    Mach 1 , 3 Z28s.

    They were all fun but the favorite I think would be the 6-speed Z28.

    I like the reborn Camaro, it faithfully pays homage to the original '60s car, at least in appearance.

    Yenko Camaro 427

    "In 1967 Don Yenko ordered L-78 equipped SS Camaros and swapped in the Chevrolet Corvette's L-72 427 inĀ³ (7.0 L) V8. The cars came with a 4.10 rear end and heavy-duty suspension. The exact number of cars produced is not known; most estimates are around 50. Yenko also installed a fiberglass replacement hood similar to the "Stinger" hood featured on 1967 big-block Corvettes."

    And as far as favorites go, my dream is to restore a '66 GTO and a '68 Charger. Seeing both of those at the Dream Cruise when I was a child, began my utter love for cars and horsepower.

    I'd still have the '69, if it wasn't stolen and wrecked:headache: I had some serious plans for it.

    The name does not exist at all on the Spanish motor market and it took me a while to work out why.

    LOL! I heard about that. Doesn't it meant something dodgy, like 'no go', or 'dick' or sumthin?
