When the Camaro was introduced in 1967 as an answer to the wildly popular Mustang and the "pony car" category it created, the Chevrolet response proved to be very popular in its own right. Of course, every successful act needs an encore, and what followed was the second-generation Camaro, produced from early 1970 until 1981. The new model was a dramatic departure from its predecessor, with a body style and features that evolved steadily over its 12-year production run. From the early years featuring LT1 engines, a multitude of performance packages and dramatic euro styling, to the later years when comfort replaced performance in many aspects, the second-generation Camaro remains extremely popular today.

Whether you have an SS, Z/28, Rally Sport, Type LT, Sport Coupe, or Berlinetta,The Definitive Camaro Guide: 1970-1/2 - 1981showcases the various cosmetic, interior, powertrain, and chassis changes that occurred on all models through the years. Heavily illustrated, the book features more than 450 images detailing the correct parts and accessories your Camaro had when new. Author Jason Scott is an expert on this marque. This guide will help enthusiasts authentically restore their second-generation Camaro.

After stumbling out of the gate with a late-model-year release, the second-generation Camaro outsold its predecessor two to one. With the prices of first-generation Camaros escalating rapidly, the second-generation cars have become very popular. More important, little literature can be found in the market to help owners of second-generation Camaros correctly identify parts and components for their cars. This benchmark book will be a must-have for 1970-1/2 - 1981 Camaro owners wanting to correctly bring their car back to original specification.

is highly regarded as one of the must-have reference books for first-generation Camaro owners, and he has numerous other books to his credit. In his spare time, he's typically wrenching on one of his fleet of 1960s Chevys.
