Cool Interview with Al Oppenheiser - explaining ZL1 underside


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE


This seems like a pretty new video. This isn't a Sponsor (I have to check into that) but I think it's one of the coolest interviews with Mr. O'.

Interesting to see it from that angle.

Those meats in the rear look tasty!

Also, poo on Ford for going 'outside' for their engineering.

Al Oppenheiser is the best thing to happen to Camaro in the past 10 years.

That - and a bunch of his team members!

It's great to have someone like Al who lives, eats, and breaths Camaro at the top of the Team.

Great vid, that was a joy to watch, very low key, very informative.

I feel like I met Mr O and he gave me the overview of the underside personally.

Thats cool. Allie O FTW! I liked the quick description how the underbelly was designed up front to channel cooler air to the tranny and the front wheel/BRAKES area.

Do you feel like you met a celebrity when you see an interview with them talking about a current project on a show like Conan?

Not so much, in fact, no. Thanks for asking.

It's just that I'm very personally invested in Camaro and ZL1, and I once got a chance to talk with 'father, so there was some connection there.

I love Camaro and if on occasion I get so enthusiastic that I look a bit silly, I don't care. I'm not trying to impress anybody, I'm just being me.

Al, Scott, and the whole team are some great down-to-earth folks that care about their product, and the people who buy it. Al always seems excited to talk about the car. I'm so glad I got to meet and talk with them at Camaro5Fest II. And so proud to have their autographs, and the end results of their labors, under the hood of my car!
