Since the 1960s, this sleek, well-designed little sports coupe has offered a style that has made car enthusiasts swoon. While the car's performance has varied over the years, it has remained a leader in both speed and handling.
When looking for a used car that sports an athletic design and above average power, the Chevrolet Camaro offers some of the best value on the market. Available in either a coupe design or convertible top, there are number of quality used Camaros available.
Chevrolet introduced the Camaro in 1967 to compete with the Ford Mustang. Like many of the early pony cars, the first generation Camaro was a welcome change to the family styled sedans that crowded the marketplace. In 1970, Chevrolet offered a dramatic redesign of the Camaro. Modeled after the Ferrari, the second generation was bigger, heavier and slower than its original version. The third generation Camaro, launched in 1982, saw a return to a more athletic, smaller frame. This generation also offered factory fuel injection, four-speed automatic transmission, and five-speed manual transmission. 1999 marked the fourth generation Camaro, with its V8 powered rear-drive chassis, offered a 300-horsepower engine capable of delivering a 13 second quarter mile. In 2002, Chevrolet stopped production on the Camaro for eight years but reintroduced the sports car in 2010. The new model car now featured retro styling similar to that of the original 1960s Camaro. It was also offered as either a coupe or convertible.
