Default What is an "F1" Camaro?

I have a 1998 F1 Camaro. I don't exactly know what this means but searches that I have done indicate it resembles a "WS6" package for the trans am. It has an emblem on the console that says "GM Performance Parts Specialty Vehicle". As far as collector value - forget it! I have blueprinted the motor, different cam ( TPIS ZL11 w/ 1.8:1 HS)and heads, LT headers and all the suspension mods. It's a great street car with 380RWH @ 5400 and 390RWT @4800 and 300RWT from 2000 to 6000+.

The car has F1 emblems on the side and I have only seen 1 other. The original rear ratio was 2.73 - I've changed it to 3.73.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks
