The Super Hugger!!

“Dubbed “Super Hugger”, the second-generation Camaro saw development without the rush of the first generation! And it benefited from a greater budget justified by the success of its forerunner. Although it was an all-new car, the basic mechanical layout of the new Camaro was familiar. They engineered it much like its predecessor with a unibody structure. The 2nd Generation Z28 Camaro utilized a front subframe. It sported A-arm and coil spring front suspension. And in the rear leaf springs for second generation were greatly refined in both performance and comfort.” That meant performance you could feel on the street and track!  Source: Camaro Wiki

They Learned!

“Extensive experience Chevrolet engineers had gained racing the first-generation led directly to advances in second-generation Camaro steering, braking, and balance. Although it began its run with a number of high-performance configurations, as the 1970s progressed, the Camaro grew less powerful! It like many production cars of the era could not stand against the pressures of tightening emissions regulations. And of course the artificially created fuel crisis put a scare into all. Major styling changes were made in 1974 and 1978. And 1981 was the final model year for the second-generation Camaro.”  Source:  Camaro Wiki

“The 1970 Camaro SS 396 had the 396 cu in (6.5 L) L78 rated at 350 hp. Starting in 1970, the big block V8s (nominally 396 cu in (6.5 L)) actually displaced 402 cu in (6.6 L). And yet Chevrolet chose to retain the 396 badges. Two 454 cu in (7.4 L) engines (the LS6 and LS7) were listed on early specification sheets. And those engines graced some sales brochures but never made it into production. Besides the base model, buyers could select the Rally Sport option with a distinctive nose and bumper!

The Super Sport package, and the Z-28 Special Performance Package priced out at US$572.95. – – – That was 70’s era Dollars mind you! – – –  The new high-performance LT-1 360 hp (268 kW) 380 lb·ft (520 N·m) of torque came from the 350 cu in (5.7 L) V8. The LT-1, an engine built from the ground up using premium parts and components performed better than the previous 302 cu in (4.9 L) V8s. Coupled with the 780 cfm Holley four-barrel the Z-28 ran the 3-speed Turbo Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission! It was as an option to the four-speed manual for the first time. The LT-1 engine in the 1970 Camaro Z-28 came from the Corvette.”  Source:  Camaro Wiki
