Camaro ready to roll

The Florida Highway Patrol will begin taking delivery of 200 new Chevrolet Camaro patrol cars this month. In addition to the installation of the radio system and new low profile Whelen light bars, each trooper who will be issued the high performance patrol car must complete a five-hour familiarization class on the handling, braking and acceleration of the 310 horsepower vehicle.
