Big-Block Beauty: A 1970 (and a 1/2) Chevrolet Camaro 396 SS/RS (in Japan!)

February 11, 2014

My local, old-school, American Muscle-car workshop always has sweet cars parked out the front. The other day I stopped by to check out this big-block, Chevrolet Camaro 396 SS/RS.

This Camaro was built in 1971. It has a 6,489cc V8 engine.
