    My, My, My. How Fancy The Camaro Has Become...

    I attended the 7th annual Barrington Concours D'Elegance today. Truly, a spectacular event! In addition to the expected post and pre war Duesenbergs, Cadillacs, Packards, Lincolns, etc., featured were over a dozen Vincent motorcycles of historical significance. That was really something see, as was the collection of Avions Voisins.

    In one corner of the field, was a category called "Horsepower Wars". From 50 feet away, it almost seemed like any other collection of nice cars you'd see at a typical cruise night. Until you got up really close to them, and saw an astounding level of detail and quality only reserved for an event such as this. One of those cars was an orange '69 Yenko Camaro.

    After all of the awards were given, they called up the three finalists for "Best Of Show".

    They were: 1931 Chrysler Imperial. 1935 Avions Voisin Type C25 Aerodyne. And drumroll please.............1969 Chevrolet Camaro "Yenko".

    I mean, can you believe that!? Is that awesome? In the end, the Avions Voisin won best of show, and deservedly so. But did anyone ever think a lowly Camaro could play at a Concours D'Elegance with cars like that?


    Here we go:



    Not the best pic, but the best I could do with my phone and all those pesky pro photographers getting in my way....

    If that is a real Yenko, I would take it over the other 2 any day!

    Another American car winning awards was Mickey Thomson's '63 split window Z06.

    I would have taken some better pics of the Yenko, had known I would start a thread on it. Anyway, it's a common phrase, but it really applies here: Pictures just don't do these cars justice.

    I really need to become a Camaro owner. My wife keeps telling me she'd rather have a Camaro than a Vette. Now if I can just convince her to let us pull the trigger on a '14 SS.

    Why? better yet, why would you listen to such nonsense?

    The only Camaro I will ever own is a 69 RS/SS...and I WILL own one someday. Preferably a 396

    Has your wife had the opportunity to test drive the Camaro? If not I would be more than happy to set up an appointment and that may give her the push she needs .
