6th Generation Camaro SS

My first new car was a 1968 Camaro RS 

Almost 50 years later I decided it was time to return to my roots - before it was too late!

Garnet Red in colour this one has all the good performance options:

6.2L LT1 V8, 455 hp & 455 lb.ft of torque

8 speed automatic transmission with adaptive shift modes & launch control

Dual Mode performance exhaust

Sports suspension with Magnetic Ride damper system

Brembo brakes

20" wheels with summer only tires

Some other photos and the window sticker.

Many thanks to Hal Bensen at Murray Chev Cadillac in Medicine Hat Alberta for assisting me in getting the exact car I was looking for. I bought it mid February and didn't take delivery until May 3rd, but it was worth the wait and what a spectacular drive home!!

A lot has changed from my last Camaro 50 years ago, the technology in the power train, the packaging under the car of the exhaust and the suspension, the incredible performance and handling, and the safety.

I knew these cars were quick but I had to find out myself. On July 2nd I took it to St. Thomas Raceway Park and totally stock on street tires it ran a best of 12.30 at 112 mph into a strong head wind - yes it's quick!

1968 Camaro RS

My first new car

It was Butternut Yellow with a black vinyl top and had the Rally Sport option which added the black rocker trim, black nose stripe and hideaway headlights.

It was the first year for the Firestone Wide Oval tires, the motor was a 327 and was decently quick.
