Chevy Camaro 1LE SEMA Showstopper
Every owner dreams of seeing their ride up on stage in front of millions of people, at one of the nation’s biggest auto events. One of our readers, Bob — a long time racer and Camaro advocate — got to see his dream come true with his Continental Tire Camaro 1LE show car this past year at SEMA.
Read what he had to say about his beautiful machine:
How did you acquire your ride?
I put a SEMA proposal together to get an early build 1LE for Chevrolet, then GM judged the best of several entry ideas and I won.
What drew you in when you bought it?
I’ve been racing sportscars for 25 years, and cars like the Camaro 1LE come along once in a great while. Now there’s the new Z/28, and it’s awesome. With all the mods I did my car it’s very close to the Z.
Does it have a name?
Chevrolet Performance Camaro 1LE.
What do you feel like when you drive it?
When I drive this car it’s like driving a full blown race car on the street.
What would you change about your car, if anything?
I’ll probably just buy a new Z/28.
What have you done to make it a bolder ride?
The car was built by myself at Bob Fehan Motorsports, and I built some lightweight parts out of carbon fiber to make it several pounds lighter. I also added Recaro seats, RPM roll cage, Borla headers and exhaust, Chevrolet performance engine parts, Brembo, Competition brakes, K&N filters, auto meter gages and much more.
Dream accessory for it and why?
All of the above.
