The reinvigorated after the economical crisis US car industry has born some kind of remarkable cars during its history. The made by GM Chevrolet Camaro SS is with good reason also represented in this category. Comparisons with the legendary Ford Mustang are not at all far-fetched, they are even a matter of intention.

The Yenko Super Camaro was a modified Chevrolet Camaro prepared by Yenko Chevrolet, Canonsburg, PA., under the command of Don Yenko from 1967 through 1969 and we, Musclevehicles.com present it to you. Don, a renowned racer and the owner of Yenko Chevrolet, decided the new for ’67 Camaro needed a bit more oomph. This was because a General Motors corporate edict prevented it from carrying an engine larger than 400 CID V8; this put the Camaro at a serious disadvantage to the Ford Mustang, Plymouth Barracuda and the Dodge Dart since they had no such a limit.
Don Yenko, however, knew there was a market for an ultra-powerful Camaro and found ways around the GM limit. To accomplish this task he transplanted the L-72 427 big block engine form the Corvette into the Camaro, thus the Yenko SC or Super Camaro was born! Seeing how successful Don’s creation was, other dealers across the Country also did similar swaps, but the Yenko is widely considered the most collectible of the bunch. Click on Read more!

Check out this awesome brand new 2012 Chevrolet Camaro SLP Panther Edition!! This is a limited production car that is built as a super charged throw back to the original Camaro. Before the Camaro was ever deemed the Camaro it was referred to as project Panther. Early plans were for the car to be named The Panther. There were several cars produced early under the name panther.
There are only 2 known to exist today. The cars had a black and gold color scheme as you also see here on this car. This car has build number 9 on the dash. Meaning it is only the 9th car like this produced. This car produces a mind blowing 600 hp and has been completely modified with engine, suspension, exhaust, and interior and exterior modifications to create The Panther. What’s sure is you can impress even the harshest perfomance enthusiast with such extremely rare and collector car like the featured 2012 Chevrolet Camaro Panther Edition. Read more!
We’ve featured some pretty amazing pro-touring early Camaros lately here at Muscle Cars Blog, but when you start giving cars names, you know they’re getting serious. Built by the artists at GelPro Rod & Muscle, his 1969 Camaro is known as “The Punisher” and given the performance credentials and stunning execution, it’s entirely appropriate (yes, comic book fans, we know The Punisher drove a GTO, not a Camaro, so save your E-mails; it’s just a name). Pro-touring is all about integrating modern performance equipment with vintage sheetmetal, and this pro-built car delivers on every level-it has already been voted the runner-up in the 2009 GoodGuys Muscle Car of the Year competition. Power comes from a modified LS2 V8, the suspension is heavily upgraded, and it spins a modern 5-speed transmission, not to mention all the creature comforts that are part of the deal. If ever there was a car that has legitimately earned its name, it’s this one-it will definitely punish competitors on the street as well as the show field. Click on read more for fantastic photos!

How do you make a first generation Camaro even better? Easy. Add power and make it handle like a slot car. The next candidate for our pro-touring Camaro Hall of Fame is this wild 1969 Camaro convertible. Born with a coat of Fathom Green and a lot less engine, the restoration process was especially good to this car. It now features big-block power, a trick suspension and an eye-popping color that perfectly complements its asphalt-eating demeanor. If you liked the last few pro-touring first-gens but prefer yours topless, take a closer look at this at this ground-pounding 1969 Chevrolet Camaro convertible.
While most F-body enthusiasts have a particular year they favor, you would be hard-pressed to find one that doesn’t like the 1969 design. While the basic side profile remained the same from 1968, all sheet metal (with the exception of the hood and decklid) was reworked for a lower, wider and generally more aggressive look. When straightening out the body work on this Camaro, perfection was clearly the goal. Every corner is sharp, every line is crisp and panel fitment is far superior to assembly line work. Covering that laser straight body is an attractive shade of yellow that does a great job of accenting the cars line while turning of plenty of heads in the process. Accenting that yellow paint are two matte black stripes that further the aggressive demeanor of this F-body. All paint work is high-quality with absolutely no noticeable flaws from any angle.
