Feature car of the month: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro
The 1960s have been defined by many things that became part of the American landscape.
But as far as the automotive side of things is concerned, the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro commands a big part of the automotive history of the latter part of the 1960s.
The version owned by Loganville's Daryl Smith, which also took home an award at last year's Summit Racing Equipment Atlanta Motorama presented by RacingJunk.com, will again be part of the show this year!
The Camaro was already a well-known brand entering 1969, but that year's version of it sustained and built on the fame of the model. The 1969 Camaro retained the drivetrain and major mechanical components from the previous year, but the eye-catching change was on the car's exterior. Aside from the hood and trunk lid, the '69 Camaro came with a new sheet metal design, giving it a sportier look.
The new appearance even made its way to the front of the car with the 'V' design on the grille.
Add in the rear quarter panels and valence panels, the the 1969 Camaro had a lower to the ground and more aggressive appearance.
The Camaro will be just one of a countless number of cars on full display April 22-23 at the Summit Racing Equipment Atlanta Motorama presented by RacingJunk.com. Mark your calendars now to be part of Georgia's Motoring Festival!
