This week on The J-Turn, Jessi Lang takes a road trip up to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca where she gets seat time in one of the most coveted relics from the classic muscle car era: a 1969 Camaro Z/28 from the Original Trans Am Series. With 500 horsepower, unassisted brakes, and a deafening open exhaust, this car isn’t for the weak or weary— it’s for people like Jessi, who lives for track days and who forsakes the earplugs to savor each growl. See how Jessi and this iconic classic fare at one of North America’s most technical and challenging tracks.
