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?
