256  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Was the 1967 camaro a disappointment? on: November 14, 2005, 12:41:13 AM
  After reading the Road Research Report on the 67 Camaro SS350 in my Nov. 1966 Car and Driver magazine I have to wonder if people, in 1966, saw the Camaro as a major disappointment. Seems C&D had not much good to say about the car as they used the first three paragraphs to absolutly trash Chevrolet and the Camaro. Apparently, nothing on the test car could please them. From the "mildly tuned" 350, to the Corvair derived styling, to the french or spanish meaning of the name Camaro, the car just could not meet their expectations. "Chevrolet's Camaro does not offer the extremes of performance that the Mustang does."C&D says.- When compared to the 390 GT and no mention of the following SS396 or Z28.
  For those of you who were potential buyers and/or enthusiats at the time (1966,67) did you feel the same? I was not around until 7 years later so by the time I had an opinion, the cars were already classics (old). I've owned and driven both a 66 Mustang FB and several Camaros but my judgement had already been skewed by newer, better handling, and better built cars.
 Thanks for any input.
