Exclamation Fifth Gear Camaro SS Review - by Jason Plato [VIDEO]

Featured on CAMARO5 HOMEPAGE.


Fifth Gear, the second most popular automotive show out of England, has now gotten its hands on the Camaro SS for their own review. A rally yellow Camaro SS is flogged by co-host Jason Plato (himself an accomplished racing driver). The episode just aired within the last couple of hours, but we bring you the video below.

So how does he like the Camaro SS? We won't ruin it for you, but can say that there's plenty of smiles and giggles from Jason. And although it's not all praise for the Camaro, he does end the segment by saying that the "SS does a better job than any muscle car before and is guaranteed to make you giggle!"

* Please be respectful in your responses even if you don't agree with the review.







Fifth Gear also previously reviewed the V6 Camaro in this special web episode: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=37214

Noticed an aircraft hanger in the background. What old airbase was the article filmed?
