In its day, this police pursuit version of the Chevrolet Camaro was hard to outrun, packing LS1 V-8 power.
This one is a former Florida Highway Patrol car and comes with all kinds of fun accessories.
With five days to go and no reserve, bidding on the Bring a Trailer online auction is currently at $4200.
As Chevrolet prepares to send its Camaro muscle car off to the big scrapyard in the sky in January 2024, here's a brief homage to the Camaro you really didn't ever want to see. When zipping down one of Florida's highways in the early 2000s, the sight of a black and tan coupe snorting up behind you with its blue lights strobing was inevitably accompanied by a sinking feeling located in the area of your wallet. But now you can turn the tables (just not in Florida).
Today's pick at Bring a Trailer—which, like Car and Driver, is part of Hearst Autos—is this former Florida State Patrol Camaro with the B4C Special Service package. Assuming you discount stickered-up exotics and Corvettes usually used for police PR events, this is probably the quickest a working highway pursuit vehicle ever got.
Essentially a Z/28 package with fewer amenities and no T-tops, the B4C has a 5.7-liter LS1 V-8 under its hood, a four-speed automatic transmission, and a knack for catching up to scofflaws. In its retirement, it's a fun way to play cops and robbers dress-up, particularly as this example comes with a Florida Highway Patrol uniform, jacket, and hat.
We mentioned the just-not-in-Florida part, right? FHP would not be amused to see this car on the road in their home state. This cruiser is currently registered in Virginia and would be fine to bring to shows in many states. Or you can of course bring a trailer.
What would be the most fun for this old cop car is to invest in a couple of drag radials and head to your local run-what-ya-brung Friday-night drag races. Fans of horsepower never wanted to see this car coming up fast in the rearview, but the crowd would surely cheer to see it running down the strip with the light bar on.
With five days to go until the auction ends on November 15, the high bid is $4200, and there's no reserve. If you want to live out your highway patrol fantasies, just head over to Bring a Trailer to make your bid. Just, let's say it all together: not in Florida.
