great roof & side lines & wheels, mint condition especially inside. One of the great V8 muscle cars. Congratulations for the effort.
This video is amazing. Is there a soundtrack list for this? I’m loving that first song!
Great to see an American classic rumbling through the French countryside. What’s really interesting to me is that Chevrolet’s intent with the new-for-1970 second generation Camaro design was to call forth a decidedly European flavor as compared to the aggressively all-American look of the first-gen version. Seeing one of these rolling on a European road makes it that much sweeter.
Good film, great story, digging the cragar ss period correct rims, that’s exactly what it would have looked like back then.
Another great video! I love the US cars in Europe theme. Well done…..
Gauges aren’t original. They look to be Autogage. I’m assuming Roberto did them as the speedo reads in MPH not KM’s. Beautiful car in a color that grows on you.
Well spotted. The tach is a more fully featured gauge than stock. I think that I see an AutoMeter tach with the adjustment knob for the shift light mounted right on the face. The speedometer, which may be seen clearly for a very few frames at 6:49, is marked MPH at the bottom. The speedometer bezel is a little different from the tachometer, and so the speedometer may be original to the car. The trip-odometer knob, is at the bottom of the of the speedometer, and it looks to be mechanical.
Its KA-Marrow, not Cam-a-row. ‘Murica.
It’s always interesting how large American cars appear on European roads. I’ll bet that Camaro turns some heads in France!
Great story! Thank you. What was involved in bringing the car into France? As someone else mentioned , I’m not sure I would have the nerve to try this. I bought a Corvette based on photos and conversation with the owner and everything went well, but he was in Allentown, PA. Enjoy the ride!
Cool story and congratulations as the car looks beautiful. I am not sure that I would be brave enough to purchase car from a stranger in a foreign country, especially when you have to wait several months for it to arrive home; but I am glad that you were!
I wonder if Roberto in Victorville has any more of these?
Beautiful machine, talented professional amazing location. Cheers! !!
I didn’t know Matt Damon was French… Cool car and even cooler story!
