Early Camaro design image

My dad emailed this image to me earlier today, I've seen plenty of pictures from this era, but not sure if I've seen this one before

Thats a cool pic !!

Looks like a clay model ready for a presentation

The 5th gen equivalent would be this (which is also a clay model dressed up for presentation):



Its amazing how real clay models can look
Only difference is the clay model of the 5th gen was all milled by a machine using CAD data but the 60's model was done without a single computer!

The thinner front grill section does change the appearance dramatically.

It is still cool to see these type of pics of the Camaros. Thanks for posting this one. I'm glad someone still had access to it.
