 Did you know the Camaro was touted as having the same conventional rear-drive, front-engine configuration as the Mustang and Chevy II Nova? In addition, the first-generation Camaro lasted until the 1969 model came out.

By 1969, the pony car wars were raging on the streets of America, or at least in the offices of the car makers as they discussed how to outdo the competition. This usually meant sportier styling and meatier performance, as drivers demanded more and more of each. In 1969, Barracuda was at the bottom of the heap, as far as sales numbers go, but was getting ready for a complete overhaul for the 1970 year model and introduction of the Challenger.
