March 2002 Feature car:

Dominic Blasco's 1969 COPO Camaro


COPO 9561 option: 427/425hp engine, 4-core radiator (curved neck), dual exhaust, heavy duty suspension, cowl hood, power front disc brakes
Engine: L-72 (427/425hp)
Transmission: M-21 (Muncie 4-speed)
Rear-end: 4.10 posi
Exterior color: Hugger Orange
Interior color: Black standard

     This month's feature car is another one of those outrageous Canadian COPO cars, complete with bright orange paint, and the potent L-72 powerplant. 

     This beautiful COPO Camaro was treated to a full tilt, frame-off restoration by Dave Tinnell, and has since been awarded the gold certificate and Diamond award at the Camaro Nationals, along with a Gold Spinner award.


     Being a Canadian car, it comes with the usual documentation from GM of Canada, along with being certified by Ed Cunneen of the COPO Connection.  Previous owners of this car include Mike Guarise and Mick Price.

     If you are lucky enough to know Dom, or happened to see this car at the Camaro Nationals or 'Vette Fest, then you can verify just how nice this car is.  But, if you haven't yet saw it, then keep your fingers crossed...Dom says his Camaro just might make the trip to the Supercar Reunion!
