Scooter Anderson purchased himself a brand new Camaro L78 in August 1967 when he was just nineteen years of age. Scooter was familiar with the L78 and his buddy had a 1966 Chevelle, so he was mesmerized by the machine. To him the machine an example of street performance.
He was racing quite often and to add up the odds, Scooter`s 396 Camaro drove quite quicker than the rest of the L78 ones in the close surroundings. Some peeps had an opininon that the engine was a 427 or 425 , featured originally in the factory, but the truth was different. The engine was a 396, though they had to do a check first. When Scooter cashed the last rate of the payment, he transformed the F-body onto a super stocker NHRA., With time it was transformed into a `68 that boosted 275 horsepower and shortly after Scooter released it due its major success. He collected quite many of restored Bow Tie muscle cars and dedicated himself to racecars. Sometime after he made a decision to buy himself a L78 F-body.
