1980 Chevrolet Camaro

After a record-setting 1979, the 1980 Chevrolet Camaro would succumb to an oncoming recession and continuing fuel crisis. Only 152,005 Camaros were sold, with a larger percentage (over a third at 51,104) opting for the more fuel-efficient V6.

The base engine was a 229-ci V6 rated at 115 horsepower, while the California version was a 231-ci rated at 110 horsepower. The Z28 brought its buyers the power they sought: a 350-ci V8 rated at 190 horsepower. It was also given a new look, with an intimidating grill sporting the Z28 emblem.
