Camaro Racer Brought Back To Life After Two Decades Of Sitting

This race car is a seriously intimidating icon at the Freedom Factory.

Vintage race cars are some of the most incredible vehicles to ever grace the various road courses of America because of their unique performance options and design. Modern BMWs, Volkswagens, and even some Chevy's are quick machines. However, there is nothing quite like seeing a classic Camaro, Firebird, or Corvette hit the road. That's because of the raw personality accompanying every inch of these vintage vehicles. This is building up to show you one of the most iconic racing champions to ever touch tires to asphalt at DeSoto Super Speedway. So what is this excellent car that deserves so much raving?

The vehicle in question is a later-model second-generation Chevrolet Camaro which could have been used in everything from racing to daily driving. It doesn't take too much investigative work to find out that this pony car was a red-blooded American racer in its hay day. The entire exterior is coated in a vibrant Red, White, and Blue paint, which shows its vast racing heritage and the national pride of being the best. Of course, you might miss all of that paint if you don't look closely, as rust has covered nearly every exterior part. The really cool part of this old racer is what's under the hood. So what's this pony car packing?

Under the hood of this legendary vehicle is a particular Chevy small-block V8 engine used primarily for performance cars and heavy-duty trucks in its day. This car would have certainly been a formidable opponent on any track, but it was a fan favorite at DeSoto, now known as the Freedom Factory. After over two decades of sitting, a well-known automotive YouTuber and car guy took it upon himself to try and start up the old car. Finally, the vehicle was again able to drive on its home track in a fantastic display of power and graceful aging. We applaud the man who brought this Camaro back to life for his willingness to work on a car that others would have given up on. would like to thank American Collectors Insurance for their continued support of the collector car hobby.
