Chevrolet - Camaro
The first-generation Chevrolet Camaro debuted in September 1966, for the 1967 model year, up to 1969 on a brand new rear-wheel drive GM F-body platform and would be available as a 2-door, 2+2 seating, coupe or convertible with a choice of inline-6 and 327cid,350cid,396cid or a 427cid V8 powerplants.  Concerned with the runaway success of the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet executives realized that their compact sporty car, the Corvair, would not be able to generate the sales volume of the Mustang due to its radical rear-engine design, as well as declining sales, partly due to bad publicity from Ralph Nader's book, Unsafe at Any Speed.

Therefore, the Camaro was touted as having the same conventional rear-drive, front-engine configuration as Mustang and Chevy II. In addition, the Camaro was designed to fit a variety of power plants in the engine bay. The first-generation Camaro would last until the 1969 model year and would eventually inspire the design of the new retro fifth-generation Camaro. Introduced to market in February 1970 and ending in 1981, the second-generation Chevrolet Camaro would be in production for a total of 11 years. This generation of Camaro was the best-selling ever. The car grew somewhat larger and wider with the new styling, thus resulting in a much heavier car. Still based on the F-body platform, the new Camaro was engineered much like its predecessor in that it still used a unibody structure with a front subframe, leaf springs in the back and A-arms up front for suspension. The car would see major changes in both styling and performance as time progressed from the introduction through the end of second-generation production in 1981. Also, the Z28 model became popular once again.

 

Camaros were one of the prominent vehicles in the Trans-Am Series, having won the title in 1968 and 1969 (piloted by Mark Donahue) and were in use in the league until the late 1990's. The Camaro was the official car of and the car used in the International Race of Champions from 1975 to 1989. Third and Fourth generation Camaros are also currently raced in the SCCA American Sedan series and other SCCA classes. It is also one of the most popular cars in NHRA Sportsman Drag Racing.
