That'* right. The '70-73 period was a weird transition period wherein all kinds of things changed many times, includeding the split bumpers to plastic 5mph uglies, but it is all still the same general cody style and therefore falls into the 3rd gen catagory.

Real Camaro fanatics have names for each of the iterations, that I cannot remember, in addition.

Yep!

There was just something about that true pony car ('77-79) that really was different than all the rest.

He says the AC blows warm but the compressor still kicks on? Is that possible? The AC blows warm on one of my cars but I don't hear no compressor kicking on?

Yes, it is possible. Many systems, particularly older ones had low pressure switches set at lower pressures than current systems. This allows the compressor to continue cycling when there is still some refrigerant in the systems, but not enough to cool things down.

Additionally, odd things, like a clogged orifice tube have the potential of making the system think it has enough refrigerant, but the cooilg cycle is interrupted.

Not too common, but not impossible.

BTW, here'* a project '78 Z28 near me:

No, that is a second gen.
1 gen 1967-1969
2 gen 1970-1981
3 gen 1982-1992
4 gen 1993-2002

My buddy had a '70 split bumper project last summer but sold it. I like the '70 split bumper, all first gens, and the '02 SS. Other than that I'm not a huge Camaro fan. So, I would pass on this particular car.

One of my old co-workers had a 71 with split bumpers and a 400 small block. It was a NICE car, but he sold it after a solid year of fighting fuel gremlins. He'* got a 79 Z28 now that he has JUST gotten started on after two years of getting parts from eBay and the yards.
