    Default Shep's car

    Hi everyone,

    I was just wondering about the red oldtimer that Sheppard is driving at the beginning of Vegas? It's really neat. I'm curious about the model / year of construction? I don't really have a clue on american cars and I'm sorry if this question has been asked before.

    Thanks for your help.

    Give it to The Stig and you will see how good it really is.
    Some say that he has only one ear.
    And that he solved the Da Vinci Code in 3 minutes.

    I think it's a bit older than '81 myself, late 70's maybe but I don't think they changed much in that time period so any differences will be pretty minor. It also doesn't look like a z28.

    This was basically the dark ages for the Camaro we're looking a here. At no point were they fatter and more underpowered than here. The newer ones might weigh more or almost the same but they've got way more under the hood to make up for it than the measly 305s or emissions choked 350s these had to suffer with.

    With so many of these having being candidates for engine swaps though (for obvious reasons) who knows what Shep's actually got under there.

    The '79 Camaro looks similar... pretty damn similar...

    Great car, but I prefer the '68 Ford Mustang in red. *droooool*

    Both nice, but I'll take a red '67 Chevelle with a 454 and black stripes any day of the weak...talk about torque!
