In 2002 the last of a dying breed was rolled off the production lines. An image that had withstood everything from an oil crisis to the 80s was removed, perhaps forever. Many fans of the Mustang liked to say that they won. That the original ponycar smashed the camaro finally but they're wrong. It was a simple marketing descision that ended the life of the Camaro. Production was ceased in order to keep fufilling the demands of Truck purists everywhere.

The car was first birthed in 93 with the hot model being the Z28 with the LT1 small block chevy. With about 275 hp (some believe to be an understatement) it was true to the Camaro's image. For the next few years little changed other than the HP being bumped up slowly and the return of the SS model. The big change came in 1998 with a new facelift (they lost the American Football player look) and most importantly a new engine. The LS1 was the latest and greatest of the Smallblock motors and was all aluminum. The powere hopped up to 320 hp and stayed basically there for the duration of the rest of the car's life.

That being said... is it cool?
