I'm new to this

Hi there!

I'm new to the site. I am trying to learn all I can about Camaros, so hopefully in a couple years I can purchase on confidently! Any tips or suggestions or things I can read to learn would be very helpful!

Re: I'm new to this

just the best places to learn about the different models and what options came with the different packages.

how to spot a clone/tribute car.... from what ive seen so far a clone/tribute is basically a lower model car that someone has restored to the specs of say a SS or a Z28 right?

A couple years ago my grandfather gave me the Standard Catalog of Camaro (1967-2002), is that book good to use?
