With a powerful and relatively lightweight (compared to the 396 big block motors) small block powerplant--the ubiquitous 350 cubic inch engine--the 1970 Camaro Z28 debuted both a winning new body and a great motor. A total package that could be called the best-balanced Camaro yet assembled, the small block produced nearly as much as the 396 (360 horsepower) thanks to a high-flow carburetor and high 11:1 compression. Performance is fantastic, but handling is improved thanks to better weight distribution and better rubber. The early second generation cars are attractive, almost Ferrari-inspired, with a squared-off grille bisected by a chrome bumper, and quad round taillights placed under a large decklid spoiler out back. While the triumph of the new Z28 was clear on the street, for a variety of reasons the new model was less successful in Trans Am racing. However, that hasn’t hurt the value or desirability of these special first-year Camaros.
