Big Red Camaro vs. 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
In February 2014, Hot Rod Magazine invited the Big Red Camaro out to face off against
Chevrolet's new 2014 Z-28 Camaro. Big Red has never been
one to back down from a challenge and to pit the Generation 1 Camaro against the new Generation
5 was too good an opportunity to pass up. The Big Red team braved one of
the worst ice storms on record and made the trip out to the Barber
Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama to attend the challenge. With the
freezing temperatures came poor track conditions, and the new Z/28 had a
huge advantage with all its modern traction control systems - Big Red had
her work cut out for her. Unfortunately the less than ideal conditions held
Big Red back from reaching her full potential in what would be a classic
duel on a truly great road course, but she still managed to give her
descendant one hell of a run for its money.
A big thanks to Hot Rod Magazine, Chevrolet and Barber Motorsports Park for
the opportunity to come out and strut our stuff!

The Big Red Camaro was
originally built in 1987 by father and son team, Dan and RJ Gottlieb. The
car began as an all stock 1969 Chevrolet Camaro and became a very highly
modified muscle machine revered and well-known for its stunning
performances in "flat out" open road racing. The original car was destroyed
in an accident in the La Carrera Road Race in 1988, as the stock chassis
was unable to handle the stresses of cornering the heavy car under the
conditions and massive power output. "Big Red" was then rebuilt by the
late, great race car builder Bill Osborne with the original stock '69 body
and a spaceframe tube chassis, as well as a 1,000 plus horse power engine
built by Larry Mollicone. This is the car that went on to win accolades and
trophies at both the La Carrera Classic and Silver State Classic Challenge
throughout the late 80's, catching the world's attention, scoring features
in numerous car magazines, and made a name for itself among muscle car and
race enthusiasts. Big Red was retired in 1996 to a car museum, and revived
for racing again in 2004. Big Red continues to live up to the title of "The
Baddest '69 Camaro
