I have a rule when I go to car shows. Unless it’s a very special 1957 Chevy or 1969 Camaro, I’d rather take photos and video of cars that you don’t see at every car show. I don’t have anything against ’69 Camaros or ’57 Chevys, it’s just that there are rarer cars. The Lingenfelter Collection doesn’t have any ’57 BelAirs but it does have a number of Camaros, including at least one ’69. Like every car in the collection, it has a story and of course it’s not a run of the mill 1969 Camaro and certainly worthy of preserving in photos and video. The Collection describes its ’69 Camaro as “the finest restoration on the planet Earth”. It’s a very rare, numbers matching Z-28 with a dealer installed JL8 4 wheel disc brake option that was developed for Chevy’s Trans Am program. There are two other Z-28s in the Collection, a dark blue 2nd generation car, and a red gen III Z-28 that was one of only 116 made. SS models are represented by a ’67 SS 350 Camaro. Those are the stock Camaros in the Collection. There’s a 4th generation wheelie popping drag Camaro, a Callaway Camaro, and two first gen cars that Ken Lingenfelter has had customized. An eye popping orange ’67 carries a 572 cubic inch LPE big block and there’s a full custom ’68 made by Kustom Creations that Ken calls the RS06. It’s a 1968 Camaro body mounted on a C5 Corvette Z06 chassis and drivetrain. Even without the ‘Vette innards, the RS06 would be worthy of note. It’s simply stunning. Details on the RS06 are below the jump.
