The year is 1995. The federal government is shutting down over funding disputes to various programs and muscle cars are starting to find their mojo again. While the feds waited until January of 1996 to turn the lights back on, there was no waiting for the fourth-generation Chevrolet Camaro.
We’re back with a Vintage Ad Break where we grab some of our favorite old school commercials and open them up for discussion and reminiscing. This time, we’re focusing on the 1995 Chevrolet Camaro.
The ad we have today poses an important question: “why wait?” Some things have an unavoidable waiting period, but Chevrolet thought there’s no need to wait for a dream car like the Camaro.
Interestingly, the ad makes no mention of the SS or Z/28 but instead highlights two standard airbags, anti-lock brakes and its direct-injected V6 engine. In 1995, some Camaros would be equipped with the 3800 series V6, while other models still were fitted with the 3400 V6. By the end of 1995, however, the 3.4L V6 would be phased out.
As for other updates to the 1995 Camaro, it was the first year fourth-generation Camaros had the option of painted sidebars and mirrors. For Z/28s, door handles and rooftops could also be finished in the Camaro’s body color. Previously, you could have whatever color you liked, as long as it was black.
