Post Second Generation, 1970-1981
Second-gen Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird.The second generation F-Body cars were actually released as '1970 1/2' cars, due to extensive delays in the design and production of the new body style. Both cars grew considerably, with fairly drastic changes in styling to match each brand's updated styling across the lineup. Both cars also received engine options in the 7.4 L range in the earlier years of the second generation - 454 cu in for Chevrolet, and 455 cu in for Pontiac. However, both of these engines would be discontinued as emissions and fuel-economy restrictions made their production costs prohibitive (not to mention that the 454 never even made it into an actual production vehicle). Performance continued to decline through 1981, as power levels dropped and weight increased.
