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 “Black Sunshine”

My First car. I bought her on July 27, 2006 when I was 16

The best times of my life have happened in this car

Guy that I bought it from said that he was going to make it into an 8 sec car

Has 5% on rear and rear side windows. Got 2 tickets in the same week by the same state dick and said if I didn't take the tint off he was gonna impound my car. So the sides are bare now
