Book Review - Camaro: A Legend Reborn

Camaro: A Legend Reborn by Larry Edsall

by Larry Edsall

Seven years in the making, an American icon has been reborn. From the time the 35th anniversary edition rolled off the assembly line in 2002 to its fifth-generation 2010 production debut, the Camaro—this new Camaro—has been a growing twinkle in the eyes of American car enthusiasts eager for the continuation of the current muscle car revitalization trend.

With the production version of the 2006 Camaro concept finally here, Larry Edsall brings to the table a book that chronicles Chevrolet’s legendary pony car from its original inception in 1967 to its funeral and on through to its exciting rebirth. The book is filled with in-depth interviews of GM engineers, designers and executives. Accompanied by an extensive series of previously unpublished photographs, illustrations and sketches, this is a firsthand account that every Camaro enthusiast should own and enjoy.
