    I don't remember what year this one is, but I thought it was special. It belongs to my step son, and was given to him by his dad.

    Jack, the pics of the Camaro were taken about two weeks ago, with the cell phone that I am now having trouble with!

    I never like the looks of the Camaro untill last years model came out. They were always under powered all the way back into the '60's.

    Ever driven a Gen 4, LS1 powered Camaro? May have been many things but underpowered they weren't

    Very nice. I have always been a fan of the Camaro. Way back in '67 I purchased a new bright red SS, 350, four speed. I wouldn't have called it under powered. Sorry no pictures.

    I don't recall ever seeing that exact body style. Wife loves her 2010.

    Early 80's judging by the front end. Can't say I've ever seen one with that back portion though. Very cool.

    That body style ran from 1982 to 1992. I have an '83. That one sure looks sharp, though.

    the 1968 camaro i have came equiped with a 396 c.i./375 h.p.engine, 4 speed transmission and a 12 bolt rear with a 4:88 posi track
    375 hp was pretty impressive back then

    it ran a 12.20 @102.77 mph and 12.63 @104.28 mph through the 1/4 mile

    the 2012 Camaro SS is motivated by a 6.2-liter V8 that can be had in two forms depending on transmission selection. When coupled with the six-speed automatic transmission, the SS is good for 400 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, while opting for the manual gearbox will net an additional 26 horsepower and 10 torque, for a grand total of 426 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque.
