1968

Sports Illustrated posts its back issues, http://www.si.com/. Go to SI Vault. I like to look through old magazines and read the car ads. This one is from the September 30, 1968, Mexico City Olympics issue.

Camaro's clean lines and muscle power made it a classic. This ad announces the 1969 model. Dig the groovy headlight covers.

From the ad...

"Camaro, 'The Hugger.' Look at how it all hangs together. No tacky gingerbread anywhere. The interiors are also more of a delight. The ride is quieter and the car feels more solid than ever before."

Here's the link:

Then click on "view this issue." Go to page 83.
