    Add says "never been raced" which would include all types of racing to me.

    In the 6 years I have owned this current Camaro, its never been to the track, and never raced against anything that was real competition. I know its a stretch to make that type of comment, but I don't see it as being impossible either. There are people that just have different mindsets. After totaling my first Camaro twice, high speed and hydroplaning, I really don't feel the need to race mine. I have a house to take care of, and a stupid racing ticket or wrecking my car or injuring someone else really doesn't seem all that wise to me. Call me a pussy if you wish, but people think differently.

    So you, Preston, who has one of the most meticulously kept Camaro's on the planet has raced his at some point...

    Think about that and then really think about what you're telling me.

    Just saying...

    Mine has never been at the track, and really never been in what I would consider a racing situation either, unless you count some redneck in a 80s pickemuptruck that couldn't hang past 35 MPH.

    i have no doubt he's raced it on the street, he prob just meant he's never raced it at a track. I'll be sure to give it a thorough look over, Thanks!

    Good choice. I really doubt the other was a real WS6. It had no emblem in the back and didn't have a Hurst Shifter Knob (most of the ones I've ever seen had the Hurst option). God knows what else (notice it didn't show the engine compartment, ie "Ram Air" labeled induction parts).
