The two F-Body cars are similar in design; however, the engine selection options were quite different. For example, in the mid 1970s the Firebird was offered with Chevy engines as an economical option. The powerful Pontiac 400 engine was offered in the Trans Am. In the 1970s, due to the "Gas Crisis", more than one million Camaro and Firebirds were sold with six cylinders. Many of the Camaros and Firebirds did come equipped with smog-equipped 305s and 350s. When compared to the first generation Camaros and Firebirds, its easy to understand why the second generation Camaros and Firebirds have lower collector values. That said, the second generation Camaro and Firebirds sold toward the end of the muscle car era are some of the most valuable collector cars on the market.

The detailed instructions and associated diagrams in this guide will help you speed through your performance project in an efficient and cost effective manner. From performance engines to the interior, this guide includes everything you need to know to transform your Camaro or Firebird into a "dream" that will turn heads for years to come. Maybe you have a mint condition Camaro or Firebird that just isnít fast or beefy enough for you... If so, this guide will show you how to upgrade your ride to an extremely powerful and desirable muscle car.
