If it was insured, the insurance company may own it.

Stolen? Pfft, the Camaro got up on its own and got the hell out of Jersey.

Charlie Manson used to steal cars back east and drive them out to California. Who knows.

Although he never stole a car himself.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the Camaro in the picture have a 427 badge on it?

As the only longhair without a mullet to ever work on my old man's Camaro, I'm getting a kick out of that article. If it's authentically a '69 with a 427 in it from the factory it's really rare and pretty valuable. Can't tell for sure as the link is farked/fubuxored.

Article says it originally had a 6 cylinder, so it's not even a true SS.

waiting for the buzzkillers to say that a '69 chevy with a 396 couldn't have fuelie heads like in bruce springsteen's song "Racing in the Streets"

D'oh

I just did

Boo-urns then.

'67 RS/SS with retrofitted Hurst 4 speed, original owner welded a '69 independent rear end into it. It has the oil and coolant leaks to prove its originality. Now with working passenger side subframe on the back, no more strut held on with rust and welding slag at least. Next up on the list, replacing the firewall insulation, clutch boot and wiring.

It's no Yenko/COPO, It just had a motor swap after it was stolen.

Now if someone would just return my 59 chevy like that, I would call it a good week.

I had a '67 Mustang GT with a 428SCJ engine and I used to race my neighbor with a '69 Camaro w/427 so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

Bought it with the paint already done. Redneck front plate has been pulled and the interior is being redone. 40-50 years of 350 pound rednecks destroyed the front seats. I want to add a sway bar since the bastard wallows like an elephant. Best part is watching the hood flex toward the engine when the back barrels open up.

Sadly the Subaru next to it in that shot is faster. Memory inflates the performance characteristics of classics. Even so the sound of that GM V8makes me smile every time, my modern hairdryer can't compete.

I had a 1986 Honda Accord LXi, 12 valve 4 cylinder, automatic transmission, 4 door sedan. My motorhead friend, who has owned muscle cars his entire life, was shocked, utterly and completely shocked at how quick that thing got off the line. It was faster than his 413 hemi in his Chrysler 300, and it didn't eat up crankshafts a couple times a year, either.

he called it "the fastest sewing machine he's ever seen or heard."

I still can't help but feel that GM ran out of ass when they designed that thing. It looks fine from the B pillar forward.

My father's '67 SS/RS Convertible had the hidden headlights and RS badges, but the SS engine and hood.

Never noticed any other SS/RS Camaros that did not have the RS-package hidden headlights.

It's a beaut though.

Original owner (so far as we can tell) swapped the SS headlights in. It's had a hard life.

First thing we did to it was pull the Wal*Mart special tachometer off the steering column. If you need a tach in that car you need to check your hearing. Change gears when it sounds like Ragnarok. Another couple of years will get it back to something resembling factory.
