Hurley's Camaro is a Chevrolet Camaro (ca. 1970–1972) that originally belonged to his father, David Reyes. When David left his family in 1987, the Camaro remained in Hurley's possession. ("Tricia Tanaka Is Dead") After returning from the Island, Hurley drove the car during a car chase with the police. ("The Beginning of the End")

Before Hurley's time on the Island

In 1987, David Reyes and his son were working on trying to fix the seemingly broken car, but to no avail. They came to the conclusion that it needed a new carburetor. David told his son that they had to postpone their work on the car because he had to leave for Las Vegas. Subsequently, he would leave his family for 17 years. ("Tricia Tanaka Is Dead")

In 2004, following Hurley's lottery win, David Reyes returned to his family at the request of his wife, trying to talk Hurley out of his belief that his lottery numbers were cursed. To his surprise, he found out that Hurley had kept the car for 17 years, still in the same state it had been when he had left his family. David tried to talk Hurley into trying to fix the car again, but instead, Hurley decided to leave for Australia. ("Tricia Tanaka Is Dead")

David began work on the Camaro some time after the crash, as a tribute to Hurley. After the rescue, David gave the Camaro to Hurley for his birthday. Hurley got in, and freaked out when he saw that the odometer read "481516 - 2342", saying that he didn't want it. ("There's No Place Like Home, Part 1"). Some time later, following a run-in with what he believed to be the ghost of Charlie Pace, he fled in the car, resulting in a car chase with the police. The chase began at the convenience store where he had had the vision. The chase continued into an industrial area where he drove it through a stack of papayas.

The chase then continued onto a freeway where it was filmed by a helicopter television news crew from Action 8 News, and broadcast live, where Jack observed it while having a drink. The car chase ended near a "Circuit House" store parking lot with the Camaro becoming airborne and subsequently crashing into a Golden Pontiac, followed by Hurley's arrest by the police. This final sequence was filmed by his former boss and employee Randy Nations, who was working at the Circuit House. ("The Beginning of the End")
