V.I.S.I.T. – Hot Red: 1975 Chevrolet Camaro RS Sport Coupe


This is the kind of stuff you want to see parked across the street. A 1975 Camaro RS in arrest-me red. 5.7 litres of the good stuff behind that chrome-bumpered nose cone.

Fat tires, chrome wheels. And then you see the child seat in the cabin. Someone’s raisin’ their kids right. You know, it’s either this or the Espace.


The grille looks like it’s ready to suck in unwitting little dogs.


Around this time, a frankly ridiculous heat wave descended upon our little town. The Camaro must’ve felt right at home, since the mercury rose to almost Southern state levels.


Off the top of my head, I’d say the Camaro has spent at least 20-25 years in this country. It’s probably done its share of donuts and peelouts by now. And not all of them in reverse, either.

    That's cool – someone grafted on an earlier front end, from a '70 or '71. I've always preferred the round taillight design, but the wraparound backlite (rear windshield).

    The italicized RS looks weird, though. And the front bumper is strange, like they took one from something else and cut it up.

        I thought so too, yeah…

    The split bumper should look like this:

      I think this one is a '73 with the larger center bar (although that's the first I've seen that's body color). The red one is custom, made to mimic the '70-'73 RS.
      The factory nose in '75 was the sugar scoop headlight buckets:

    Those are definitely factory GM door hinges, though.

    Nice find. I hope the driver has a mullet.

        I've been wanting to pull up to a dude in a Challenger and pronounce my appreciation by telling the driver "bitchin'".
        Just bitchin'…
