1981 Chevrolet Camaro Overview

The 1981 Chevrolet Camaro marked the end of the second generation of the pony car (thank goodness, say many, disappointed with the lack of power throughout the decade). Only three trims were offered, limited to the base model, Berlinetta, and Z28. The Rally Sport disappeared once again. The RS, truly the Mr. Roper of the family, seemed to like to drop in, make a few folks smile, then depart, leaving people wondering when it would return again.

The 1981 Camaro different from its second generation counterparts, as it had a computer which made the V8 street-legal for all 50 states (we're looking at you, California). The V6 remained without this equalizer, leaving the base engine a 229-ci V6 rated at 110 horsepower for everywhere but California, where a 231-ci similarly rated vehicle was available.
