Second Generation: 1970 ½ – 1981
1970 ½ Camaro Z/28
Inspired by Ferrari’s the Camaro’s exterior design was radically different in the 1970’s. Over all, the Camaro grew larger in every dimension: weight, length, and width. Other changes were made to the suspension and steering, but in all the package was pretty much the same as before.
The best of this breed though has to be the 1970 ½ Z/28. The LT-1 V8 proved good for 360-horsepower, could be had with an automatic transmission, and because it was a Z/28 it handled well too. Unfortunately, the LT-1 only endured for that first year and was discontinued after.
