Hey I grew up in the Burg suburbs, Franklin Park. Any of you guys cruise McKnight Road in the 80s?
im in the south hills my whole life, cruised South Park in the 80s. Still live there now.
71 RS I missed out on several years ago.
That is most interesting. No gauges "automatically" included in the RS package.
RS is strictly an appearance package - no performance attributes at all. Performance and gauges tend to go hand in hand (witness included gauges with RPOZ28 in the early 2nd gens...strangely though, gauges were optional with 1st gen Z/28)
OMG Yes..... I pretty much seem to get that at every car show… I take the opportunity to educate the unknowing......Some look at me like they’re not sure that I think I know what I’m talking about… And others just seem surprised.....
And in fairness, GM did "unofficially" market the later '69 Camaros as 1970 and the 1970s were very commonly referred to as "70 1/2" back in the day. I don't know if there's a way to find out if the RS option was a bit later entry but if it was, it would at least add to the "rumour" of the "history" of the "70.5 Camaros".
i was in grade 11 that year and any "car guy kid" of the day anxiously awaited the second generation Camaros.
O'Ratty's insists my '68 Chevy II Nova SS did not come with a 350.
Late post, My 78 Z/28 new had everything I wanted except a console. I thought if you ordered a 4 speed it came with a console. Wrong ! Got it with a lever sticking out of the floor, no console.
How were they received? My first car was a 80 RS back in 92. As long as I can remember the 60's have been the most desired. I obviously have an attachment to 2nd gen but would still say 1st gen although the 70-73 split front cars really do it for me. Just curious what people generally thought of the 2nd gens once they finally came out. Of course there wasn't social media back then to collectively cry together and form support groups.
