The first Chevrolet Camaros started rolling off the assembly line and into dealerships in late 1966, GM's answer to the Mustang. More than 220,000 were sold in this introductory year, including over 25,000 convertibles. Base price for a 6-cylinder coupe was slightly more than $2400.00. This "First Generation" of Camaros lasted from 1967 to 1969 and introduced the Z28 to the automotive world. 1970 to 1981 saw the "Second Generation" and the loss of the convertible option although T-Tops were available from 1978 on. For the 1982 model year, the Camaro was re-styled and the "Third Generation" was born. The "Fourth Generation" started in 1993 and has continued until the announcement of the discontinuation of the Camaro line in 2002. There were no Camaros produced for model years 2003 to 2009. However, in March of 2009 Chevrolet started production on a new "Fifth Generation" Camaro for the 2010 model year which lasted until 2015. Production of the "Sixth Generation" Camaro started in November of 2015 for the 2016 model year and is currently still being produced.
The last 50 plus years have seen many changes in the Camaro line, but the one thing that hasn't changed has been the fact that it is one of the powerhouses of the Muscle Car world. Camaros are seen in shows across the country in every condition from a pristine, numbers-matching '68 rally-sport convertible to a full blown 1970 Pro-Street modified car. They bear names like Yenko, Dana and Baldwin/Motion. They've been passenger cars, pace cars and police cars. Big block or small block, the Camaro has been a force to reckon with since its conception.
