Camaro & Firebird - GM's Power Twins
GM's 1-2 Punch The argument will never have a winner. Which car was cooler, the Chevrolet Camaro, or the Pontiac Firebird? The two legendary GM F-bodies had so much in common - including the year they were born - that they would be forever joined at the hip. They were wildly popular with the car buying public and came in so many varieties that almost any driver could find happiness with a Camaro or Firebird. Alas, all good things usually come to an end, and GM pulled the plug on the two legendary nameplates in 2002 after 35 great years. After Pontiac's demise, the Firebird and Trans Am may be gone for good - certainly as "Poncho" offspring - but thankfully, the Camaro is back by popular demand. In Camaro and Firebird: GM's Power Twins, muscle car expert John Gunnell traces the year-by-year development of both legendary cars. With more than 225 color photos and fact-laden yearly bios, Gunnell packs 38 model years into one easy-to-use resource.
