2014 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible

I first caught a glimpse of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro in person at the New York Auto Show, and the Convertible version (by way of pictures) at its far-flung debut in Germany. As a car writer, a V8 enthusiast, a convertible diehard and, most days, no fool, I've wanted to get my turn in this very car ever since.

    Video: 200-mph Camaro dyno run is a blow out

    What's the best way to get the tires off the rims quickly? Not by running the thing at 200 miles per hour on the dyno and having them explode, we're quite sure.
