      Almost-ly relevant, but this is Last Call anyway:

    I was first going to say that Sunoco-Penske is the correct livery for a Camaro, citing the early Trans Am cars, but I grew up reading magazines that usually had a bunch of articles on Player’s Challenge races. A field full of 3rd gen F-bodies is already pretty cool, but also apparently if you ordered the requisite Camaro 1LE (hardtop, big brakes, right powertrain, and no A/C), you’d get a phone call from John Heinricy just to verify you knew exactly what you ordered. So yes, a 3rd gen Sunoco-livery Camaro might be peak cool for me.

      That reminds me of a letter to Hot Rod or Car Craft in the 80s where the guy ordered a very basic Firebird Formula and it was delivered with rear disk brakes he hadn’t ordered because the system saw maximum engine/minimum options and assumed race car.

    I think Helge Meyer’s Ghost Car still wins as the greatest Camaro ever.

      Meyer’s exploits still defy belief

      That is one of the more bizarre things I have read, completely new to me. A Mad Max style car, a bullet lodged in his helmet, presenting himself as “Meyer, US Army” and writing a book called “God’s Rambo”? Sounds like a metric bucket full of crazy, that ended up doing a lot of good nonetheless.

      Wow! What an incredible badass!

      I had never heard of Helge Meyer and his Ghost Camaro before, but I’ve now spent the last hour reading everything I can find about this truly heroic humanitarian.

    I’m sure it’s a fantastic race car, but there’s not much Camaro there. The Penske Sunoco Camaros of the 60s or any number of IMSA Camaros are actually Camaro based.

    The “Greatest Camaro” is the one that just came out of the crusher.

    This should be a shoo-in for HCOTY in any year.
