Seven Days of Dream Car Garages: Day Four by Stephen Elmer

1. 1969 Camaro Z28

It may not have the best handling on the list, or be the most powerful, but I would say that the 1969 Camaro Z28/RS has the most presence of the bunch.

In 1969 the Camaro Z28/RS got some improvements, including standard front disc brakes, the option of four-wheel disks, and a cowl-induction hood. Under the hood is a 302 V8 rated at 290 hp (many say it is under rated), along with a 850-cfm four-barrel carburetor. Chambered exhaust pipes were an option, and offered some of the least restrictive Chevy exhausts ever.

The added Rally Sport package brought some new good looks to the car as well, adding simulated rear fender louvers, front and rear wheel opening moldings and black body sills. It also got RS emblems on the grille, steering wheel and rear panel, and Rally Sport front fender nameplates to name a few of the changes.

This is a car that demands attention with its slick style, offering up the best looks in the American Muscle field. Which is why it would fit nicely in my dream car garage.
