1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe – 4-Speed Manual True SS car

Some time ago I was given the opportunity to be the curator/keeper/custodian of this historic car.

I like to think that, even if you own a car like this, your goal is to take care of it, and pass it along to the next generations when the time comes.

La Catanga

Corria el año 1946 cuando mis abuelos Armando Vivani (paterno) y Eduardo Divito (materno), se juntaban despues de trabajar en la Gomeria “Merlo” en la ciudad de 9 de Julio – Buenos Aires.

Alli se dedicaban a preparar La Catanga, un auto de carreras que corria Armando Vivani los fines de semana en circuitos locales de tierra.


La Catanga tenia motor de Ford “T” y se pasaban gran parte de la tarde y noche rebajando la tapa de cilindros y multiples de escape y de admision “a lima”.


Ese viejo modelo “T” llegaba a levantar 100/120 Km/h en las rectas !
