While the first-generation Chevy Camaros and Pontiac Firebirds are
iconic cars that command high sale prices in restored and unmodified
form, the second-generation Camaros and Firebirds are much more
affordable. These Camaros often sell for only a few thousand dollars,
and as a relative bargain compared to the early cars, many owners use
these cars as a blank canvas to build an all-out performance car. Not
only are the second-generation cars great platforms for modification,
owners don't have to feel guilty about heavily modifying an extremely
rare or valuable collector car that the first-generation cars represent.
Several million Camaros and Firebirds were built from 1970-1981.
Many of these were sparsely equipped cars with six-cylinder or small
V-8 engines and are perfect candidates for a full pro-touring treatment.
There is a huge and growing amount of aftermarket support for these
cars, with engine, drivetrain, brake, steering, and suspension parts
being offered. Many owners are installing multi-link or Air Ride
suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, quicker steering gears, stroker or
late-model engines, modern overdrive transmissions, and other
cutting-edge performance parts.
Like all editions in the
Performance Projects series, this book covers the wide range of
modifications, from borderline basic to in-depth and complex. Included
modifications are supercharger installs, head swaps, ignition and
carburetor mods, brake upgrades, transmission, differential and
driveline upgrades, engine bolt-ons, multi-link rear suspensions, and
more. This book is an essential tool for the second-gen enthusiast
looking to modify their car.
