A real Pro Street car with quite some output and yet in the decent style of a Camaro RS/SS. The car is used on the road regularly .
The Camaro was lavishly modified by a garage owner in the USA in 2009. A new engine was built in the same year., respective invoices are included. After the car had been imported to Germany, several other details and the running gear were improved.
'Comrade' or 'friend' is the translation of the French word 'camerade', from which Chevrolet derived the name for the Camaro. Back then Chevrolet was part of the automobile group General Motors. The top model, available only in the U.S.A., carries the description SS, which stands for Super Sport and was sold as coupé and convertible. These models were not made by General Motors, but by SLP, an independent tuner and car customizer.
