    GHOST CAR: A 1979 CAMARO THAT WAS USED IN BOSNIAN WAR



    Armies all around the world are always trying to use the most modern machines in order to successfully complete tasks in the roughest conditions and cruel battles. The war in Bosnia from 1992 to 1995 wasn't less cruel than any other war. However, during this war, one supply machine was different than others-a 2nd gen Chevrolet Camaro aka "Ghost Car".



    Usually, supply cars are SUVs that can barely go over 50 mph. So, a Camaro used in war was not only unusual, but very clever.........that is, of course, when you modify it to a certain degree.





    The Ghost Camaro was the brainchild of a Danish Special Forces officer Helge Meyer, who was on duty at the Rhine Main Air Force Base when the war in Bosnia started. The amazing thing is that Meyer never carried a weapon during this war, earning his nickname "Guds Rambo" ("God's Rambo"). His only weapon was the stealth muscle car.




    So, what did Meyer equip his car with? Well, he removed the rear window and put a metal panel instead, and added a ram bar at the front. And do you see that extra panel under the front of the car? Well, that's not just a panel....it's a mine-clearing blade. And if you take a closer look at the radiator grill, you'll notice a cute yellow rubber duck.........I don't why that's there.
    Apart from that, the US airforce also provided him with kevlar panels, steel-plated windows, paint that absorbs infra-red light, run-flat tires, heat detection, night vision and nitrous (which was there only for serious "get the hell out" situations). The original 5.7- litre V8 Camaro was tuned from 185hp to 220hp, and when nitrous was applied, the output increased to 440hp.


    The entire car was basically an armor on wheels, but it was still very quick. It could accelerate to 200 km/h in 13 seconds. Steel plates were also put behind the seats and across the entire underside of the car. The doors and trunk were lined with Kevlar, and the driver also had radio equipment, fire extinguishers and two spare tires. Despite having all of those things inside, Meyer was able to fit extra 400kg of necessary food or sanitary supplies into the Ghost Camaro.





    Meyer's and Camaro's missions were astonishing, making deliveries during night and day. When not on duty, the car was very good at hiding from the police and army. Sure, Meyer was chased in it and the car even took a few bullets, but the damage was never big thanks to Meyer's well-timed nitrous shots, great knowledge of back roads, and Camaro's ability to be invisible on radars. That's why it was known as the "Ghost Car". At one moment it was there, at the other...well, it wasn't.





    So, what happened to the car? Well, after the war ended, Meyer returned to his home...and brought the Camaro with him. Now, 20 years later, the Ghost Car is still in his garage. The color was changed into orange, but everything else stayed the same, even the original 5.7-litre V8 engine. Helge Meyer is now retired, and drives his muscle car very often, clocking over 1 million kilometers on it. Congratulations, Meyer! A big salute to you, and the car that followed you in rough times.
