The Impala SS (Super Sport) was introduced as an option in 1960 as an appearance/performance package. It was soon limited to hardtop and convertible coupe models. From 1964 through 1967 (Impala’s third and fourth generations), the Super Sport was a separate model, with its own VIN prefix: for instance, in 1965-67 cars 166/68 was the prefix for a V8-equipped Impala SS.

From 1962 to 1964, Super Sports came with engine-turned aluminum trim which, in 1965, was replaced by a “blackout” trim strip that ran below the tail lights.

From its debut in 1958, the Chevrolet Impala was distinguished from other models by its symmetrical triple tail lights. By the late 1960’s, classic muscle or “big block” cars focused on smaller models. The last model year for the Chevrolet Impala Super Sport series was 1969.

The F-150 started in 1975 as a truck model between the F-100 and F-250 (there was also the F-350). By 1976 it quickly became America’s favorite truck. In towns across America even today, Ford trucks from the 1950s era still work alongside today’s newest models. 

In 1983, F-100 production ended. In addition to work loads, the F-150 offered an additional new focus on lifestyle and comfort. Starting in the 1980s, Ford truck customers could select custom paint packages and, for the first time, the blue-oval Ford emblem was affixed on the front grille.

The Ford Expedition was the first full-size Ford SUV sold with a four-door body introduced for the 1997 model year as the successor of the Ford Bronco. The Bronco was introduced in 1966 and discontinued after five generations in 1996 (a sixth generation of the Bronco was introduced in 2021). Since 1996, the Ford Expedition, which is sold in regular and extended lengths, has shared some body parts and mechanical components with the Ford F-150, the car market’s favorite truck. Like the F-150, the Ford Expedition is known as being one of the longest-lasting vehicles on the road with many vehicles with over 200,000 miles on the odometer.

1979-1981 Chevrolet Camaro, 5/2023 7.72 mb 66%. The name Z/28 was introduced by General Motors in December 1966. In 1967 to 1969, Chevrolet continued to improve the car’s list of engine and performance options. The year 1970 introduced Gen II in a new Camaro design. The car was redesigned again in 1982 marking Gen III. There have been more redesigns over the decades and Chevrolet has announced that Camaro production will end in 2024 – and the Z/28s with it.

It’s said that among debates about classic muscle cars, none gets more hot than the Chevrolet Camaro versus the Ford Mustang. With the exception of the 6.6-liter Trans Am, the Z/28 represents the best Detroit had to offer in the early 1980s, and an excellent entry point. A great car with its own ups and downs as its model developments moved ahead, the Camaro Z/28 at the outset was known for its good looks and sleek, crisp styling. It hugged the road and moved fast with superb handling. By 1980, the standard wheel cover was matched by a rear deck spoiler and hood and deck stripes and, soon, a front spoiler to reduce drag. The 1980 models were the last that offered the quintessential muscle car power-train combination-a 350-cu.in. V-8 with four-speed transmission. The loaded Z in 1981 would cost around $12,000 (or $40,000 in 2023 dollars). The Z/28 was 197.6 inches long and rode on a 108-inch wheelbase. It stood at a height of 49.2 inches and was 74.5 inches wide. The body was all steel.

In 1980 the five interior colors included oyster, black, blue, carmine and tan. In 1981 the five interior colors changed to silver, black, blue, camel and red. In 1980, to save gas during the gas crisis, the car’s previous 130-mph speedometer was replaced with an 85-mph speedometer,
