Did the first gens have any towing package?

Has anyone ever put a hitch on one?

If not and you fab one onto a camaro, how much could you tow with it.

Im thinking like a small trailer for motorcyle or jetski?

Many, many years ago I used to pull a 16ft. boat with a six banger Maverick. I'm sure a hitch can be fabed for a Camaro. May have to beef up the rear suspension.

I have seen a hitch before on a Camaro. It was "U" shaped with the tops of the U bolted to the bumper. There was an added support bolted somewhere under the car.

I have a hitch that I took off my car when I bought it. If you are interested in it let me know.

Gawd...someone welded a hitch on my car. Welded it to the tail pan in fact. I guess I'm lucky that the tail pan had rust and needed replacing anyway. Going to have to get a cutting torch to get the rest. Are you sure you want to put a hitch on a camaro?

Has anyone ever fabricated a bracket to tow a first gen behind a motorhome?

i cringe everytime i see a car being pulled behind an rv.. can't be good for the poor transmission. if a car needs to be pulled, get a trailer.
