The ultimate Camaro: Dan and RJ Gottlieb’s Big Red


At 50, the Camaro has fought its way into our hearts to become as much an American icon as its chief rival, the Ford Mustang. Camaros blitzed the dragstrip, hammered through the corners in Trans-Am racing, and were even reborn in 1/64th scale as the very first Hot Wheels ever made.

I had the pleasure of seeing Big Red in person at Dan and RJ’s shop. Truly an impressive car and RJ’s driving equally as impressive. Dan helped me start out in SCCA racing at Willow Springs. He had me bring my MR2 to his shop so his team could properly prepare it for my first race in Showroom Stock C. Thanks Dan. Great to see the legend of Big Red not only lives on but is still going strong.
