Abandoned Pro Street-Style Camaro in… Panama?

Yep, you read that right. In a small country full of mountainous terrain, there aren’t many options for drag racing other than one non-operating run-down airstrip, where the grass is literally growing through the tarmac. Not quite the ideal plateau for all out Pro Street cars. Thus, when we spotted this Pro Street-esque Camaro in its abandoned state via a post on GoneDragRacing.com, in a place where there’s literally nowhere to put this car to good use, it struck us as slightly odd and out of place.

At the only track in commission the usual sight is the ‘import/tuner’ crowd, full of Mitsubishis, Nissans, and Subarus. Though we’ve heard there is rumor of some big tire American muscle breaking into the single digits. Back to the Camaro, resting idle in an abandoned driveway seemingly forgotten about for years. Flat tires, missing windows and paint that seems to have faded a fair bit, despite the not so great image quality, really shows us this car has been sitting for at least a few years. The house it lays outside of has been vacant for years, with no signs of anyone residing there.

If that isn’t strange enough in itself, the engine seems to still be there as indicated by the blue tarp covering what we’re assuming is the intake poking through the hood, where a scoop likely used to be. Judging by the absence of any un-orthodox exhaust or turbo inlets in the fascia, it was likely either a big inch N/A or nitrous motor. The observers are curious as to the car’s origin, asking anyone who might recognize the car to speak up so that any info can be sought after as to the car’s former or current ownership. While we can’t say anything official, it’s extremely likely and possible that the car was stolen from somewhere, as it’s unlikely someone would import such a car just to let it rust away. Will this 4th Gen Camaro get a chance to hit the 1320 again? Or is its fate sealed sitting there to become one with the earth?
