Cars to Drive in a Lifetime: Chevrolet Camaro SS
Do you like this article?
In 2002, Chevrolet fans around the world were watching how the last Camaros were rolling off the production lines. The last generation Camaro model was already ten years old, a little overweight, with too little rear seat room, difficult to see out of, with an interior featuring a lot of cheap plastics, and to top it all off, it was too expensive as well.
To counterbalance these undesirable features, the Camaro SS flaunted a potent Chevy LS1 V-8, mated to a six-speed transmission. Chevrolet also made a 35th anniversary Camaro SS, with a little too many large-sized logos all over. Back in its day, the 325 horsepower vehicle cost $30,000 (for an anniversary coupe), but now its value has dropped significantly.
