1988 Chevrolet Camaro

The 1988 Camaro falls right smack in the middle of the Third Generation of Camaros, and-as befitting its birth order-blends right in.  Nothing too exciting happened with the '88.  

The available engines were a 5.0L V8, 5.7L V8, and 2.8L V6.  All had great pep and relatively poor mileage to match.  The Berlinetta continued to be offered along with the standard and IROC models.
