For those who’ve never been to California, let me be the first to tell you – it’s a huge state. As gorgeous and scenic as it is, it’s very possible to get lost in the twisty, turny roads of the desert, mountain, and valley roads. It can happen to anyone that’s not familiar with the area, even if you have a decent GPS system.
That’s just what happened to a pair of Gen-5 Camaro owners over the weekend. According to a recent thread on Corvette7.com, the pair of Camaros missed their turn, and stumbled upon this all-black 2014 Stingray by accident! As Camaro5 board member, Schmidty, puts it,
“ChargedCamaro and I went for a cruise today up to Borrego Springs to enjoy our cars in the awesome California weather (went from 52 degrees and snow to 84 and sun in the matter of minutes)! Thank God my buddy has no sense of direction because we missed our turn at the bottom of the mountain, but when we went back this Black Beauty had just parked in a lot we were about to pass. ChargedCamaro redeemed himself and pointed out this lucky find so we cornered the cornered in the lot and blocked all exits!
Turns out there were a couple prototype Corvette’s doing some testing on the mountain. We chatted up the Development Engineer and asked if we could take pics. I believe this Black One is the Sport Prototype and they were testing steering. The red one was on the mountain with a large black van behind it (secret service? haha). The engineers joked that it was protected by Pit Bulls. I asked about the blue one which we had seen pics of the crash on different blogs. He mentioned it was a friend of his who was driving it and that it had also recently been on the mountain. Anyway, wanted to share a few pics. This car is absolutely beautiful in person! ENJOY!
PS..we did ask about the 6th Gen Camaro. haha! And like all good employees who love their job…they had no comment. Very friendly guys who thanked us for driving GM cars. And no pics of the red one…we passed her on the mountain and it wasnt a good time to stop.”
