YAK Car Pic of the Day

Do a Google search for a 1970 Chevrolet Camaro, and see how many show up with white sidewall tires and full wheel covers. Almost none. Until now. I passed by this one in an Olean used car lot two years ago and was amazed at its condition. Most old Camaros which still exist have at least had their wheels and tires updated – wouldn’t surprise me if this one even has the six-cylinder engine. The ’70 Camaros were among my favorites (often referred to as 1970-1/2 as they were introduced midway through the 1970 model year). One like this could have been yours in 1970 for around $2,700. There’s one on eBay which (as this is written) has been bid up to $2,850 (reserve of course, not yet met). See it here. And see the brochure here.
