Vintage Fleet: 1990 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z28

This 1990 Chevrolet Camaro Iroc Z28 is a hard top with a 5.7 liter tuned port injection V-8engine.  The vehicle is a replica of a car that was marked and used as an Ohio State Highway Patrol Car in the 1990’s after being seized in an auto title fraud investigation.  In 1993, the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Auto Title Fraud Unit confiscated three Chevrolet IROC Z Camaros. After the Patrol equipped the cars with emergency lights, Patrol markings and other items, they deployed them for traffic enforcement.

Eventually, the Patrol stopped using the Camaros for traffic enforcement, since the low clearance made pursuits difficult. Instead, the Camaros were featured in parades and special events.

The OSHP destroyed the Camaros after they were retired from service, since stolen vehicles like these are not clearly titled. The car in the Vintage Fleet is a replica.

The OSHP’s Auto Title Fraud Unit investigations have resulted in the confiscation of a great deal of valuable property,
