Early ’70s was a heady time for GM’s performance car before power disappeared.
It was a time when disco was sweeping the land and General Motors was rocking to a new beat with the introduction of its second-generation “pony” car.
During the early part of the 1970s, performance cars would be hot, although per-haps not as fast or quick as they were at the peak of the musclecar era in 1970. By the mid-1970s, speed and horsepower would be fond memories.
The second-generation Camaro made its debut early in 1970 (production problems delayed introduction from fall of 1969) with much acclaim from the automotive press. It had a buff new body and an all-new high-performance 1970 1/2 (remember, it was late) Z/28 package.
