The fourth-generation of Chevroler Camaro is a strange story, loved at the time, yet not enough to justify the pony car’s lifecycle. Today, they’re dirt cheap, normally beaten by teenagers after parking lot shenanigans and mistaking a smoking clutch for a gnarly burnout.
This, however, is not one of those fouth-generation Camaros. This is a 2000 Lingenfelter Chevrolet Camaro SS. It’s the same one we drove to the incredible CamaroSix reveal event at Bell Isle, therefore, we can attest to what a time capsule this car is.
No, this isn’t the Camaro for the older folks. Their Camaro memories are likely rooted in earlier generations. But, for our staff, this was one of our poster cars as a child. Nostalgia runs deep here, and this example is prime as it heads to auction through Auctions America.
The Lingenfelter Camaro SS resides with less than 40,000 miles on the odometer, featuring the 5.7-liter LS1 V8 engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox with a Hurst shifter for proper throws. The 2000 Camaro remains mostly stock, save for a few minor modifications like Continental radial tires, Fikse aluminum wheels and a hood scoop.
If there was one final f-body Camaro to purchase, this is the one.
