Pink Camaro is More Than Just a Pretty Car

Liza Pancho once thought she was getting pulled over by a police officer to be given a ticket. Instead, the officer asked if he could take photos of her car.

It’s a vehicle that attracts plenty of attention — a pink 2014 Chevrolet Camaro 2LS Coupe.

“He wanted to get a picture because his daughter likes pink cars,” Liza said.

Liza purchased the Camaro from Runde Chevrolet in white, and then had it painted with a temporary coating called Plasti Dip.

“That’s my favorite color, pink,” she said.12043140_10207876888066062_7598473471908830881_n

When she was considering buying the vehicle, she asked for opinions from her three children and got an enthusiastic response.12190053_10207876888386070_4621844991532645693_n

“I asked my son about it and he likes the Camaro because of Bumblebee on ‘Transformers,'” she said. “He was so excited. He wants me to pick him up at school all the time.”

Liza, a Registered Medical Assistant at Kaplan University, enjoys racing the Camaro in AutoCross competitions. The events feature obstacle courses marked by cones. Drivers navigate the course once at a time, racing the clock.

“You meet a lot of people and you see different cars,” she said.

The Dubuque resident was named the 2015 F Street Ladies Class Champion in the Great River Region of the Sports Car Club of America.
