A 3800 mile roundtrip. Sweden to Croatia and back!

Took my baby on a long vacation trip with my girlfriend. We have family in Croatia so ee go there every summer. This time with the Camaro! Fantastic trip and fantastic car! Due to heavy traffic on autobahn i "only" reached 182mph, but she had more to give!

All packed and ready to go!

First stop in germany.
My favorite place in Trogir Croatia. Car wash!

I really like these photos of the car parked at my girlfriends grandfather! Great contrast between new and old!

This is at my fathers birthplace, the oter chevy is his. I just gave both a thorough bath!
On the way home we went over the alps instead of through. Fantastic roads and views both in Austria and Italy!


Shout out to apex for their 1.25" lowering springs, great ride and great looks!

Nice trip. I spent some time in Scandinavia with my Brothers in 2007.
We then rode in a car to meet up with others in Germany. We caught the ferry from Helsingborg to Denmark, where we spent a little time in Copenhagen. Another ferry ride took us to Germany where we drove to Berlin for a 2 day layover. We then drove to another Brother's home near Landstuhl Regional Medical Center for another 2 day layover. I then met up with a band I was working security for and we drove from Germany to Belgium, Belgium to Switzerland, then Switzerland to France.

When the band returned home, I drove Europe alone for the first time. Wow, I was nervous. I drove from Nancy, France to Amsterdam - for a little R&R. Amsterdam fuel prices were highway robbery.

Lots of old American cars are being driven around Sweden.

Thanks Bill, for showing all the non-believers a 331" small block Chevy powered car could outrun a 426 Hemi powered car. Thanks for the tube chassis, the splay valve small block cylinder heads, the strut front suspension, and the dry sump oiling system. I applaud your becoming the once king of the NA motors builders. Most of all, thanks for the racing memories and inspiring many young guys to follow in your footsteps.

Nice! Ive crossed europe several times but never in my camaro. It was a very pleasant trip! The attention the car got outside Sweden was fantastic! Gas prices here not so fantastic! $7.64/gallon for premium. The gas mileage for the whole trip landed on 20.8mpg, also really nice considering 6.2l and 433rwhp!
