1st Generation Camaro Outdoor Billboards (1966-1969)
« on: February 05, 2019, 05:09:35 PM »
While looking for vintage Camaro pictures I stumbled across the Duke University Libraries Digital Collections web site.  They have a collection known as the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) Archives, 1885-1990s, and out of a total of more than 16,000 images, this collection has over 250 images of Chevrolet outdoor advertising.  I was able to find a few cool photos showing how the first generation Camaro was advertised on outdoor billboards when they were new.  I thought I would add these to the ones I had already found and create this thread.  Enjoy!

I'm not sure that this was a real billboard. After looking at it for a while it looks like a doctored photo????  You be the judge.
