Me thinks the final product, a bit more civilized, would have made an awesome production Camaro.

Unfortunately the Camaros and the Firebirds were not that popular compared to the Mustangs of that era. As a Diehard GM fan this I have to admit as interest fell through and the Camaro/Firebird production ended in 2002.

I have a 2002 Camaro SS Convertible in black.  My ex-wife had a 1971 Camaro and was a fine car but a stocker.  But in regards to this car - unless you get some heavy backers like in the days of Yenco and Smokey Yunick

as well as GM being interested..I think its dead as far as production. Wish it were so but the cards reads otherwise. Not only thet GM is not like it used to be with cash to burn like yesteryear.

GM had a no racing rule in those days so there was never any official GM support of the racers. I have always been a Ford fan and in the modern iteration I think they stayed more true to the spirit of the original than Chevy did with the modern Camaro.

1970 Boss 302 at the Monterey Historic races. Turn the volume up!

Consider, though, that Ford never took the Mustang out of production, while GM did so with the Camaro.  The Corvette, on the other hand, IMO is still very true to its original spirit (the mid-engined concept version notwithstanding).

I disagree on the Vette. Now not withstanding the performance packages it is more like the Thunderbird which very quickly became a sports luxury cruiser.
