Counting Down High Performance Camaros

Top-10-Camaro-Z28-10

We’ve all heard the jokes before. Muscle cars only drive in a straight line; they’re petrified of corners.

For many ground pounding monsters that may be true, but for a group of cars that are continuously mislabeled as “muscle cars,” that isn’t really the case. The cars I am referring to are “Pony Cars.” Pony cars sought to combine the power of a muscle car with the handling of a proper sports car in a compact, affordable package. Cars like the Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, AMC Javelin, Plymouth Barracuda and Chevrolet Camaro, came to define this class in the late 1960s.

Being that these cars were meant to be more than drag-strip terrors, an emphasis was put on chassis development and racetrack specials like the Shelby Mustang G.T. 350, Pontiac Trans Am, Plymouth ‘Cuda AAR and of course, the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 all came to be.

First arriving in 1967 as a homologation package for the competitive Trans Am racing series, the Z/28, sometimes spelt Z28 depending on the year, has been an on-again off-again Camaro designation ever since. For 2014, Chevrolet is once again reviving the storied name for a new Camaro trim package that promises to be the fastest Camaro ever. In celebration of this new beast, we now present the top 10 Camaro Z/28s of all time.
