Own a slice of history with the Camaro Z28 Watkins Glen Raceway


camaro-z8So, you have pretty much “made it” in life, having a comfortable retirement nest egg, your health is in tip top condition, your children have flown the nest and are doing extremely well for themselves, and your have no lack of any physical need. Let’s just say that you have a surplus of funds and would like to purchase something “crazy” or deemed to be surplus requirements for any home, then you could surely do worse than to drive home the $85,000 Camaro Z28 Watkins Glen Raceway.

Do not be mistaken – this Camaro Z28 Watkins Glen Raceway is a genuine, full-size 1969 Camaro Z28 that incorporates a slot car track modeled after the legendary Watkins Glen International raceway. The classic race car will retain its authentic magnesium Minilite wheels as well as lightweight steel body, not to mention its blue exterior that comes emblazoned with original Penske and Sunoco logos. In addition, you cannot run away from the recognizable #6 that is emblazoned on the door, where it commemorates champion driver Mark Donohue who steered the Camaro to half a dozen victories in 1969.

Incorporating the two-lane track required the Camaro’s windshield, roof and seats to be removed, so that it can make way for the 1/32-scale slot cars to navigate The Glen’s trademark 11 curves. Boasting of a hand-carved wooden route, it has been banked to facilitate maximum speeds. A key fob will turn the track on, while pushing on the door handle will activate LEDs that illuminate the course. Each purchase comes with a dozen slot cars that are the embodiment of “muscle”, where you will find models such as the Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger, and the main star, the Chevy Camaro. You can be sure that this is going to be one of your treasured heirlooms as the little boy in you cheers on with this purchase. Better this Camaro Z8 than a modern day Transformers Bumblebee Camaro, yes?
