Chevrolet was Number One in the sales race. If you needed a car, chances are Chevrolet made it. However, in 1964 there arose a problem.
Some guy at Ford came up with a car called the Mustang, maybe youve heard of it? But dont worry, Chevrolet had a solution called the Camaro. In racing, where you are on lap one, isnt nearly as important as your position when the checkered flag falls. By 1981, Camaro was so far in front of Mustang, Henry needed binoculars to see the Z28s taillights! Camaro was part of the speed shop scene, modified by the most famous names of the muscle car era.
In racing, Chevrolets pony left no stone unturned, inside and outside America. With the fuel crisis, insurance, and inflation, America sought a new kind of coupe. The Bowtie boys even outsold Mustang, with that Z28 having the upper hand in the Chevrolet versus Ford rivalry.
Chevrolets dedicated coupe even outfoxed Fords sedan based Mustang. If the Corvette is the King of American Sportscars, then The Hugger must be the Prince of Ponies!
