1967 Camaro SS

“A small, vicious animal that eats mustangs.” This was how Chevy executives defined “Camaro” at a pre-press conference in 1966. The 1967 Camaro was Chevrolet’s entry into the “pony car” category that for two years had been dominated by the Ford Mustang—which, interestingly, had been Ford’s response to Chevy’s 1961 rear-engine, sporty and compact Corvair Monza. With the Camaro’s lighter unibody design, powerful (front engine-rear wheel drive) V-8 , with room for 4 people; Chevy was ready to compete.

1965 Mustang Fastback GT

Ford began production of the Mustang five months before the normal start of the 1965 production year explaining why earliest versions are often referred to as 1964 1/2 models. Introduced to the public on 17 April 1964, Ford expected to sale 100,000 cars in the production year...they sold that many in three months. Championed by Lee Iococca himself and boasting a record development time of only 18 months, the Ford Mustang single-handedly spearheaded the "Pony Car" revolution. On 17 August 1964 Ford began production on the iconic Fastback version and offered a performance 289 cubic inch, 4-barrel V-8 turning 271 hp. And the rest is history.

1970 Chevelle SS 396

1970 was a watershed year in the history of the American muscle car. Most would agree that the muscle era hit its apogee in 1970, when too much performance was not enough and user friendliness was shoved aside by an antisocial attitude; vying for the top of the pops was Chevrolet's Chevelle SS. The SS 396 carried Chevy's intermediate performance banner, wrapping a lean, butch exterior around serious big-block horsepower and igniting a reverence that burns strong more than 30 years later. With its ample and inexpensive parts supply, ease of restoration and classic all-American appeal, the 1970 Chevelle SS 396 is the muscle car that nearly everyone with gasoline in their veins wants in their garage.

1955 Chevy Bel Air

1955 Chevy Bel Air

The 1955 Chevy Bel Air almost single-handedly changed America’s relationship with automobiles. Seemingly overnight, Chevrolet shed its conservative, stuffy public perception by revealing the clean, youthful lines of the Bel Air. Sleek design elements from WWII aircraft and European sports cars replaced the puffy, rounded car bodies that typified the automobiles of the early 1950s. Additionally, the Bel Air offered its cutting-edge design and a V8 engine at an economical price. In 1955, the base model of this iconic car line (the “one-fifty”) was available in 5 body styles, with 14 solid body colors, or—as was popular at the time—23 two-tone color combinations, for about $2,200.

1957 Chevrolet 150 - 4 Door

The 1957 Chevrolet is an American icon and one of the most popular cars to ever come down an assembly line. When one thinks of Americana, this is the car that comes to mind. Even people not remotely interested in cars other than to get them from place to place can identify with a 1957 Chevy. They know somebody who had one, or they've seen them at car shows, rotting in fields or a low-mileage original sitting in Grandpa's garage. That's because more than 1.5 million were built, in 19 bodystyles and 460 model/color combinations.
