Not Black and White: 1979 Chevrolet Camaro

This next car leaves us with more questions than answers, because at first glance it appears to be an ex-CHP car sold by the CHP Museum near Sacramento, but the listing states that this was never an actual California Highway Patrol car. Why does it look like this? That’s some thing the seller needs to answer. And it needs significant work to get back on the road. Find this 1979 Chevrolet Camaro offered for $5000 in Sacramento, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
