2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS
The official company line in 1966 was that the name Camaro was from an old French slang term for camaraderie and friendship, though some GM brass told the press it's "a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs.” Later, legends grew to include a rare disease that kills horses (i.e., Mustangs). In reality, it's a unique name that met Chevrolet's main requirement of starting with the letter C (think Corvette, Chevelle, Corvair, etc.).
A 2010 Version of the Camaro graces our halls of Classic Auto Mall. This one Supercharged, announces on its badging, that it puts out 575 HP, and by spying through the clear hood scoop, I tend to believe it.
Draped in all menacing black this car could be Darth Vader's son, although he never really proclaimed it! The sexy lines of this 5th generation play out nicely with straight steel, and well minded gaps. The hood scoop presents a surprise when walking up on it with a clear (“plexi”?) window so you can see the supercharger. Otherwise this car is black, save for the chromed edging on each wheel, and the exhaust trim surrounds. Foose 5-spoked wheels in black (of course) are on all 4 corners. Badges say 427 on the hood, but it is a 6.2 Liter mill.
Black leather for all seats all around, with SS embroidered buckets, a spaceship like dash with plenty of analog gauges and knobs with red highlighting, and a large digital radio display keep the driver up to date and maybe even a bit distracted with its great looks on the design end. Voice activated phone, radio and cruise control controls are seen in the steering wheel.
A 6.2 liter V-8 graces the engine compartment, and has been topped with an SLP Magnuson Supercharger. This is backed by a 6-speed manual transmission.
Showing nicely, very pristine, no rust, and all sound under here. All wheel independent suspension, as well as disc braking found. A dual exhaust and the car sounds as good as it looks.
A modern muscle car with some steroids attached, gives you a window on the power it has. All correct for this car, well maintained, normal mileage, and definitely intimidating. Even the sound of the throaty exhaust is mesmerizing.
