Great article from Hagerty about a special 79 Camaro. And since I always have a soft spot for 2nd gen F Body material:

I sure hope someone uses this as their Challenge car theme.

It's quite possible that Mad Max was an inspiration here.

Or possibly a modern day version of The Rat Patrol.

For some reason, this is my favorite picture. If I need something transported, I'm calling him. He has seen it all and come out the other side.

Meyer still has his Camaro, now painted orange. Filled with a sentiment that will no doubt be familiar to some he says, “I still have my War Camaro, I love it very much and my wife hates it just as much. For her it’s just a lot of iron plates.”

:sigh:

Significant others never understand.

There is an old movie (don't remember the name) with a stunt driver who drove around in a Camaro (I think it was one) that had an external roll bar.  I can't find any pics of it though.

Might be time to freshen up the look on the CP car.

This is very cool.  And that statement has only a little to do with the car.

Are you thinking of Shaker Run with the pink Trans Am? (Actually Holden based kit cars I think). Pretty cheesy but the V8 Capri was cool.
