Starship Edition: 1985 Chevrolet Camaro Berlinetta
In 1984, Chevrolet released an upmarket well-equipped version of the Camaro that they badged as the Berlinetta. Actually, it wasn’t purely upmarket, because you could get it with the abysmal V6, but it was exotic in its interior accoutrements — specifically a sweet fighter-jet inspired cockpit that added driver centric instrument panels that could telescope in/out and a radio that could be rotated…it was seriously futuristic stuff…and GM discontinued it in 1986. Oh GM. Never change guys, never change. Find this 1985 Chevrolet Camaro Berlinetta offered for $4000 in Spokane, WA via craigslist. Tip from TeleArrow.
Whoa. Stop the presses. When did Elvis move to the Pacific Northwest? And why would the King sell is Berlinetta Camaro? And what is he holding in his hand? Is that a garage door opener? Or a factory flashlight? A hunka hunka burning love?

Used to be owned by an exotic peacock dealers til he got busted selling them to people to eat, or that’s how the story I know goes.
Telescopic instrument panels, swivel radio, power locks windows and hatch, lights and what not all work. Few dents but an unmolested third gen.
New speakers, new headliner, runs and rides great.

a Digital dash readout 37 model years ago? and it still functions? that is a starship. perhaps it traveled through a time altering wormhole. and OK, the wheel & main panel are black, but the interior upholstery color is so much more interesting than most anything from the 21st c.
Trivia: One of the first recorded uses of “tastes like chicken” comes from a writer in ancient Rome who couldn’t understand what the deal was with fancy diners serving peacock meat.
In addition to looking like Elvis, it appears the owner also has a mid ’70s Cutlass, a ’56 Chevy, and a dump truck. Sounds like a rather interesting character.
