This topic will be the place I post C8s I come across from now on (providing I am able to keep this topic active enough to not be placed into archives).

With these cars being so rare, and apparently undocumented as to how many were made, I thought I'd try to keep track of how many are out there...

Without further adieu...

The silver C8 with SNAT that sold recently in Denmark was posted about here:

"Jens K" appears to be the new owner. The car is an automatic, stock interior, SNAT, and CamAerobody.

So close you can almost taste it. :eyerole Pictures taken in 2000 of a C8 I didn't know about. Somewhere in California.

Look to the left...

The photographer obviously has blindspots in their vision. Inability to see the color black perhaps...? ;squint:

It's my lucky night for tracking C8s. One for sale in Canada at a rather high price! :) (33,211.69 USD... the Canadian dollar is now worth $0.95 whereas back in 2001 it was worth approximately $0.60.... looks like we all should have converted our money into Euros in European banks!)

New pics have been posted of the blue Camaro with CamAerobody in Ontario...

The person who took the pics said they thought the car was getting a supercharger installed there. I really dislike the graphics, but since mine will one day be blue... it's nice to see a blue one.

I DO like the '96-'97 SS spoiler on it. I would like one of them on my car as well...

do the Denmark clubs have meetings with other Scandinavian Clubs ?

In Finland lives Heimo Huima he has a Callaway Corvette,
In Norway lives Haavard Lien he has a Callaway Corvette LM racer.

Excellent pictures! Your car looks exactly what my Z28 would look like if it had the Callaway CamAerobody! It's not often you see no t-tops and the solid black roof.

Do you know where your car was built?
Was it made in the USA? Or did Callaway in Germany build it? Or was it built by Fornasari in Italy?

As far I know there have been 3 owners in Germany, but I can see in the paper´s tomorrow where is was built.

I know that at least 12 SuperNatural Camaros were made outside of the USA, but I don't know how many C8s. I'd "guess" your C8 is one of those 12.

"SNAT" is just a short-hand version of "SuperNatural" :)

Wow, it's a bit dirty, but it looks all original! Do you have any paperwork that says what number the car is? There were only 19 made. I believe the only option your car is missing is the Callaway interior.

How is the original Calleway interior looks.
Yes it is a bit dirty, but I havent washed it since I boughed it , april month, because I had a heart attack,

I'm sorry about the heart attack. I hope you're okay now!

I read several years ago that the tax on sports cars in Denmark is really high. So there are very very few Camaros and Corvettes. Is it true that many Camaro owners put truck beds in the back of their cars to classify the cars as lightweight trucks? I read this on this website http://www.airstream.dk/Z.htm, but found it hard to believe since I haven't seen pictures elsewhere of Camaros modified as such.

The interior in your car appears to be that of a stock Camaro Z28. Here are some pictures of the Callaway interior pieces. They included wood accents and higher quality leather seat covers with contrast stripes. The wood accents were not popular to get, and several C8s were ordered without the contrast striping on the seats.

Found a GREAT new pic of the HIYOSLVR CamAerobodied Z28 today. High res, and GREAT. (I'm happy).

This pic also likely confirms what Anthony told me--that the car was originally a '97 30th Anniversary Edition. Note the white seats. If the embroidery were visible, it'd be further proof.

Since it's from geocities, if clicking the link doesn't work, add a "?" after the g in "jpg" and hit enter. It should load it up.

I just noticed, the HIYOSLVR car I posted above is very unusual in a way. I just checked, and it is the only CamAerobody with a grill like that. The other ones all have the metal egg crate grill, and completely lack those two plastic columns HIYOSLVR has. I wonder why he opted to not have the eggcrate grill?
