1967 SS/RS Camaro “Jenny” the Camaro
While this car was never in a movie or television series, it should have been. “Jenny” the Camaro was owned by the original Little Old Lady from Pasadena, the go-granny-go made famous by The Beach Boys song. Her real name was Betty.
In 1967, Betty purchased this 1967 Camaro for speed and comfort. She special-ordered the Super Sport and Rally Sport options, a 295-horse 350 with a Powerglide transmission, and other unusual options. Betty named her new car “Jenny” and drove it 137,000 miles. In 1992, “Jenny” was parked, set on blocks, and covered.
Adopted at birth, Zach Straits met his birth mother in 2006. The self-described “car nut” learned of his Grandma Betty and her “Jenny,” its history, and lore. In 2012, “Jenny” moved to Zach’s home in Virginia and is known as the most-storied barn find ever. A future restoration is planned.
