Book Report: The Complete Book of Camaro

This lavishly illustrated book, weighing nearly four lbs., details all five generations of the Camaro’s production run:

This is a Camaro book like no other. The Complete Book of Camaro covers the entire production history of Chevrolet’s iconic pony car, from the original concept car, code-named Panther, to the latest and greatest fifth-generation sensation.

The Complete Book of Camaro showcases in photos, text and technical specifications every model since 1967. If Chevrolet built it, it is here.

This lavishly illustrated book, weighing nearly four lbs., details all five generations of the Camaro’s production run: the original models developed to fight the Mustang in the pony car wars of the late 1960s; the second-generation cars that became icons of American automotive styling in the 1970s; the third-gen cars that helped to lead the muscle car renaissance of the 1980s; the refined fourth-generation models that continued to demonstrate GM’s engineering prowess through the 1990s; and finally, the blockbuster new fifth-generation Camaro that has taken the world by storm.

Muscle car enthusiasts and auto historians alike will revel at the book’s in-depth data and details on the body, interior and engines that created this American driving icon.

In addition to the production vehicles, ­ prototypes, show cars, anniversary editions and pace cars are also covered.

With extensive details, specifications, hundreds of photographs and a trick book cover featuring an RS-model headlight door that slides open when the book is opened, The Complete Book of Camaro is the ultimate resource on Chevrolet’s legendary pony car.

The book makes a perfect gift for a technician or shop owner whose heart for the Camaro runs deep.
