If you notice, we don’t feature a lot of Camaros around here. It’s not that I have anything against the Chevy muscle car, it’s just that you can see first generation Camaros, particular 1969 models, at just about any car show. Rules are meant to be broken and if it’s a special 1st gen Camaro, like a real ZL1, I’ll shoot it and feature it here. Of course, any genuine Yenko Chevy, Camaro or not, is worth some pixels so when I noticed the Yenko stickers and asked the owner if it was real, and he said yes, I was sure to get a few beauty shots. Between the cars that Don Yenko built himself and the dealer installed packages, there were only about 200 Yenko Camaros built in 1969. Even if they weren’t rare, they’re notable enough cars: The full Yenko/COPO package included a L72 427/425hp engine, special ducted hood, dual exhaust system, bigger radiator, special suspension, a 140 mph speedometer, bigger front stabilizer bar and 15 x 7 Rally wheels with E70 raised white lettered tires.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
