1970 Chevrolet Camaro
 

1970 Chevrolet Camaro

The start of production of the all new 1970 Camaro model was delayed until January 5, 1970. As a result, the second generation F-cars were not introduced to the public until February 26, 1970. However, a gorgeous design inspired by european sports cars gave the new Camaro immediate appeal. The sleak long hood, short deck fastback body was longer, lower, and wider than the first generation Camaro.
