Overview

When Chevrolet entered the pony market in 1967, its Camaro looked like a winner—not just for the muscle car era but for all time. And it was the iconic Camaro, battling Ford’s Mustang for dominance, that once again jumpstarted flagging American performance in the 1980s. Now, after another lull and more missed chances, Chevrolet comes roaring back onto the muscle car scene with a Camaro for a new generation—a Camaro destined to be the next classic.

Camaro: A Legend Reborn chronicles the rebirth of this legendary car. With drawings and photographs of prototypes and pre-productions vehicles, and in interviews with engineers, designers, and key executives, the book follows each step of the process that led to Camaro’s triumphant return. And finally, jaw-dropping photographs of the new car at play on the street and on the track announce the arrival of the ultimate Camaro in no uncertain terms.

This coffee table book is a detailed journey through the Camaro years. The pictures are beautiful and the text clearly written. If you have a Camaro parked in your garage or just love this amazing Chevy, this book is for you!

After just purchasing the 2010 Camaro SS, I learned from a business associate of this work on the development of the new Chevrolet Camaro, and ordered the book. It is filled with details on the design and construction of the vehicle, which literally took place in three different countries, and how the car went from a Detroit Auto Show overwhelming expense, to the movies in Transformer, to the eventual development and production. Any car enthusiast would appreciate this book, but any 2010 Camaro owner would LOVE it! I would highly recommend the book!
