In 1968, General Motors has decided to leave the audience with 1968 Camaro Z28. It was still a race car bare knuckles. Air conditioning was not an option. Disc brakes were a mandatory option. Nor was it an automatic transmission. All suspension components have been strengthened and many other critical components of the train unit was built. This was the real thing. Not some badged up muscle car to pretend.

Finally, for those who not satisfied with the SS396, a Chevy dealership offers a more powerful Camaro and became a legend in the process. The SYC Camaro or "Super Yenko Camaro" was announced as the final. It is easy to see because people well into Yenko Sports in Canonsburg Pennsylvania tore 396ci big blocks out of around 100 Camaros and replaced it with a 427ci L72 Corvette engine producing at least 425hp. After the transfer of the engine, they have strengthened some other components, added a single hood and threw in a few badges for good measure. The result was a $ 3800 Camaro that could do 0-60 in under 4 seconds and the quarter mile in low 12 second range.

The 396 Super Sport package includes a single layer, double seats with four-square simulated air intakes, SS 396 emblems and a large number of performance upgrades. Of course the heart of the car was a 396ci big block. Several versions were offered and they all offered a very good performance. The performance of the straight line of SS396 was very similar to Z/28. Because the SS was much cheaper than the GM has sold about four for each Z/28 Z/28 Super Sports sold.

1968 Pony Car
in 1968, more manufacturers entered the pony car market. In attempting to gain rapidly growing market share in the segment, American Motors Javelin AMX introduced in 1968 and 1968. The AMX and Javelin were similar cars with the main difference was the exclusion of the back seat AMX. AMX was the only two places widely available in addition to the Corvette in 1968. Sister of the Camaro, Firebird 1968, remained virtually unchanged. Plymouth moved all in for his 1968 Barracuda. They released a 426 Hemi in the engine compartment. Seventy lucky owners got a pony car that was ridiculously powerful, and more than likely, ridiculously hard to keep on the road. Ford said the challenge of sales of the Camaro and horsepower Plymouth challenge form and adding the 427 Cobra 428 Cobra Jet engine to the lineup for the 1968 Mustang.

The 1969 Camaro was the last of the first generation Camaros. The body has been updated to make it seem "longer and lower." Many consider that the main inspiration for the 2010 Camaro reintroduced.
