There are literally hundreds of different supercars that we would all love to get our hands on. While many of us would drool and gape at a Ferrari or Lamborghini if ever we were to see it up close we know that it will always be beyond our reach. So instead of fantasizing about one car we take the next best thing.

If you can’t have a supercar then why not choose one of the many muscle cars that are at your disposal? While the Mustang was the muscle car to have people’s focus has turned to the Chevy Camaro. Lately we have been hearing people talking and boasting about the 2010 Camaro and how the look and design has been improved upon.

But do we ever stop to think about what the car looked like thirty years ago? In 1978 the Camaro was much different then we know it to be today. During that time Chevy had given it a brand new nose in order to replace the bumpers that many people could not stand to look at. Both the front and rear fascia were given a new color urethane and were designed so that they could meet the requirements for a 5 mph crash standard.

The rear taillights were given a new design and have three lenses and the fuel door that was set in the center. Chevy made it available to consumers in five models that included the; Rally Sport, Type-LT, Sport Coupe, Type-LT Rally Sport, and Z28.

On each of the models was a translucent T-top. The Z28 was considered to be the best model to have because it came available with a full disco body package, front fender vents, a fake hoodscoop, and an engine that gave it more power then before. Due to the increase in emission regulations that California was constantly setting forth Chevy has to offer different engines for California.

All of the models were a success to consumers all across that nation and it was able to outsell the Mustang II that year. Now that it is coming out of retirement Chevy hopes that the 2010 Camaro will have the same effect on people and will once again overtake the Mustang with its unique design and powerful engines.
