perch it so delightfully precariously on top of a Subaru? I mean, just look at that. Was the guy who runs…
Dirk Vanzuuk is a road racer, Mad Max devotee, and the proud owner of a gorgeous ‘69 Camaro. A cancer diagnoses threatened to black-flag Dirk for good. But the man, the machine, and the movie all came together to hurtle Dirk down what we can only describe as the Fury Road to Recovery.
Indy 500 winners Dario Franchitti, Tony Kanaan, and Scott Dixon cooked up a brilliant prank for their young, brash 20-year-old teammate Sage Karam: Take his brand-new Camaro and have it wrapped...in an unmistakable color... Watch as the IndyCar hotshoe reacts to seeing his pride and joy turn up in a less manly motif...
Here it is! Looks like it comes in at LEAST two colors. Pretty cool, imho.
The lesson here? You don’t always have to be a dick. Sometimes, you just need to shrug off stupid shit and move on. The alternative can often end up like this, where one initial bad move by that Camaro got compounded into a three-way wreck, taking down an innocent trucker just doing their job. So what happened here?
The outgoing Chevrolet Camaro is good at a lot of things, like burnouts and sending people to jail for speeding and keeping up with Porsches on the race track. One thing it isn't is light — your average Camaro SS comes in around 3,900 pounds. Fortunately, the 2016 Camaro stands to lose "more than 200 pounds" on its…
SRT isn't completely gone from motorsports. They're still alive and kicking with partner Miller Racing, who runs a sweet lime green Challenger in the Trans-Am series. This short clip of Tommy Kendall's Challenger and another competitor's Camaro proves that Trans Am is now the best sounding race series in existence.
The very first Chevrolet Camaro SS 350 advertisement looks like it should have been part of the scenery for the 1960s production of HG Wells' classic novel The Time Machine. It seems to appear, fully formed, from the very magma underneath the Earth's crust.
In his postmodern novel The French Lieutenant's Woman, John Fowles tells us that the heroine, Sarah Woodruff, was "the perfect victim of a caste society. Her father had forced her out of her own class but could not raise her to the next. To the men of the one she had left, she had become too select to marry; to those…
How many places is "too many" to have the type of car you're driving written on the back? Three might be too many. [H/T Dana D!]
I was resolute in my obstinance. The Chevy Camaro was old, archaic, primitive, and atrocious. I would hate it with all my being. It would not change me. I would change it. I would resist. But I was wrong. So, so very wrong. Because now I am in love, and l'amour, thy name is Camaro.
We hosted a short press event yesterday morning at the Classic Car Club Manhattan. The good folks at GM brought along the 2014 Indy 500 Pace Car; a brand new Camaro Z28, y'know, the one that brakes so hard the tires lose traction on the wheels. Oh ya, and they brought Dario Franchitti too.
In March 2013, the world's fastest Camaro crashed at speeds approaching 220 MPH at the Texas Mile. The car was totally obliterated, the driver was relatively ok. This is the first video of that crash.
