1981 Chevrolet Camaro

Marking the last year of the second-generation Camaros, the 1981 model was much the same as the previous years. The RS model was dropped and wouldn’t be seen again until 1989. Also, a new engine control computer was included in all models. Production dropped once again due to aged styling, oil crises, and declining economy. The Z/28’s performance characteristics remained unchanged. The Berlinetta was the only model to increase in production for 1981.
