why would you get rid of the speed channel it ranks up there with history, discovery, espn, cnbc, the food network, and g4 as channels you need?

They also did an episode devoted to the Z/28, it re-runs from time to time, I don't think there are any episodes I have not seen. And yes, if you don't have Speed Channel you miss a lot of good shows.

Is this a new episode? It sounds familiar, but at least I have the series on the TiVo.

Thanks for the heads up

It's actually from 2006, but I never saw it before.

I thought that with Camaro fever rising, we could use any Camaro entertainment available.

Enjoy!

I forgot to set the Tivo, but I have probably already seen it. I watched a whole American Muscle Cars marathon sometime last year.

Dragoneye, I can't stand seeing you so upset!

This series has DVD's available, unfortunately I don't believe they have put today's Camaro episode on DVD yet

But, they do have one with the 1967-69 Chevrolet Camaro SS 396..

Check these out...

If you have Netflix, they have 3 DVD's from this series and you can even watch them online instantly with no DVD:

http://www.netflix.com/Search?v1=ame...ch_submit.y=33

Here's the best place for sales, they have loads of them:

http://www.dvdempire.com/Exec/v5_sea...arch_refined=0

I've used DVD Empire for years, great vendor!


Amazon.com has them for purchase for only $9.98each:

Recorded it and watched it last night with the g/f. Very informative but they used a lot of words my g/f was like "WTF does that mean?!?!?!"

I'll have to find out when the Z28 episode airs next. It's nice to learn about the history of the Camaro. I really hope that Chevy offers the same range of options from the power engine (SS 396) that you can put in the lightest/base model. I might have to get that if I'm getting the coupe.
