At $12,995, does the 2001 Chevy Camaro SS SLP totally smack?

Good Price or No Dice 2001 Chevy Camaro SS SLP

Street Legal Performance was founded in 1987 by former cyclist Ed Hamburger. today Good price or no dice The Camaro is a rare SS engine equipped with SLP technology. Let’s see if its price tag takes the cake.

Just like Rodney Dangerfield, Alfa Romeo owners tend to be disrespectful. Owning an Alfa means you’ll never be required to drive in carpools, struggle to do so with a common side hustle, and turn away pregnant ladies who need to be rushed to the hospital despite their craziness—a icing on the cake. This is all due to Alfa’s perceived reputation for unreliability and thus the chance of being left stuck on the side of the road.

Winning or not, this stigma damages Alfa’s demand and therefore values. For example, yesterday’s seller 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV6 He asked for $29,500 for what was presented as a very well kept car. The thing is, in this case, Hagerti values ​​the model at only $26,000. As everyone knows, Hagerti tends to collect such ratings. It’s not all wasted on most of you who gave Alpha a scathing reprimand in the form of a no-return loss of 87 percent.

Now, one thing I need to make clear about yesterday’s GTV6 is that there was no inconsistency in the announcement regarding engine displacement as I originally thought. While the ad made reference to “3.0L S cams” it referred to the updated cams themselves and not the engine displacement, which as the spoils badge indicated, was 2.5L. I was obviously confused by the description but received clarification in a friendly email from the publisher’s son. 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, because it looks sinister rather than ridiculous and alarming rather than growing a mullet. Plus there are all those Ss in badges.

Part of that comes from Street Legal Performance (SLP), a Livonia, Michigan department store that has been selling 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-adjusted version of the Pontiac Firebird. The company later branched out to include that other member of the F-Body family, the Camaro.

This one has an SLP badge and dual exhaust, but since SLP cars can be selected with a number of different upgrades, it’s hard to say how deep the checkbook this car originally went. Suffice it to say it has a 327-horsepower LS1 V8 under the hood and a four-speed automatic assist. Other non-SLP options here include a T-top roof and Super Sport badges. Fortunately for the curious, the SLP is still at work And they should be able to provide a full list of options if you give the vehicle a VIN.

This may be beneficial given that the car appears to be in good condition despite its 165,000-mile life and age. It appears more black on black on black when wheels are added to the equation. This is all complemented by a gold-plated accent on the hood scoop (functional). The shot under the hood would have been great, but the seller didn’t seem to find this detail important. Probably because they were taking pictures of the car in the middle of what appeared to be an intersection and needed to move quickly.

On the downside, there is some obvious pepper on the nose (highway miles?), and the headlight lenses are starting to turn somewhat yellow. These are fairly minor quirks, but they should be noted. We may also wish to discuss factory black lacquered alloys. Should those have a bright lip or is this evidence eventually eroded by too many car washes?

Well, I really grab the straw here when I think of something to avoid this car for. I think we can also put it to the seller for not providing any kind of maintenance history in the ad description. On the plus side, it comes with a clean title.

What might all this be worth for atypical Camaro fans? The ad lists the price at $12,995, and now we (and others) have to think about that. what do you say? Would Street Legal Performance Modifications (whatever that might entail) make that price tag for an old Camaro? Or, even with SLP bits, would you tell the seller a GTFO to order that much?

It’s your decision!
