People(kids) like that make the rest of us teenagers look bad. We're not all like that, I hope you all realize.

I wish more teens were interested in 1st gens. My small circle of friends has been involved with them for 25+ years; we're all 50 or so. Something we discuss on occasion is that generations succeding us don't seem to care about them or cars in general. Can't blame you; in the '60s-'70s gas and cars were cheap and no one heard of emissions testing.
Much tougher to be a gearhead these days.

More power to you; someone will have to pick up where we leave off.

way to go DjD! i'm behind ya all the way, if you did not enforce order, we would have chaos, and w/ chaos this could turn into one ugly site. so in the words of Smokey "only you can prevent' ugliness. keep up the excellent work, and keep the site clean. kids gotta realize that there are places and times to let off steam.

Re: Did any one ever hear of a 66 camaro?

Actually, I have. I own a 67 RS & thought it was the first year made. I guess it depends on how you look at it. The reason I say that is that I was watching a major auto auction on Tv, I think it was Barrett Jackson & they had some Camaros they kept referring to as 66s.

I don't know what the criteria is for a 66.

Re: Did any one ever hear of a 66 camaro?

This thread is 9 years old........THere was no 66 model year so dmv should list it as a 67 but anything is possible......the manufacturing and some build dates of the 67 model are dated in 66 but that does not make for a 66 or a 66 1/2 Camaro.........jm2c

Re: Did any one ever hear of a 66 camaro?

this is the oldest question about Camaros, was there a 66? No one is talking about the first one and when it was first driven. I have read every book on the Camaro and no clue. Was there a 66?

Re: Did any one ever hear of a 66 camaro?

It went on the designing boards in 1965 in response to the success of the sheet metal hung on Ford's old Falcon platform renamed the Rustang (or something like that). But it didn't get into production until 1967 despite a lot of pressure from above to get a "pony car" in the sales rooms.

If GM 's top brass had looked at what a fella by the name of William Tyler Jenkins was doing in Super Stock with a 1966 Chevy II packing an L-79 327 they could have gotten some of the bugs out of the Camaro (and the new rushed into production 1968 Nova that shares about seventy percent of the Camaro's parts) before placing it in production.

Just my two cents worth on the subject. The first production Camaro was made in 1967, Chevrolet tested a fleet of over a hundred evaluation models in 1966 but they were all scrapped. If your state calls it a 1966 Camaro, there isn't much that any one else can do, it is a legal issue, but the rest of the world considers it to be a 1967 Camaro, despite what the title says.

Wow, thread revived again.

Anywho, SOME states register as year of make, others as when bought.

BUT....we all agree to know it as 67 being the first year.
