In 2002, Chevrolet fans around the world were watching how the last Camaros were rolling off the production lines. The last generation Camaro model was already ten years old, a little overweight, with too little rear seat room, difficult to see out of, with an interior featuring a lot of cheap plastics, and to top it all off, it was too expensive as well.
To counterbalance these undesirable features, the Camaro SS flaunted a potent Chevy LS1 V-8, mated to a six-speed transmission. Chevrolet also made a 35th anniversary Camaro SS, with a little too many large-sized logos all over. Back in its day, the 325 horsepower vehicle cost $30,000 (for an anniversary coupe), but now its value has dropped significantly.
