Street Legal Performance was founded in 1987 by the deliciously named Ed Hamburger, a former drag racer. Today’s No nice price or dice The Camaro is a rare SLP boosted SS. Let’s see if his price takes the cake.
Like Rodney Dangerfield, Alfa Romeo owners get no respect. Owning an Alfa means you’ll almost never be asked to drive in a car park, you won’t have to struggle to drive it by carpooling, and you won’t have to miss pregnant women because they’re crazy and need to be taken to the hospital. crowning. It all comes down to Alfa’s perceived reputation for unreliability and therefore the chance of being stranded on the side of the road.
Earned or not, this stigma hurts Alpha demand and therefore values. For example, yesterday’s seller 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV6 asking $29,500 for what was presented as a very nicely maintained car. The point is that in this case, Hagerty values the model at only $26,000. And as everyone knows, Hagerty pays attention to such assessments. Many of you did not lose, giving Alpha a bitter rebuke in the form of an 87 percent No Dice loss.
Now, one thing I need to clear up about yesterday’s GTV6 is that there isn’t an inconsistency in the engine displacement ad that I originally thought. While the ad mentions “3.0-liter S cams,” that refers to the updated cams themselves, not the 2.5-liter engine displacement, as noted on the loot tag. I’m obviously confused by the description, but I got an explanation from the poster’s son in a friendly email. Thanks, Todd!

It could be construed that Camaro owners suffer in respect to respect as well. I mean, the general stereotype surrounding the car is of mullet-wearing, hair metal-listening Budweiser-swillers. That perception may change with today’s 2001 Chevy Camaro SS SLP, however, looks more sinister than silly and represents danger as opposed to mullet growth. Plus there are all those S’s on the badge.
Part of that comes from Street Legal Performance (SLP), a Livonia, Michigan-based shop that has been selling go-faster parts for pony cars since the late 1980s. Founded by drag racer Ed Hamburger, the company’s first SLP-branded car was a performance-tuned edition of the Pontiac Firebird. The company later branched out to include the Camaro, another member of the F-Body family.
This car has an SLP badge and dual exhaust, but since SLP cars can be optioned with a number of different upgrades, it’s hard to tell how deep this car goes into the checkbook. Suffice it to say, it has a 327-horsepower LS1 V8 under the hood and a four-speed automatic to back it up. Other non-SLP options here include a T-top roof and Super Sport badge. Fortunately for those interested, SLP is is still in business and should be able to provide a complete options list if given the vehicle’s VIN.
This can be valuable because the car looks in great shape despite its age and 165,000 miles. When wheels are added to the equation, it presents black on black, more black. All of this is complemented by a gold-painted accent on the (functional) hood scoop. A shot from under the hood would be nice, but the seller doesn’t seem to have considered this detail important. Maybe it’s because they were photographing a car in the middle of an intersection and had to move quickly.
On the downside, there is some peppering that is evident on the nose (trunk shafts?) and the headlight lenses are starting to yellow a bit. These are fairly minor quibbles, but they should be noted. We may also want to discuss black painted factory alloys. Are they supposed to have glossy lips, or does that evidence wear off the finish from too many car washes?
Ok, I’m really looking for straws here when I think of something to avoid this car. I suppose we can do the same for a seller who doesn’t provide any service history in the ad description. On the plus side, it comes with a clean title.
What might it all be worth to the non-stereotypical Camaro fan? The ad lists the price at $12,995, and we have to discuss that now. What are you saying? Do Street Legal Performance mods (whatever they are) make it worth the price for this old Camaro? Or even with the SLP bits, would you tell the seller to GTFO for charging so much?
