    Re: eBay Pick of the Week: 1LE Camaro Road Racer

    There used to be a bunch of similar cars floating around southern Ontario, and the rest of Canada. GM Canada had a spec race series going from the mid-80s to the early 90s, sponsored as well by Players Tobacco, with a version of the 1LE Camaros and Firebirds running. Was awesome competition to watch, great Canuck road racers like David Empringham and Ron Fellows came up through this. A friend of mine had an ex-Richard Spenard car that he ran in regional events, I shared it with him one weekend ... lots of fun, quite different to drive than my Mustang.

          actually for a well kept well built RR car, thats a pretty good deal, assuming the trans and the engine are nice. 1le turrds are hard to come by

              Yeah, you guys are off with the too much stuff. It comes with the freaking trailer, tires, drivers' suit, etc. You could hook this trailer up, drag it to a track and be racing today.

              Hell, the SCCA VWs we screwed together in college were pushing 10K when all was said and done.

                    I'm pretty sure the auction is just for the car. Not saying if it's a bad deal or not. The trailer, tranny, tires, suit, etc., are listed as "available", which usually means at an extra cost.

                      Proof that GM had some good stuff going in the eighties.

                        I was watching some supercar show on speed , kid was driving a zillion dollar carrera gt
                        reverence , oh he had a woody for this car
                        but hell 600+ hp ain't much
                        600 hp in a flimsy 3rd gen camaro would give you enough drama to last a lifetime

In 1989 GM only made 111 camaros with the 1LE RPO code.Out of the 111 only 37 were built for U.S. the rest for Canada.Very light, quick car for its time.I beat many mustangs & a turbo t-type back in the day with my 1LE. Will be worth a small fortune in the future!

                              they're talking 600hp on a dyno


                              you're thinking "My showroom stock Hemi made 600hp"

                              huge difference. 600 at the wheels would make you crap your pants.
