Watch This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro With 3,000-HP Take On A 1955 Chevrolet

The Chevrolet Camaro is a highly desirable American automotive icon with a lot of history. When Chevy debuted the Camaro in the late 1960s to compete with Ford’s Mustang, no one knew if it would be as successful.

However, six-generations and 5 million cars sold highlight that success. Even though the future of the Camaro is uncertain, the love for the first-generation continues.

Celebrities like Joe Rogan and his modified 1969 Camaro and Kevin Hart with his “Bad News” Camaro show that this classic muscle car is here to stay.

If you’re interested in getting into a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, expect to pay big money. According to ClassicCars.com, prices range from $ 50,000 on the low end to $ 180,000 on the high end.

With that in mind, there are many things we love about the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro and their ability to dominate on the drag strip is a big deal. Not only are muscle car enthusiasts getting under 10 second quarter-mile times, but some are even getting under 6 seconds!

One such enthusiast who achieved a sub six-second quarter-mile time is Tom Bailey from Sick Seconds Bailey Racing. In his recent YouTube video, he takes his twin-turbo 1969 Chevrolet Camaro with over 3000 hp to the Bradenton Motorsports Park drag strip to race Alex Taylor in an equally quick 1955 Chevy.


1969 Chevy VS 1955 Chevy Drag Race

While there were several notable races of the day which include several classic muscle cars of the era, the main star race of the video is between Tom Bailey and Alex Taylor. Tom’s 2.0-liter Camaro received a new engine recently and is in tip-top shape for the track.

Even though the 1955 Chevy is incredibly fast, Tom’s 1969 Camaro wins the race and a check for $ 5,000. While winning is important, it is nice to see everyone having a good time on the track whether you win or lose.

End Of The Camaro As We Know It

2022 Chevrolet Camaro ZR1

As the six-generation Camaro discontinues production in 2024, many fans wonder what’s next for Chevy’s flagship muscle car.

As the Camaro sales numbers continue to decline year after year, Chevrolet may focus their efforts elsewhere. We can only speculate for now, but we hope the Camaro names lives on.
