Camaro ZL1 “Freedom Fighter” - When Performance Meets the Military [Photo Gallery]
Owned by Kelly Fromm, the Camaro ZL1 pictured above is not your daily beefed up muscle car. Besides having a reworked exterior and a wide body, “Project Freedom Fighter” is both a statement and a tribute car.
Built to tour the US and raise funds for non-profit associations that help men and women that serviced the military, the Freedom Fighter ZL1 is a rolling work of art. Mix an aggressive body shell with an 850 HP engine and an emotional paintjob and this is what you get. A show stopper... a mean yet noble-purposed piece of machinery.
Fromm started working on the Camaro in June 2012, and thanks to Livernois Motorsports and Stingray Garage he managed to get it ready just in time for SEMA 2012. Since then, the vehicle has been touring the United States with great success. “The response to the car has been incredible,” said Fromm. “When you see peoples’ emotional response to the car, that’s when you know you’ve done it correctly.”
Though it stands on 22-inch wheels, which are no Hoosiers, the Freedom Fighter ZL1 has seen some dragstrip action as well. “I run it at the strip just as you see it. So far my best E.T. is 11.2 at 130 mph – with very limited traction.”
