2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Rubs Shoulders With Its Peers at Tuners and Tea
January 16, 2014
If I were to purchase a 2014 SLP Panther Camaro, this is precisely the kind of place I would take it. A twist on the popular Cars and Coffee series of meet-ups for hard-core car guys, Tuners and Tea is another local car gathering that met up in a local Southern California parking lot earlier this month.
The event was full of the kind of car owners that the SLP Panther appeals to: people who love modifying their cars, and enthusiasts and historians who pride themselves on knowing every detail of the spec sheets. Most of all, everyone here wants California's car culture to continue to thrive.
Foreign and domestic cars, modern and classic hot rods, finished show pieces and function-only beaters missing their fenders were all in attendance.
This is the kind of meet where the Panther Camaro and its driver feel right at home and even a bit conservative by comparison.
Several people commented on the look of the SLP, their opinion of the refreshed taillights and as always, the most attention it got was when I turned the key and the blown V8 thundered to life. The supercharged SLP sometimes feels like a square peg in a round hole when you're commuting in rush-hour traffic, but at a meet like Tuners and Tea, it fit right in.
