(Phrases and Photographs by Dan Grippo) Just a few weekends again I used to be in Pittsburgh, Pa doing a little Mustang stuff and whereas I used to be on the highway, the 2023 model of the Camaro Nationals was occurring 10 minutes from my home. I had a blast on the occasion final 12 months, so I used to be sort of bummed to overlook this go round. Don’t have any worry although, BangShift reader, my brother Dan Grippo braved the warmth and snapped a bunch of the F-Physique motion taking place on the Traditional Auto Mall in Morgantown, Pennsylvania.
The ample parking zone surrounding the Traditional Auto Mall was full of all method of Camaro. Fashionable-day examples with odd themes and tasteful modifications sat beside a number of totally different generations of day 2 rides sporting period-perfect components and modifications. Drag automobile, Professional Touring, and naturally, Professional Road builds are nonetheless as standard as ever with a number of of every style on the premises. Inventory-style restorations are nonetheless dominant, with many advantageous examples in attendance.
Contained in the fortunately air-conditioned Auto Mall, an space was put aside for the cream of the crop, most interesting of the advantageous, the concourse judged Camaros. Right here you can see the low mileage survivors, the Tremendous Vehicles like Yenkos, the COPO’s, and Tempo Vehicles. The excessive finish stuff. Dig that black ‘69 huge block COPO RS with the one-off orange rally stripes. So killer.
One other devoted room was loaded with extra invitation Camaros. Road Machines of all descriptions, extra back-to bone-stock restos, and actually, what Camaro present can be full with no Invoice ‘Grumpy” Jenkins instance, this one being a ’68 from the inaugural 1970 Professional Inventory. It was resplendent with a tunnel rammed huge block shod with white headers, two gulping Holley’s and Moroso cool can, sitting on these attractive Cragar SS’s, pure perfection. On the opposite finish of the spectrum, although not all the best way to the top was the 2016ish darkish blue, bulging Mr. Chevrolet Dick Harrell Version Camaro, sitting all badass with a 427 LS and candy Fiske wheels. I’m not a lot for newer stuff however the images of this factor, acquired my consideration.

Hell, the Traditional Auto Mall is value a visit by itself.
