About “Black Betty”

In 1973 the Type LT replaced the SS option and added many new options to the Camaro line, such as factory A/C for the first time and power windows for the first time in the second gen production line. I've owned this for a few years and done some myself, with friends and paid for the rest. I try to maintain a stock look, and do a few shows from time to time. In the coming summer I will run it down the track a time or two and get my 0-60, and 1/4 mile times.

If you can provide documentation on how many LT Z28 RS optioned Camaros were produced in '73 I would like to hear from you.

About “Submi”

I bought this car back in 2001 not knowing very much about cars, other than I really liked mustangs... I have been working on this car little by little since I bought it learning more and more about how and what to do to her. I put in a new engine (347), upgraded the drivetrain, refreshed the interrior, and added a whole list of suspension goodies. There is tons more done. Check out the list of mods on her to see everything.
