December 2002 Feature car:

Dominic Blasco's 1969 COPO Camaro


Engine: L-72, 427/425hp
Transmission: M-21 4-speed
Rear end: "BE" 4.10 posi
Options: Air spoilers (D80), F70-14 raised white letter tires on 14x7 rally wheels
Interior color: Standard black vinyl (711)
Exterior color: Rally Green (79)


    This month's belated feature car is another fine example that was sold "north of the border".  Originally sold at Belmont Chevy-Olds in Toronto, Ontario, this car  has been documented by both GM of Canada and by the COPO Connection, and still has some of it's original paperwork.  The engine was treated to a complete rebuild, and features a "CE" block with all new internals.




    Dominic told me he regularly races a 7-second, blown and injected, '41 Willys, but that he was looking for a new challenge, so he was gonna try the Camaro in the Pure Stock and Factory Stock Drags!  Let's see: 425 horsepower, a 4-speed, and Polyglass tires.  All I can say is, Dom, is you are in for an experience!
