Here are the advertisements featuring 1968 Camaros that appeared in 1968 High School yearbooks. 

"Jaybird" has been researching these and compiling them at his blog for several years.  See these and all other makes and models here: https://annualmobiles.blogspot.com/

Lots of good details!
The first picture has mags, but flat hood so a 327 car (or possibly L6).
The third picture is in the showroom, but the wheelwells are dirty.

Guys, I noticed the dirty wheel wells and tires too.  I wonder if they had a muddy parking lot out back or something.  Strange that this was not cleaned off before bringing it into the showroom.

A new car with New York State Plates, that seems odd unless they required dealers back then to have them on the car for test drives? Also most of these cars have wheel covers. Dealers didn't want to pay up for ralleys?
