The new book, Camaro A Legend Reborn, was just published in early 2009 by Motorbooks. The author is Larry Edsall. Although he contributed some of the photos used in the book most are from the records of GM.
This book is an insider’s perspective of the historical record on how the new 2010 Camaro came to be.
Camaro A Legend Reborn contains numerous photos and stories about the design process and the prototypes that were built. There are first hand accounts of testing in Australia, Germany and in California.
Why isn’t the Camaro a full retro design like the Mustang and Challenger? What were some of the alternative design solutions? What were some of the early design sketches? Was the 1969 Camaro really that important in the design of the 2010 Camaro? Who were the Twelve Disciples and why were there fifteen? This book answers these and many more questions about the new Camaro.
As you read Camaro A Legend Reborn you will see a glimpse of what the new GM might have been and the cars it can produce. This book is not only a look at how a Legend is Reborn from its beginning as a colorful sketch on paper to the factory assembly line production of the first cars; it is a hint of what GM might have been or what it might still become.
I hope it survives, right now we need a new “Rocky Balboa“.
