The Camaro Story. Let’s delve into the story behind our Camaro.
Fully restored and built to show at SEMA. The journey begins with the Camaro being built for the son of a fallen solider. Named the “Colton Camaro” after Shane Colton who was shot down over Bagdad in an Apache in 2004. Before venturing overseas, Shane and his son Lance, were in the process of building a Camaro worthy to be magazine featured, but more importantly teach his son how to build a car.
After word got out about the project offers came in thick and fast to help, from a NASCAR Team, Camaro Worldwide Club and SEMA. With donations and products continuing to come in, it was time to build the Chevrolet. As a full-blown project, the build started at the Central Texas Collage, a trade school right in Lance’s hometown so students including Lance were allowed to help and learn, overseen by ARMO (Automotive Restoration Market Organisation) and president of the Worldwide Camaro Club alongside other industry experts.
After a long build process and a lot of hard work it was showtime! The dream always was to show the Chevrolet at SEMA and they did just that in 2006! Under the lights, a packed crowd and even news outlets covering the big reveal.
Overall, an amazing story which has been fully documented in several magazines. A one-off example that still presents in amazing condition throughout.
