Auto Transport Quotes: Chevrolet Camaro
Though it’s not Chevy’s oldest brand name, the Chevrolet Camaro is a popular one – in fact, it is one of the most popular Chevy vehicles of all time. The Camaro was first introduced in 1966 for the 1967 model year and was conceived of to help Chevrolet compete with the ever-popular Ford Mustang, which was dominating sales at the dealerships at the time. General Motors took their time designing the Camaro, though once it was released it saw only four generations in over forty years. The Camaro suffered from lagging sales and dwindling interest during the early 21st century, and as such it was dropped from Chevy’s lineup in 2002. In 2009 the Camaro was reintroduced to strong sales, and you can learn more about the Camaro here.
The first generation Camaro was introduced in 1966 and came with a number of different options and features including six different engine configurations. The Camaro’s engine bay was built specifically to accommodate a number of different engines, giving anyone peeking under the hood (or fixing something under the hood) a lot of different ways to go about powering their Camaro. The first generation only lasted two years before the redesign, though the first generation’s look would be what Chevy based the new fifth-generation’s look on in 2009. Subsequent generations saw different changes to the Camaro, with the second generation lasting through the 1970’s and the third generation lasting through the 1980’s, and the fourth generation lasting the 1990’s – each generation saw different designs for the Camaro and different configurations.
At the end of the day transporting a Chevrolet Camaro isn’t the hardest thing in the world, though you’ll find that it’ll be cheaper for auto transporters to ship newer Camaros than the older ones. This is mainly because of weight – as new building materials emerged in the 1980’s and 1990’s, older solid-steel framed cars (like the 60’s and 70’s Camaro) became obsolete and newer vehicles were faster, lighter and safer. Today, shipping any Camaro will run the cost of a car – just expect the older ones to be a bit more expensive due to the additional weight of the body and the chassis, but it won’t push your Camaro into SUV or pickup truck territory.
